Understanding HARDNESS in drinking water.
Hard water interferes with almost every cleaning task, from doing the laundry to washing dishes to taking a shower. Clothes can look dingy and feel rough and scratchy. Dishes and glasses get spotted and a film may build up on shower doors, bathtubs, sinks and faucets. Washing your hair in hard water may leave it feeling sticky and dull. Finally, hard water can cause a residue to build-up in pipes that can lower water pressure throughout the house.
What are the health effects of Hardness?
Hardness does not pose a health risk and is not regulated by state or federal agencies. In fact, calcium and magnesium in your drinking water can help ensure you get the average daily requirements for these minerals in your diet. An alkaline water ionizer needs these minerals in the water to actually do its miraculous job of making alkaline and antioxidant water.
However hard water can damage your ionizer over
time. You should monitor the hardness of your water
and make sure that the steps you are taking are
effective. Hard water can also be a nuisance due to the mineral
buildup on plumbing fixtures and poor soap and
detergent performance. It often causes aesthetic
problems, such as build-up of scale on
pipes and fixtures than can lead to lower water
pressure; build-up of deposits on dishes, utensils
and laundry basins; difficulty in getting soap and
detergent to foam; and lowered efficiency of
electric water heaters.
