Hard Water Problems
And Treatment Solutions for New Hampshire Water Hardness
Suffering with hard water problems? Wondering why your laundry feels harsh and scratchy, or why it's so hard to rinse the sticky, soapy film from your skin during a shower? Frustrated because your dishes always seem spotty?
Capital Well Clean Water Center can help.
Hard water is one of the most common problems in New Hampshire homes. But what is it, and what makes it so pervasive? Is it harmful to your health? Perhaps most importantly, how can you soften your water to eliminate these pesky issues?
Elements of Hard Water
Water hardness is a result of excess calcium and magnesium in surface water and ground water. The existence of either element, or both, in your drinking water or well is what causes the water to be "hard." Calcium and magnesium are naturally occurring minerals that come from sedimentary bedrock, affecting many private water supplies in New England areas.
Problems Caused by Hard Water
While hard water is not hazardous to drink, nor is it harmful to your health in any way, it can be a pain to deal with in every day situations. The hardness elements can be difficult to remove from clothing during a wash, not only making them appear dingy but also damaging the fibers. Hard water can leave hair feeling tough and brittle after a shower, and leave soap scum residue in rings around the bathtub. Even worse, significant buildup of lime scale can damage plumbing and fixtures, leading to expensive future repairs.
A recent study also stated that hard water can cause a multitude of skin issues and eczema especially in babies and young children whose skin is more sensitive to elements. “Our study builds on growing evidence of a link between exposure to hard water and the risk of developing eczema in childhood. It’s not yet clear whether calcium carbonate has a direct detrimental effect on the skin barrier, or whether other environmental factors directly related to water hardness, such as the water’s pH, may be responsible.” Dr Carsten Flohr said.
