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.

  • George Craggy

    Jonathan, I wanted to drop a couple of lines to tell you how satisfied and happy that I chose Capital Well Co. for my water needs. From your lead man Steve to your drill people, your plumbing guy and your guy on the back hoe. Everyone that cast a shadow on my door threshold were polite, professional and willing to take the time to explain and answer my questions; which were many . Jon, it was my pleasure to meet you today and pleased that you came by for a follow up visit and explain how the heater works. SO...if I get a chance to tell everyone that needs a new well, I definitely will. It is apparent there is no "I" in your team . Thank you everyone.
  • Richard Meaney

    Mr. Swain, Thank you so much for the service Capital Well provided at my home today. I left a message with you at the behest of Ed Monty. I received a prompt phone call from Greg to arrange for a service call and to discuss what might need to be done. Promptly at (actually a few minutes before) the scheduled time, Bobby showed up to perform the service. Bobby was excellent at explaining the service, why some things were needed and how the well and pump worked, and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. All in all, this was a very positive experience for us. Thanks to you and the people at Capital Well for prompt, courteous, and efficient service.
