What Causes Hard Water and How it is Treated?

Water that has an excessive amount of mineral content is known as hard water. The minerals usually range from high amounts of magnesium and calcium in the form of carbonates, metal ions and also include several other sulfates, bicarbonates and metal ions.

Hard water usually does not have any hazardous effects on the physical health of people, but it can cause considerable damage to the things that come in contact with it on a regular basis.  Hard water scales and leaves limescale deposits that can be extremely hard to get rid of. Over time limescale deposits can grow and render pipes useless if not removed properly.

If your properties are being affected by the hard water, there is no need to worry as the expert technicians and plumbers from Rooter-Man can solve the problems for you without any trouble.

What Causes Hard Water?

The water available globally doesn’t exist in the pure H2O form. It needs certain minerals to support life on Earth. The amount of the minerals available in the water determines the hardness and the softness of the water as the high amount means hard water and low amount means soft water.

The majority of the water supplied to houses is hard water. As it doesn’t have any adverse reaction on the health, people often ignore it. Ignoring the hard water does more harm than good because it leaves limescale deposits that are capable of blocking drain pipes. They are also known as leaving a hard crust-like deposit on the taps, faucets, bathtubs, and kitchen appliances that cannot be removed without hours of work.

How can Hard Water be treated?

The markets are filled with cleaners that claim to treat the scaling caused by the hard water on the surface of the fixtures and appliances. The thing is that most don’t deliver the results they promise. Moreover, there are a lot of DIYs that could be found on the home-related blogs, but most require a lot a time and effort.

The commercial cleaners and the DIYs have one thing in common, and that is that they only deal with the effects of the hard water. So instead of wasting money on the DIY supplies and the commercial cleaners, why not invest in something that is cost effective as well as the definite solution to the problems caused by hard water?
