We at H2O TO GO well know the effects of hard water that can be found throughout the house, from the film and scale in the shower and toilets, to the white buildup and spots on faucets, fixtures, mirrors and windows. Cleaning products designed to handle these damaging issues can be costly, toxic and unsafe to use – especially around children.
Your water-bearing appliances get clogged and break down much faster because the unseen damage in the water lines is corrosive and builds up with each passing month. Hot water tanks and tankless system suffer the most from the scale and its cumulative effects. Most water heating systems might last half the time that they should or rarely make it to their warranty expiration date and are replaced far more frequently when not protected with water treatment equipment.
The effects of hard water can even be felt in dull, dingy and rough clothes, towels and sheets. Fabrics fade and wear out much faster than they should. Even worse, they simply don’t get clean in the wash because the detergents can’t foam up in the hard water, so they get trapped in the fibers and won’t rinse out thoroughly. This often causes many skin irritations including itchy, dry skin, pimples and bumps, and even eczema.
