6 Warning Signs Of Hard Water In The Home

Are you constantly scrubbing off-white hard water spots from your fixtures? These are the calcium deposits that are left behind from hard water. But your faucets aren’t the only things these minerals stick to… they also bind to soaps and detergents, essentially curdling them. This makes soaps sticky instead of their normal slippery feel, which leaves behind residue in your shower, dishes, hair, skin, and clothing. Since hard water minerals deplete the effectiveness of soap, you might find yourself using more than you need to get your home clean. Using more soap leads to more sticky soap scum — it’s a never-ending cycle!

Hard water can have a negative effect on your hair. If hard water is running through your home, you may notice your hair feels filmy and straw-like. This is because the excess minerals in the water combine with shampoo to form a curd-like substance that sticks to your hair, much like soap scum sticks to the walls of your shower. Your initial reaction may be to wash your hair more frequently to remove the soapy residue from your hair; however, the more often you shampoo your hair in hard water, the less moisture can effectively enter the hair strands. This results in dry, coarse, and frizzy hair. This also dries out your scalp, causing dandruff.

You also may notice your hair has a harder time retaining color. The minerals in hard water deposit on the hair shaft that often causes colored hair to turn a brassy tone. Frequent washing may also make the color to fade quickly as well.

Deposits from hard water can clog up your shower head too, meaning less water pressure to rinse your hair clean.

Showerheads aren’t the only things that can get clogged thanks to hard water.  It can cause major plumbing issues as well.

Scale deposits build up inside your pipes, like plaque inside an artery, constricting the flow of water, eventually leading to backups and that require a call to a plumber. You can find out more here: What Hard Water Plumbing Problems and High Cholesterol Have in Common.

Because washing in hard water will leave soap behind, it causes people’s skin to get dried out and itchy.  Mineral deposits left on the body will suck the moisture right out of your skin.

The skin condition eczema is fairly common, especially among younger children. Studies have shown that bathing in hard water could cause eczema symptoms to worsen and could increase the risk of developing eczema in elementary-school-age children.

As you now know, minerals like calcium and magnesium prevent soaps from functioning in water and laundry detergent is no exception. The same white, chalky substance in your sink and shower gets stuck in your laundry too.

The result is dingy looking clothes that don’t feel completely clean after they come out of your dryer. The sticky residue on your clothes will even attract and hold more dirt as you wear them. Hard water can cause clothes to fade and wear out quickly.

Mineral buildup leaves your bath towels feeling stiff. The hard water literally makes them hard.  Not only that – the residue that collects on your towels will make them less absorbent over time.

This could be the home’s most expensive hard water problem. Those scale deposits can wreak havoc on many appliances in your home, from the dishwasher to the hot water heater. Hard water can wear them down over time. They become less and less effective until eventually, they break down.

A buildup of minerals in your water heater can make it far less efficient. The same goes for other appliances like dishwashers, coffee pots, washing machines, and humidifiers. Many advancements in technology have made “high efficiency” versions of all of these appliances, which can’t function as intended when bogged down by hard water.

Also, the icemaker in your fridge can stop working as scale deposits clog up valves. The American Water Works Association says hard water can cause a washing machine to wear out 30% faster than normal.

Under-The-Counter or Counter Top Installation

With its unique technology, flexible design and compact size the WOW reverse osmosis system allows for both under-the-counter installation or counter top installation – so both renters and home owners can enjoy clean, pure RO water at their fingertips.  The system is also easily installed in RV’s, boats and ice makers.  It can also operate at low water pressure – this has worldwide benefits.

Best Water = Better Health

As an essential nutrient for our bodies, nothing tops water.  But not just any water – your body requires pure water.  With chlorine, fluoride, lead and other chemical contaminants (including residual pharmaceutical drugs) routinely present in our water supply, today’s water does not make for healthy people. WOW water is pure – it makes for healthy people.

Better Quality Water

With game-changing technology, the WOW reverse osmosis water system produces the highest quality RO water in the industry.  As added bonuses, the multi-patented WOW system delivers a constant flow rate – no other residential RO system does this – and produces up to 500% less waste water of any conventional RO system available.

Save Money – Save the Planet

Bottled water from Costco, Trader Joe’s, Walmart, etc. costs a small fortune (and do you know about the Pacific Garbage Patch? – a floating island the size of Texas in the middle of the Pacific Ocean made of plastic trash, water bottles and bags – Google it).  With your own WOW reverse osmosis system you get a win-win situation – better quality, less costly, and better for the environment.
