Hard Water Composition
The main difference between hard water and soft water is that the former has a high content of hardness-causing dissolved minerals. The most common hardness-causing minerals are calcium and magnesium. According to the Water Quality Association (WQA), hard water is water that contains dissolved hardness minerals above 1 gpg (grains per gallon, or 17.1 ppm or mg/l). Relative levels of hardness have been established as:
Soft Water – less than 1 gpg
Slightly hard – 1 to 3.5 gpg
Moderately hard – 3.5 to 7 gpg
Hard – 7 to 10.5 gpg
Very Hard – 10.5 and higher gpg
Rocky Mountain Water Conditioning can remove the hardness from your water regardless of the level of hardness present. We can GUARANTEE zero grain hard water!
The Effects of Hard Water
So, why get a water softener to remove hardness from your water? Hard water can be very damaging to your plumbing system, clothing, appliances, and to your bank account. Hard water spots your glasses and dishes, causes laundry to appear dull and to deteriorate more quickly, and causes soap scum and scale buildup, making cleaning a chore. Hardness acts like cholesterol in the water system by clogging pipes and showerheads. It also coats the heating elements in certain appliances causing severely reducing energy efficiency and costing you money! Hardness can also cause you to use up to 75% more soap, dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent as well as shampoo and conditioner, drink mixes, etc. than necessary — again costing you money!
