Hard Water Problems

What is Hard Water?

Hard water is caused by dissolved minerals calcium and magnesium and is measured as grains per gallon (gpg).

  • SOFT - 0.6 to 3.6 gpg

  • MODERATE - 3.6 to 7.0 gpg

  • HARD - 7.0 to 10.5 gpg

  • VERY HARD - > 10.5 gpg

When combined with heat or soap hard water becomes extremely problematic. Heat and hard water create the formation of scale or rock. Scale builds up in plumbing, water using appliances, water heaters and fixtures. Soap reacts with hard water to create soap scum or curd making cleaning harder, your laundry duller and clinging to hair & skin.
