I want to tell you and everyone else that reads my post about the benefits of soft water. Most people in urban areas live in hard water regions. Water is water right? Well yes and no. Soft water is preferred if you can get it but hard water is okay if you live in a hard water area.

Well now there’s a solution to hard water and that is to make it soft. But is this really a solution looking for a problem? Is hard water really so bad? What’s hard water anyway?

Well let’s examine each of those points in turn. First, what is hard water?

Well water falls to earth in the form of rain, sleet or snow. Well we all know that. But before it gets to you if goes on a journey and that journey takes it through mountains, underground water courses to lakes, to reservoirs. Along its journey it accommodates (dissolves) salts. These are normally compounds of calcium and magnesium and this is what makes your water hard. So what’s the problem?

Well there wouldn’t be a problem if those salts stayed in the water . But they don’t they leach out and the leach out faster when the water is heated. This results is in the limescale deposits you see around taps, on baths and especially in showers, where it leaves an unsightly hard white chalky substance. Which is quite difficult to remove and it always comes back

But it gets much worse than this. It’s the limescale you can’t see that’s the problem. And that occurs inside your water pipes. These get clogged up bit by bit, year by year. Slowly reducing the efficiency of your plumbing. It’s a bit like the cholesterol build up in humans.
