5 Signs That You Have Hard Water

Do you have hard water? It is possible to have it and never realize it. The best way to detect if you have a hard water problem is to recognize the symptoms. The symptoms range from mild to severe. Hard water can be anything from an annoyance to a health hazard. If you have never experienced soft water, you will not have any way of knowing if you have hard water just by experiencing it. There are, however, some common symptoms you can check. Call a expert if you experience any of the following:

1. You Live in an Area Known to Have Hard Water

If you live in a city that is on the list of cities with the worst drinking water in America, you probably have a hard water problem. That said, there are plenty of cities with a hard water problem that are not on the list. California is host to cities with terrible drinking water. San Jose is near enough to problematic cities that its residents need to bring in an expert. 

Fortunately, you can easily find local resources for San Jose water softener professionals that can help. Do the same search for cities in the Nevada and Florida areas as well. Changing the quality of the water on a city or statewide level is very difficult and takes a long time. Even if you are looking at an old list, chances are the problem still exists and you still need all the water-softening help you can get. The good news is that such places also have solutions at the level of individual homes. Avail yourself of those solutions today.

2. You Are Spending Too Much for Water

Water is the most plentiful natural resource on the planet. Getting a clean, safe supply of it shouldn’t break the budget. You know you have a problem if your water bill is through the roof. First, you should check your department of water and power bills to make sure there isn’t a problem with billing. From there, you should check your usage.

Having to run a lot of water for normal living is a sign that you have hard water. Your water is not very effective so you have to use a lot more of it than someone with soft water. When your water is properly softened, you will need much less of it to get ordinary things done.

3. Your Cleaning Supplies Are Ineffective

How much soap are you using for things like bathing and washing your hands? Soft water on the skin feels almost soapy without adding soap. You don’t need very much soap to develop and maintain a proper soap foam that stays on your skin through the washing process. The same goes for soap you use to wash dishes and laundry. When your water is hard, your soap, regardless of the brand, does not work very well.

4. You Get Skin Irritation When You Shower

Because hard water is the result of unfiltered contaminants, you or members of your family might suffer irritation if you have sensitive skin. The issue does not have to be fatal to be a real problem for your quality of life. You might find yourself using unnecessary medications to deal with a skin condition that you don’t actually have. By moving from hard water to soft water, you can eliminate that irritation without resorting to pharmaceuticals. 

5. Your Food Tastes Funny

It is obvious that you might have a problem with hard water if your water tastes funny. But how do you know if your water tastes funny if you have never had good water? Go to the store and purchase a bottle of the best drinking water. If you can taste a big difference, you probably have hard water. It is not just the water, but everything you cook with water that will be affected. Everything from soup to pizza dough depends on quality water. Feed your family more healthy and enjoyable meals by improving the quality of the potable water in your home. 

This planet and its inhabitants are mostly water, but not all water on the planet is created equally. Not all of it is good for humans. Make the water in your home better for humans by using water-softening products and bringing in water-softening experts.
