What is hard water?
Hard water can be a difficult thing to deal with, especially if you have it at home. Hard water is usually caused by minerals in the bedrock and will build up on your clothes while washing them or make soap less effective because hard water does not produce suds well. If this sounds like something that may happen where you are located then there might need to be some maintenance done about getting rid of the hardness level in order for things to go smoothly around the house again
The Effects of Hard Water
Hard-water has a variety of effects on your plumbing, home, and the environment. This post will cover what hard water is and how it affects you. The first step in understanding hard water is to define it. Hard water contains minerals like calcium and magnesium that make soap less effective and cause clogs. It also increases lead levels in the body because lead can be found in pipes that are made from copper or iron with high amounts of calcium or magnesium compounds present. In addition to damaging you pipes, hard water can also damage your appliances. When hard water passes through pipes and appliances, the minerals in it corrode them.
Do I need a water softener?
Unfortunately, all water in the greater DFW area is hard, meaning that it contains a high level of minerals. Over time (even relatively short periods of time), hard water can cause irreversible damage to appliances and piping in your home. Hard water most frequently causes failures of water heaters because the excess minerals accumulate on the heating coils in the heater. Some of the most common signs of hard water, which can be over looked, is mineralization scum on faucets or glass shower doors (this scummy buildup usually appears as white or yellow crust).

Whole-home water softener systems are great because it allows for one softening unit to soften water for the whole house (instead of having a softener for every sink). Whole-home water softeners are relatively cheap and extremely easy to maintain. The cost of a water softener system will pay for itself over the years by saving unneeded replacements of appliances and pipes.
How Do Water Softeners Work Anyways?
Water softeners work through a process called ion exchange. In this process, the calcium and magnesium ions in hard water are replaced with sodium ions. The result is softer water that doesn't leave behind any of the calcium or magnesium residue which can clog pipes, damage appliances, and stain clothes.
The brine in the water softener is mixed with your tap-water to begin this chemical reaction; when it does contact other minerals like lime scale deposits from hot showers as well as soap scum on kitchen fixtures- all these form mineral accumulations within plumbing systems which may require costly repairs down the road if left untreated!
