Plumbing, appliances and domestic water infrastructure all provide essential services to your home. While hard water systems are present in many Australian residences, maintaining their functionality can often be timely and costly process. Hard water itself has been the subject of debate in terms of safety within domestic settings, so it’s important to know how hard water can affect your everyday life. In this blog, Hydrosmart explains what hard water is and how our technology can effectively treat it.
What is Hard Water?
The term ‘hard water’ refers specifically to the mineral content present in your water supply. This mineral content is accumulated when rainwater moves over soil and bedrock when passing through lakes, reservoirs and other water sources. Made up most commonly of calcium and magnesium, these minerals are the main culprits in the deterioration of hard water systems.
The Effects on Domestic Plumbing and Appliances
Mineral deposits present in hard water are left behind in bathtubs, sinks and showers, accumulating in pipes, plumbing infrastructure and over time, are likely to build up in your home appliances. This ‘invisible’ build-up of minerals can cause blockages, decreased water flow and increased pressure in pipes and fixtures. These problems can then lead to the premature deterioration of your home appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines which can be more costly to repair than a hard water treatment system.
The Hydrosmart Solution
Effective hard water treatment involves immediate treatment and preventative methods. Hydrosmart technology is scientifically backed and designed to ensure your hard water systems are functioning smoothly. A Hydrosmart water conditioner uses unique resonance frequencies that disrupt transient bonds between the minerals present in hard water. Once bonds are weakened, large deposits of minerals will begin to break down and pass through your hard water system naturally. Without the need for harsh chemicals, filters or maintenance, hard water treatment has never been more accessible and cost-effective.
With an effective Hydrosmart water conditioner, your plumbing and appliances will last longer, saving you time and money. Contact us today to learn more about what Hydrosmart can do for your home.
