What is Hard Water Conditioning?
Why It Matters to Households in Australia
Many households and businesses throughout Australia rely on hard water for cooking, cleaning, and washing. In simple terms, hard water is water that has a particularly high mineral content. To be classified as ‘hard’, water must have over 60 milligrams of minerals per litre. Unfortunately, hard water can have a range of negative effects.
The volume of minerals in hard water causes limescale to build-up in plumbing systems and appliances. Heated hard water causes calcium deposits, which can damage kettles and coffee machines. Hard water inhibits the lathering of soap and detergents, making it more difficult to clean our clothes, our hair, and ourselves. Hard water can cause skin eczema, scalp dryness and hair dryness. Using hard water also has an impact on businesses, mining and industrial concerns, local councils and municipal authorities since it hinders turf growth and causes corrosion in pipes.
Hard Water Conditioner
So, what can we do about hard water? Luckily, you can use a water conditioning system to soften hard water and remove many of the problems associated with hard water. Effective hard water treatment works by disrupting the bonds between minerals and compounds. This counteracts mineral precipitation, reduces scale and oxide deposits, and helps to reduce the corrosive effects of hard water.
Using a hard water conditioner ensures that limescale and calcium won’t destroy pipes and appliances, helps you to keep your clothes cleaner, stops spotting and stains from forming on dishware and glasses, and alleviates skin conditions. Softer water also encourages plant and turf growth and is better for livestock.
