The Hard Facts about Hard Water
Priority Mechanical Services Ltd. in Ayr, Ontario, isn’t soft on hard water. That’s because the company knows that although hard water is not a health hazard, it can cause annoying problems when used on a regular basis.
Many municipal water supplies can be “hard” due to relatively high calcium and magnesium content. This can end up creating scaly lime deposits in your shower, reducing the flow of water through your showerhead, due to clogging, and leaving a film on your dishes after you’ve run the dishwasher.
Not only that, but you may also notice that your skin feels dry and soapy after bathing in hard water. This film can actually prevent skin bacteria and other impurities from being completely washed away, while leaving a soapy film in your hair that makes it seem dull and lifeless.
If you notice any of these problems with your municipal or septic water supply, you may want to consider installing a water softener. Priority Mechanical carries a line of high-efficiency water softeners that introduce just the right amount of salt into the water supply to eliminate these “hard facts.” Not only will this help you feel better after a shower and make your recently washed clothes seem a little fresher (not to mention reduce the time it takes to scrub your shower tiles), but it can also save you money on your energy bill.
Sediments from hard water can build up in your hot water tank and decrease its efficiency by up to eight per cent per year, according to Priority Mechanical. The water softeners it offers will balance the hardness of your water, while also filtering out any other potential contaminants.
