Hard Water

Hard water is a way to describe water. Water passes through soft rocks, such as shale or limestone and absorbs calcium and magnesium deposits, thus creating “hardness” in the water. This hardness causes scale to build up in pipes, appliances, fixtures and water heaters. It will also increase the amount of soap needed to create a good lather.

Solution: The best solution is a water conditioner installed. By utilizing a water conditioner, Carroll Water can help reduce rock and mineral deposits from occurring in the water flowing through your home or business. It will also decrease the amount of soaps, cleaning products, and time spent cleaning hard water stains, thus saving unnecessary strain on your body and your budget.
