The Holidays are in full swing. That means more cooking and baking, more shared meals and more dishes to tackle. More people visiting equals more showers, flushing and laundry. All of this equals your water using appliances working overtime and hard water effects magnifying!
Hard water spotting, scale build up and discoloration
Hard water causes spots on dishes, flatware and glassware which is not only a pain to remove and takes extra time which is always in short supply, but also an embarrassment. Nothing is worse than setting a beautiful holiday table only to have it marred with unsightly spots and cloudy glassware. Hard water also causes that white, crusty build up at the base of your faucets and causes your shower head to clog, not to mention the build up on shower doors and bathroom tiles. It can also contribute to the rings left behind in the tub when the kiddos are done bathing. A low pH can also be the cause of blue/green staining on fixtures as well.
Damage to your appliances
Those dishwashers, washing machines and hot water heaters that are working double time during the holidays are also impacted by hard water. Hard water build up or scale causes them to work less efficiently, use more detergent and can reduce their lifespan by up to 50%. Hard water also costs more to heat, which adds to your energy bill. Less money spent on your energy bill means more stocking stuffers for Billy and Susie!
Reduced water pressure
That same scale building up in your water using appliances is also building up in your pipes which can lead to restricted water pressure. No one likes a wimpy shower, especially when you’re trying to work out all the kinks left behind from all that holiday wrapping!
