If you live in Willow Glen and get your water from the city, then you’re likely receiving any combination of local groundwater, surface water that’s been imported from other areas, and mountain water run-off. Each of the sources used to provide water to Willow Glen may have an exceptionally high concentration of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3). The groundwater measures in at an average 307 ppm and ranges as high as 506ppm. Such concentrations of CaCO3 make for extremely hard water (water with a CaCo3 concentration over 60 ppm is considered “hard”). Hard water doesn’t pose any health risks, but, when used regularly as a household or business’s primary water source, it can prove cumbersome and significantly costly over time.
Hard water can also cause a build-up in your hot water heater, leading to higher energy costs. In many cases, hard water deposits can prematurely curtail the life of your hot water heater, which, we all know is not cheap to replace. Such are the major harms of regular hard water usage, but what about the more overlooked, subtle hard water ramifications? Your clothes lose their color faster, your skin and hair get dried out, chalky deposits are left on glass and stemware, shower walls are nearly impossible to clean, and drains develop a white residue that simply can’t be removed. When you think of hard water as an accumulation of several small and larger scale problems, then you may begin to see the benefits of taking action.
