Hard water is a common trouble for many homes in California. Water is considered “hard” when it has a higher concentration of minerals such as magnesium and calcium suspended it. Even the best water treatment plants can’t prevent hard water, since the minerals enter the freshwater supply through groundwater seepage that occurs after the water has left the municipal treatment plant.
Why is hard water a problem? It’s not harmful to drink; minerals like magnesium are found in many foods. The trouble hard water creates is for a household’s plumbing system, appliances, and some basic daily routines. If you believe your home has hard water, we recommend you call our water treatment specialists to arrange for them to install one of our water softener systems in Santa Barbara, CA.
