What is Hard Water?

Hard water contains large amounts of calcium and magnesium — two minerals that cause the soapy scum on glasses and lime residue on bathroom fixtures. While suitable for drinking and gardening, hard water can cause mineral build-up in water heaters, pipes, dishwashers and showerheads, reducing its flow. Soap and shampoo’s ability to lather is reduced, and laundry becomes stiffer and duller in appearance.

Classification Water Hardness
Soft below 17 mg/litre or ppm (0 – 1 gpg)
Slightly hard 17.1 – 60 mg/litre or ppm (1.1 – 3.5 gpg)
Moderately hard 61 – 120 mg/litre or ppm (3.6 – 7 gpg)
Hard 121 – 180 mg/litre or ppm (7.1 – 10.5 gpg)
Very hard over 180 mg/litre or ppm (over 10.5 gpg)

How to Decide if You Should Buy a Water Softener

Above 121 mg/liter, you may want to consider a water softener. Generally speaking, groundwater (well water taken from aquifers in the ground) is hard. Some municipalities in Canada use groundwater to supply water to residents. Residents, in small or rural communities, may not have municipal water service and get water from private or communal wells.

If you care about  your family health it is better to test your water. HVAC Green by Design offers you a great opportunity to test the quality of water.
