What Is Hard Water?
Hard water results from high levels of magnesium and calcium in your water supply; it is the most common water problem in the United States.
Americans spend $26 billion on laundry detergent, cleaning products and shampoo each year. Studies show hard water demands up to 8 times more soap and detergent.
By reducing soap and detergent use, you will save on your weekly grocery bill. For example, Americans spend $6 billion on laundry detergent each year. Imagine if we could use 8 times less detergent. You can with a Culligan water softener.
The minerals in hard water cling to soap particles that stick to everything, leaving behind soap scum and bathtub rings. No one likes to spend time cleaning bathroom fixtures.
Hard water leaves spots on your dishes, glassware and other household surfaces.
If your dishwasher leaves spots it’s not your soap, it’s your water. Hard water minerals cling to glasses for all to see.
Don’t change your soap, change your water. Your Culligan Man can show you how a water softener can help you reduce your dishwasher detergent use and the spots on your glasses.
Hard water can lead to higher electric and gas bills
Over time the heating elements in your water heater get covered by the hard water minerals in your water. In extreme cases they can literally form a foot thick pile of mineral sludge in the bottom of your water heater. That sludge covers the heating element reducing its efficiency. The sludge will also cause the heating element to fail and require expensive repairs.
Hard water can shorten the life of your appliances
Hard water minerals coat everything. In dishwashers they coat the heating element, plug wash mechanisms and shorten the life of the appliance.
Eliminate the hard water minerals through water treatment with a Culligan Water Softener.
