How do you measure Scales and Spots?
As you must have noticed that your dishes and fixtures have scale and spots, but do you really know that these are entirely two different things?
Whilst water spots and scales are related to hard water contaminants in your feed, they are different and need to be addressed and treated in different ways.
BASICS OF SCALE
Hard mineral deposits are known as scales. These deposits accumulate inside our daily based appliances where in the flow of water occurs such as showerheads, faucet aerators, water heaters, icemakers, and pipes. It is often known as calcium build-up or lime scale and it is formed when the minerals dissolved in your water acquires solid state on surfaces. The process is known as precipitation. This is actually a responsive change to various actions such as change in pressure, water turbulence or temperature.
This accumulation of precipitates eventually disrupts the appliances and can cost heavy in terms of economy for large scale users. Formation of a scale can also decrease the water flow rate inside your home, allowing water to spray sideways in showers and faucets. Pinhole leaks in your pipes are actually caused by scale formation.
Very similar to the accumulation of scale whilst spotting is made from the same minerals, it forms in a different way (formation process). It usuallyoccurs on shower stall doors, countertops, crockery, the outside of your faucet aerators and the appliances that are used on daily basis. Mineral accumulation usually takes up place if the water is splashed and it evaporates leaving the minerals behind. The clear idea can be ascertained from wet surfaces. It is one of the easiest ways to see that you have hard water issues in your home (detection of hard water). It may be difficult for any consumer to check whether there pipes have scale formation but spotting can be easily deducted by looking carefully on your crockery.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
Water hardness occurs when there are enough traces of magnesium and calcium minerals dissolved in the water. The hardness level of your water will vary depending upon the quantity ofgrains of minerals (or grains which cause hardness) are present per gallon of water. Thereare ample numbers of different domestic water treatment options to correct hard water; you will need to choose a system that will eliminate the excess minerals in your water without increasing cost. The level of hardness water will be the key to dictate your choice of system, but by removing the magnesium and calcium minerals, you can prevent scale from accumulating and spotting around your home appliances and thereby saving cost.
While spotting can be frustrating, they could indicate more serious problem inside your pipes, plumbing, and appliances that are used on daily basis.
If the water that is used contains minerals, it is therefore necessary to know the underlying cause so that it will be beneficial to eradicate the problem from the ground.
