What are the affects of Hard Water?
Hard water affects everything in your home, from your pipes and appliances to your hair and skin. The disadvantages of hard water can be felt everywhere, even your pocket, because water is used in so many of your everyday activities. The costs may appear insignificant in the near term, but they mount up over the course of a year. When you multiply that by the lifespan of a water softener, you're talking about a lot of money.
Hard water has four major financial implications. A homeowner can estimate these estimated savings over the course of a year by employing a water softener:
-Cleaning and personal care (a 50% reduction in soap, lotion, detergent, and other purchases): Rs.33,439 saved with soft water
-Soft water saves Rs. 4,458 on gas and electric (due to heat loss owing to scale).
-Soft water saves Rs. 14,862 on washable things (clothes, towels, and bedding).
-Soft water saves Rs. 6,687 on plumbing and appliances (repair and replacement).
Hard water problem:
-Taste and Odour:
We want the water we drink every day to satisfy our thirst while also leaving us feeling clean and refreshed. The satisfaction we get from our water is gone when it has a terrible odour or bad taste. Here are some of the most typical aroma and taste issues that your water may encounter:
“Rotten Egg” smell: The presence of hydrogen sulphide, a colourless and corrosive gas commonly present in groundwater, is indicated by the taste or smell of sulphur in your water, which is similar to the stench of rotten eggs. Bacteria in the water can cause it, and it can also make the water taste salty. In large concentrations, it can also harm pipelines and metal parts in appliances.
Musty, earthy odours and taste: Decomposing organic waste in the plumbing or the water source itself could be the source of such odours and tastes. This is more typical in houses that get their water from the tap.
Chlorine taste and smell: Chlorine is commonly found in municipal water supplies as part of the routine treatment, disinfection, and sterilisation process. It is possible to improve the taste and smell of your water by removing the chlorine flavour and odour. When chlorine enters your home, getting rid of it can protect your skin, hair, clothes, and appliances from the drying and fading.
Metallic taste: The presence of mercury, lead, copper, arsenic, or iron in the water can be detected by tasting or smelling metals. Manganese and zinc can generate a metallic odour or taste in your water pipes due to ageing or corrosion.
-Cloudiness and discoloration issue:
The level of dissolved solids in your water is the most common cause of discoloration or a foggy, opaque look. Turbidity is a term used to describe the increase in the number of tiny particles in your water produced by natural disturbances. These solids can change the way your water tastes, smells, performs, and looks in your home. Even if your water appears clear, it should be tested for turbidity to determine the best hard water treatment method.
Corrosion of pipes and plumbing fixtures can be caused by a variety of water-related issues, including hard water issues. Rusting is the term for the corrosion of iron or steel. Corrosion will be accelerated in your home owing to a number of variables, including the quality of your water.Problems with hard water include hazy glassware and lime-scale build-up in a water pipe.This list of causes comes from the Water Quality Association includes following as well:
>Acidity (low pH)
>Mineral concentrations are high
>Electrolysis of stray current
>Dissimilar metals produce galvanic corrosion
>Oxygen dissolved in the water
>Temperatures in the water
All these issues can be addressed properly by just installing a proper water softener. Netsol can provide a perfect match for your needs as it is committed to do so.
