Although the EPA has no published limits on calcium and magnesium, these minerals can have devastating affects on your home’s plumbing and ability to clean. Clothes can look dingy and feel rough and scratchy. Also, dishes and glasses get spotted and a film may build up on shower doors, bathtubs, sinks and faucets. Washing your hair in hard water may leave it feeling sticky and dull. Importantly, scale can build-up in pipes while lowering water pressure throughout the house. The EPA maximum allowable levels for iron as a secondary contaminant is .3 parts per million and for manganese is .05 parts per million. Small amounts of these minerals can have very noticeable, even devastating affects on your home’s water quality.

Other Affects of Hard Water

Hard water scale can build up inside hot water heaters, insulating the temperature sensor inside the tank and creating extra work to bring the temperature up to the set level. Consequently, this will reduce the life of your hot water heater and likely require early replacement. Also, there is the potential for corrosion inside pipes. You may see staining throughout the home’s showers, bathtubs, and sinks. Hot water heaters may fail way ahead of their normal useful life.  For more information on hard water, see the link at usgs.gov/edu/hardness.html.
