Coffee makers most likely will have two problems stemming from hard water. The mineral buildup clogs the coffee maker and affects your coffee taste. Use soft water for less maintenance, longer-lasting coffee makers, and better-tasting coffee.
Hard water can reduce the lifespan of your washing machine by three years or more. Mineral buildup in your appliance's water filter will eventually break down due to restricted water flow. Suppose that isn't enough of a reason. In that case, hard water minerals like calcium and magnesium prevent water from mixing with detergent and leave soap behind, requiring more detergent each and every wash cycle.
Hard water in your dishwashers causes water spots, requiring you to hand wash again or use additional products to counteract the hard water minerals. Using soft water in your home can prevent water spots with no other products needed, just regular dish detergent. Saving money and not worrying about water spots on your glasses and dishes is a win-win.
Ok, this is not necessarily an appliance, but the hard water in your shower leaves water spots on your shower doors the same way it does in the dishwasher. Hard water buildup on pipes and plumbing can cause additional maintenance and repairs needed throughout the years.
Many effects of hard water are long-term and cost you more money in repairing and replacing appliances and plumbing. Getting your home fitted with the latest Hague Quality Water Products to get your home the money-saving soft water is well worth the small investment both long term and short term.
