What Is Hard Water?
Hard water is simply water with a high mineral content, usually calcium or magnesium, which seeps into our drinking water from time to time here in Silver Spring. The good news is that you can drink it safely, since the body can absorb those minerals without ill effect.
However, it does lead to that strange metallic taste in your drinking water, as well as a crusty white build–up on your faucets and fixtures. Showers can feel harsher, and using hard water in your laundry system will cause your colors to fade and your clothes to wear out faster than they should. It may not be dangerous, but hard water is no friend to your household.
Install a Water Softener in Silver Spring
A water softener is a fairly simple device, installed by Mallick Plumbing & Heating at the apex of the water line at to your Silver Spring home. It scrubs the water clean of mineral deposits through a small tank filled with polystyrene beads that perform an ion exchange on the minerals. As a result, your water tastes much cleaner than it might otherwise.
You can see the difference by filling an ice cube tray with water from your faucet, then filling a second one with bottled water from the store. The bottled water will be much clearer than the one from the faucet. The same principle applies to your faucet heads, which will be free of that gross white build–up, and your laundry, which will help your clothes feel softer and retain their colors longer.
