The Cost of Hard Water


Residents of NE Ohio and Western PA are all too familiar with the absolutely terrible look that hard water stains give our sinks, toilets, showers and baths. No matter how hard or often you clean, there they are mocking you. But what most people don't realize is that hard water stains are your water's way of saying, "PAY ATTENTION TO ME." It's really a cry for help.


When water contains high levels of minerals, such as magnesium, calcium and iron, it's considered "hard." And when it dries? It leaves behind stains. But did you realize that there are actual costs to hard water? If you notice these stains, there's a likely probability that you are paying extra for simple household items like shampoo, soap and dishwashing detergent.


The simple fact is hard water takes more soap and more detergent to clean with. So while your neighbor next door uses one bottle of shampoo every 35 days, you're most likely using at least a bottle and half. And that's just shampoo. Add in detergents, dishwashing liquids, conditioners and even hand soap and body wash and you're looking at a hefty amount of money going down the drain each year to just maintaining those wonderful stains.


And we haven't even discussed the cost of hard water on your appliances yet. You may want to sit down. That mineral-laden water that tastes terrible and leaves all of the stains -- is making your appliance's lifespan lose 30-50%. So, that new smart dishwasher you just bought? You'll be looking at replacing it within 5-7 years.
