Water Softening

Large amounts of magnesium, calcium, and iron in your water can be detrimental to your plumbing, fixtures, skin, hair, dishes, and clothes. Hard Water Problems

Laundering

Clothes washed in hard water often look dingy and feel harsh and cratchy. The hardness minerals combine with some soils to form insoluble salts, making them difficult to remove. Soil on clothes can introduce even more hardness minerals into the wash water. Continuous laundering in hard water can damage fibers and shorten the life of clothes by up to 40 percent.

Bathing

Bathing with soap in hard water leaves a film of sticky soap curd on the skin. Take a long hard look at your bathtub after a bath, that ring you see around the tub is the same soap curd left on your skin. The film may prevent removal of soil and bacteria from your skin and leave you with a non so clean feeling especially in the southern californai area. Soap curd interferes with the return of skin to its normal, slightly acid condition, and may lead to irritation. Soap curd on hair may make it dull, lifeless and difficult to manage. That "squeaky" feeling is not clean skin, it is left over curd on your skin.  Your skin naturally has oils that make your skin slick and moist when clean.
