A common problem for many home and business owners is hard water (a build up of calcium and magnesium). This combination creates scale when mixed with heat. Scale causes many problems, some of which can be costly. It can damage your plumbing, water heater, and other appliances using water. When added with soap, the minerals make a soap curd or scum that can have many damaging effects on your family or staff such as dry and itchy skin, lifeless hair, duller laundry, and other harsh effects on your fixtures.
