With the price of everything going up, up, UP, we could all use a few tips on how to save money here and there. If you have hard water, it could be costing you hundreds of dollars every year! Two tell-tale signs of hard water are white scale buildup around your faucets and spots left on clean dishes. You more than likely have hard water, since over 85% of America does!
How Hard Water is Costing You Money and More
Not only is hard water a nuisance, the costs also add up. Here are a few ways hard water is costing you money…
Reduces Water Heater Efficiency- One of the biggest ways hard water is costing you money is by reducing the energy efficiency of your water heater. Hard water leaves behind scale deposits that coat the inside of your water heater. Over time, this scale buildup can drastically reduce the efficiency and lifespan of any water-using appliance. Not only will you have a higher electric bill, your water heater will have to be replaced sooner rather than later.
Appliances and Fixtures- Hard water not only affects your water heater, but all appliances and fixtures that use water. Things like your dishwasher, washing machine and faucets can become clogged by mineral buildup from hard water.
Cleaning & Personal Care Supplies- Hard water neutralizes soap, so you have to use more soap for it to be effective. This goes for soaps and detergents, as well as personal care products such as shampoo, conditioners, body wash and skincare products. Soft water can cut your spending on cleaning products by as much as half!
