Finding out that you have hard water is not pleasant. You want soft water running through your home. But what is the difference between these two water conditions? In today’s post, Carter Quality Plumbing will tell you all about hard and soft water. Read on to learn more and to find out how a whole house water filtration system can make things more pleasant at your home in Rock Hill, Lancaster, Fort Mill, Indian Land, and the Carolinas.

  • Hard Water – This is water containing high amounts of minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and aluminum. Not only does hard water sometimes smell or taste bad, but it will also stain your laundry, damage your plumbing system, and can even be dangerous to your health. But if you have hard water, you aren’t alone. It’s a very common problem in our area.
  • Soft Water – Soft water has neither the minerals nor the unpleasant side effects of hard water. If you don’t have naturally soft water, there is something you can do. Whole house water filtration systems can help give your home the soft water you want.
