Hard vs. Soft Water

How efficient is the water that runs through your plumbing pipes? Hard water isn’t quite as easy to work with as soft water, which has implications for your expenses. Watch this video and learn about the difference between hard and soft water.

Hard and soft water look the same, because you can’t see the mineral content. High levels of calcium and magnesium contribute to hard water. These minerals are absorbed into water that flows through rocks, increasing the concentration in the water. Soft water may have flowed over rocks that didn’t have soluble minerals to bear, keeping a low concentration. Remember, hardness is a spectrum, so water isn’t just completely hard or completely soft.

Hard water can be a pain, but it’s not too much for your Berkeley plumber to handle. Let Albert Nahman Plumbing & Heating make your residential plumbing more efficient. Call us at (510) 843-6904 if you need us.
