You may think that you do not see the problems of impure utility water, but answer these questions to understand if that is true:
a. Do you see white marks on your taps and fixtures in your bathroom that are difficult to remove? – This is because hardness in water is caused by presence of calcium and magnesium which form salts that stick to surfaces they come in contact with. These are very difficult to remove and leave ugly looking marks on your expensive fixtures, basins, etc.
b. Do you notice the force of water in your taps and showers going down? – This is because the salts stick to surfaces and clog them reducing the pressure in your taps and fixtures.
c. Have you faced a difference in the lather while shampooing from when you visit a different place? – Hard water lathers much less thus reducing the efficiency of your shampoos, soaps, detergents. Soft water on the other hand gives you a great bathing experience.
d. Do you see your hair getting dry and fizzy as soon as it dries? - Hard water leaves salts on your scalp making it dry and frizzy.
