What Exactly is the Difference Between Hard and Soft Water?

If you have had your water quality in Loudoun County tested before, you may have been told that you have either hard or soft water; if you have hard water, it may have been suggested that you purchase a water softener. Watch this video to find out the difference between hard and soft water.

Hard water contains extra minerals like calcium, and while this type of water will not affect your health, it can affect your bank account. Hard water will shorten the lifespan of your household appliances. Unlike hard water, soft water promotes lathering of detergents and soaps; this helps you clean garments efficiently and maintain your water-based appliances.
