Do Do I Remove Calcium From My Water?
Calcium is one of the most abundant elements in water. Calcium levels in your water are not harmful to the human body, but cause a variety of issues related to water quality. If you feel that there might be an abundance of calcium present in your water, consider the symptoms below and review the best treatment options to fit your needs.
Symptoms of Calcium in Water
Calcium in water leaves the distinct tell-tale sign of crusty white scaling, or calcification, on your water fixtures and dishes. High levels of calcium can cause calcification which blocks faucets and causes low water pressure. In addition, another sign of calcium in your water is the lack of suds from soaps and shampoos. If your appliances , such as your dishwater or hot water heater are wearing out quickly, this could be the cause of high levels of calcium. A build up sediment on your hot water heater may be lowering your efficiency, which in turn means higher utility bills. In fact, hard water expenses could raise your utility bills by over $800 per year.
