Hard water is not a problem that is unique to any one part of the country. It affects just as many homeowners here in Utah as it does anywhere else. The good news is that hard water isn’t particularly unhealthy. It’s water that consists of high amounts of mineral contents—typically calcium and magnesium—that your body can safely absorb.
However, just because hard water won’t make you ill doesn’t mean it’s good for your quality of life. In fact, in addition to impacting how you cook and clean, after time hard water can actually damage your plumbing system to the point that you need repiping or leak repair.
