Awareness is there, but homeowners largely remain inactive due to an unfamiliarity with potential solutions.
The issue of hard water can be likened to that of mold. Creeping, consuming and otherwise slow building, it’s a problem that affects not only the health of home occupants but also impacts everything associated with water in the home. The only point where these two break is that the health effects aren’t necessarily as severe.
“While hard water doesn’t often cause substantial health risks, other contaminants often found in conjunction with hard water can cause notable health issues such as stomachaches, nausea, diarrhea, dehydration, and be problematic for infants,” states Tim Dunphy, Water Expert at Leaf Home, a home improvement company dedicated to health and sustainability in residential buildings.
