All water is composed of 2 hydrogen atoms and 1 oxygen atom, but what many people don’t realize is that it can also contain other materials. For example, ground water often seeps into and through limestone, where it picks up materials such as calcium, iron and magnesium deposits. Water that has a high mineral content is known as “hard” water. Hard water is generally perfectly safe to consume, but it is decidedly NOT 100% pure H²O.
If you notice that your tap water has a strange odour or taste, you see brown or reddish stains on porcelain, your clothes are not getting as clean as they should, or it becomes difficult to rinse the soapy residue from your body when you shower, you might have hard water. Hard water can also cause pipes to clog, wear out appliances more quickly and cause skin irritation.
