DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HARD AND SOFT WATER
It’s all about the minerals!
Water is made up of more than just oxygen and hydrogen once it hits the ground, where it picks up a variety of different minerals. Calcium and magnesium are the most common ones found in hard water, and the higher its concentration of minerals, the harder it is.
The determining factor between hard and soft water is grains per gallon (GPG). Very hard water has a GPG of around 10 or higher, while the GPG in soft water is usually less than one.
Chlorine will react with organics to produce disinfection byproducts like trihalomethanes (THMs), known to be cancer-causing agents. Chlorine is a strong oxidant that will quickly destroy rubber and plastic components, such as a gaskets and rubber seals in appliances and plumbing fixtures, which in turn causes leaks.
“Risks to health from these by-products are extremely small in comparison with the risks associated with inadequate disinfection.” – World Health Organization
HARD WATER COSTS YOU MONEY!
Due to the minerals that build up, hard water causes the following issues:
- Damage to plumbing & appliances can cost as much as $90/year
- Lower water heating costs up to $100/year
- Damage to fabric can cost as much as $200/year
ADVANTAGES OF SOFTER WATER
- Spot-free glasses & dishware

PROBLEM WATER – IRON, SULFUR, HYDROGEN SULFIDE, BACTERIA
Private water supplies have more water issues than just hardness. Common problems include the presence of sulfur, hydrogen sulfide and iron, which can cause costly damage throughout your home.
If you are experiencing a rotten egg smell in your water, it could come from both the hot and cold water. This could be a hydrogen sulfide problem, or an anode rod in your water heater if it is just your hot water, requiring water heater repair in Colmar, PA, and surrounding areas. Hydrogen sulfide is also corrosive and can cause black staining on fixtures.
IRON CAN BE COSTLY!
If the iron levels in your water are too high, you may experience:
- Red/orange staining in toilet bowls, sinks or on laundry
- Metallic taste or musty odour
- Stringy/slimy reddish orange growth build-up in water closet of toilet (bacterial iron)
Your plumber will know many things about the supply and treatment of your water when you are on a municipal water supply. Private wells require water testing to be done and sent to the H2O analytical testing lab.
BASIC WATER TESTING IS DONE FOR:
- Chlorine & Chloramines
- Water Testing
- Total Dissolved Solids
Water testing can be done by our technicians in Bucks County towns like Buckingham, Warminster, Hatboro, Ivyland and towns in Montgomery County, PA.
