Typically in the east coast the rock
formations are igneous rocks like granite so the water doesn't pick
up very much calcium so you will have a modest amount of hardness
on the east coast of the united states, in the south central,
primarily the Texas area, you get extremely hard water along with
Yes, we should
really separate soft water from soften water, soft water is a
naturally occurring thing where the hardness never got into the
water similar to rain water, soften water is water that has been
artificially soften in some form. In some parts of the world
primarily western Europe, they do…
My opinion is that
the soft water gives you an incomplete rinse of the soap and that
the soft sodium in the soft water reacts with the lanolin on the
skin and actually produces kind of a film of soap on your body.
The calcium (as calcium carbonate) in hard water replaces the
sodium on the fatty acids of the soap causing them to precipitate
as a sticky scum. This deposits soap scum on the things being
washed and causes the formation of "bathtub ring" on bathtubs,
Hard water interacts with soaps preventing them from cleaning
properly and forming soap scum and bathtub ring (detergents are not
affected this way).
Hard water coats the insides of pipes preventing them from rusting,
but can also clog the pipes with mineral deposits.
Very hard water sometimes has…
It isn't an element, it is the salt sodium chloride a compound.
