The hardness of water is measured by the mineral content, specifically calcium and magnesium. While the water hardness can vary widely depending on the location, many areas of Salt Lake County have hard or very hard water. You can have your water tested to determine the presence of minerals in your water, and there are signs that indicate you may have a hard water problem.
You may have hard water if you have noticed:
- Spots or white residue on glasses or dishes
- Dry skin and hair
- Scaly residue on plumbing fixtures
- Rough or dingy-looking laundry
- Staining on plumbing fixtures
What Are The Dangers of Poor Water Quality?
Hard water can cause a variety of problems for you and your plumbing fixtures and appliances. Hard water can cause pipe buildup, which can reduce water pressure and result in leaks. This can shorten the life of appliances and plumbing fixtures.
In addition, hard water can irritate the skin, causing rashes or eczema outbreaks. Water softeners can solve problems with hard water. A water softener is designed to remove the minerals from the water that cause hardness.
How Can I Tell if I Need Water Treatment Services?
If you notice any signs of poor water quality, such as strange odors, unusual taste, or visible sediment in your water, it's essential to have your water tested by professionals. Additionally, if you rely on well water or live in an area with known water quality issues, regular testing and treatment are recommended.
What Are the Benefits of Investing In A Water Filtration System?
A water filtration system can provide numerous benefits, including improved taste and odor of your water, removal of harmful contaminants, such as chlorine and lead, and protection for your family's health. Additionally, filtered water is better for your skin, hair, and overall well-being.

Hardness is only one of many problems that can degrade water quality, and many options are available for purifying your water. Point-of-use filtration is installed for one fixture, while a whole-house water purification system provides filtered water to all your fixtures and faucets. The best South Jordan water treatment system will depend on the contaminants that are present in your water.
Water purification systems filter out impurities in the water, and several different types of systems are available. Water filtration systems often have mechanical filters or activated carbon filters to remove contaminants from the water. Ultraviolet water purification systems use UV light to neutralize bacteria and viruses.
Reverse osmosis (RO) systems use a semi-permeable membrane that removes particles from the water. The water is forced through the membrane and contaminants such as chlorine and dirt become trapped in the filter and clean water comes out the other side. An RO filter provides the purest drinking water.
