  • 3-6 gpg = Moderately Hard Water
  • 6-9 gpg = Hard Water
  • 9+ gpg = Extremely Hard Water
Hard water causes scum buildup and leaves the foggy film on your glassware. It'll also cause your appliances to lose their longevity and your skin to dry out faster than it should.

Likely Water Treatment Solutions for You:

These change your water by removing the invisible or adding elements to the water.  Water treatment can remove calcium (hard water), iron which causes staining or raises the pH in acidic water by adding calcium to the water. A UV light is used to remove bacteria or any type of ozone or chlorine.

Softeners are a type of water treatment that corrects hard water by removing the calcium and adding a very minute amount of sodium. Then the unit performs a self-cleaning backwash cycle that gets rid of the calcium.

Filtration uses a filter or cartridge to remove visible particles like sand, grit; and particles like chlorine and iron that are just small enough to be invisible to the naked eye.
