Many standard tap and well water sources have excess amounts of calcium and magnesium in them making the water “hard.” In the H20 business, they call those hard minerals mineral ions. This basically means the water doesn’t have a proper chemical balance. These harsh elements in the water can cause dry skin, dry hair, plumbing problems, and soap incompatibility. The hard water repels soap similar to oil and water making it difficult to wash the soap off of your skin. The only way to reduce these problems is to reduce the excess amounts of calcium and magnesium in the H20. Once the water “softens,” the hard water problems will disappear.
Using a magnetic water conditioner is a healthy, more eco-friendly alternative to chemical based water conditioners. Instead of using chemicals and salts, they implement the use of extremely strong magnets to stop the harmful effects of minerals in your hard water. These magnets are generally Neodymium magnets, which are 4-5 times stronger than any ferrite magnet material. Instead of pulling out the minerals and replacing them with sodium or other chemicals, the magnets simply defuse the minerals. This means, the minerals stay in the water. Since the minerals are defused they no longer carry any harmful effects. When installed correctly, it has been shown that they provide powerful lime scale control as well as effective hardness control.
Using Potassium chloride in your water softener is one of the most popular alternatives to sodium chloride. There are several reason I find it to be so popular, one of them being its compatibility. Nearly every water softener on the market today allows for the use of potassium chloride. In fact, some whole-house digital softeners even have a potassium chloride setting! That makes the switch practically effortless and headache free. You water softener will simply remove the harmful minerals that make your water hard and replace them potassium chloride.
