How is your water?

Did you know that 17 grains of hardness in your water causes 1 lb of rock to enter your plumbing system for every 1000 gallons of water used? Hard water deposits encrusting scale in plumbing and water-using appliances. Scale buildup can increase energy bills by 25% or more! Hard water reduces flow capacity, decreases efficiency of water heaters, and requires additional cleaning chemicals.
