How Does Hard Water Affect You?
Hard water is the result of high levels of calcium and magnesium in your water. It occurs naturally in over 85% of the water supply in Central Texas. The dissolved minerals in our water get deposited on everything your water touches. Over a short period of time it will do more than just leave unsightly residue on your clothes, dishes, tubs and sinks, it can actually build up deposits that can do damage or cause blockages in your plumbing and hot water heaters. In short, doing nothing about your hard water can cost you money!
Here is a list of common problems caused by hard water:
- Spots on dishes, glassware and utensils.
- Mineral build-up on faucets, sinks and tubs.
- Requires the use of excessive cleaning products and time needed for cleaning, due to mineral build-up.
- Higher electric and gas bills, due to mineral build-up on water heater heating coils.
- Shortened life spans for water using appliances due to mineral build-up on internal parts. This would include your coffee maker and refrigerator's ice maker.
- Increased soap and shampoo use, because hard water doesn’t produce a good lather.
- Stiff, worn clothes from leftover mineral and soap residue.
- Dry, flaky skin from leftover mineral and soap residue.
- Brittle, lifeless hair from leftover mineral and soap residue.

Although Reverse Osmosis seems like a complex system it is really a simple and straightforward water filtration process. And it’s not a new process. High-pressure reverse osmosis systems have been used for years to desalinate* water – to convert brackish or seawater to drinking water.
Osmosis is the passage of water or other solvents through a semipermeable membrane that blocks the passage of dissolved solutes. In short, the holes in the membrane are so tiny only pure water can get through.
The most important points to remember:
All Reverse Osmosis Systems work the same way.
Most Reverse Osmosis systems look alike.
All Reverse Osmosis Systems have the same basic components.
The real difference is the quality of the filters and membranes inside the system.
