Tips on Determining Hard Water
Too much of the same mineral will lead to hard water. Not only can the water smell and taste bad, it can also damage appliances. Here are a few tips to find out for sure if a home has hard water.
- If the home has city water, call the city or town to get a report.
- If the home has a well, test the water using a kit or tests strips.
- Send a sample of the water to a lab.
- If the water is giving a foul smell and tastes bad but isn't hard, purchase an inline filter that has a charcoal filter inside.
