After being plagued with hard water problems for over 20 years, I was excited at the possibility of relocating from my home in the Houston area to Northern California. I figured water in this part of the country had to offer some relief from the cloudy minerals that attach to everything.
Wow, was I mistaken. The water in this part of the country is comparable to what I was just running from. How common is hard water?
After doing some research on mineral content in water, I was surprised to learn that hard water is much more common then I had originally anticipated. Over 85% of the U.S. is classified as having hard water, which is anything over 120ppm according to the USGS. Another point is that as our ground water and aquifers become more exhausted, the concentration of minerals increases.
The question remains,
How Common Is Hard Water In the U.S., And What Can I Do About It?
You can install a water softener which can help alleviate some of your indoor problems, however, you still have to worry about your outside windows, patio furniture, vehicle headlights, and anything else that the water comes in contact with. Or, you can buy one of the many product on the market which claim to remover hard water and try your luck there. The problem with that is, once you clean the surface the water spots build up the next time you turn the water on.
After trying many of the products on the market and realizing that they all vary in their effectiveness, the one that I found to be most effective is called Bring It On Cleaner. What is unique about this cleaner is that, not only does it work, It has a companion product that you apply once the surface is clean, which allow the water to sheet off your hard surfaces. This has been a life saver for me, it keeps the minerals off my hard surfaces for a couple of months at a time. Now I can enjoy clear windows and spot free surfaces.
Also, try these amazing new Bring It On Drill Brushes for a much quicker and effective clean.
Thank you Bring It On Cleaner
