Many public water supplies and wells contain a certain amount of calcium and magnesium, which can cause hard water in homes if the concentration is high. After using hard water frequently, these minerals can combine to create limescale in plumbing pipes, faucets, valves, electric and gas water heaters, and kitchen appliances. This limescale can cause flow restriction as well as inefficiency of appliances. Homeowners should be aware of hard water and aim to prevent limescale build up.
