Hardness is a sensory indicator of water, mainly referring to the concentration of calcium and magnesium ions in water. The water stains on the mirror surface, the spots on the faucet, the yellowing of the bathtub, and the scale in the kettle. In life, these phenomena are not uncommon, and hard water is the main cause of these problems.
So what are the adverse effects of excessively high water?
The pipeline of the equipment is blocked. Studies have shown that scale caused by hard water will cause more than 1/3 of the fuel to be wasted. As the scale accumulates, the pipeline of the equipment is blocked, the flow rate is reduced, and the heating efficiency is lowered.
It also has a great influence on the washing of clothes, etc.
Hard water also has a great influence on the washing of clothes and the like. Since the calcium and magnesium ions in the water react with the active ingredients in the detergent to form a metal salt, the detergency is reduced. Research by the American Washing Association has shown that the cost of detergents and laundry costs caused by hard water has doubled compared to soft water. At the same time, the metal salt may also adhere to the clothes, so that the color and brightness of the clothes are gradually reduced, even the knots, hard, brittle, and shorten the service life of the clothes.
Hard water reduces the cleaning power of personal care products
Since hair growth prefers a weakly acidic environment, it is often used to wash the hair with a weak alkaline hard water, which will gradually erode the hair, become dry, rough, and knotted. In addition, hard water can reduce the cleaning power of personal care products, increase the amount of toiletries, and may even affect hair and skin.
Causes people's weight to exceed metal standards, endangering human health
In the scale formed by the use of water heaters and kettles, most of the calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate, as well as a variety of heavy metal elements, endanger human health.
