Is Well Water Hard or Soft?

Are you purchasing a new home with a well? Maybe your current home’s water supply comes from a well and you’d like to determine its water quality. Either way, you’re probably asking yourself: Is well water hard or soft? We’re diving into this question and more. Read on for all the answers you need about soft vs. hard water!

Soft vs. Hard Water

To understand your home’s well water, it’s important to first consider what actually differentiates hard water from soft water. Water isn’t inherently “hard,” but it’s called “hard” when it becomes infused with minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. These minerals are abundant in soil, which means that well water often becomes hard as it’s exposed to the minerals in the soil surrounding it. So, your well water is likely hard, unless your home has a water softener installed.

Water Softener Systems for Homes With Hard Well Water

Just because your home’s well water might be hard doesn’t mean you have to deal with hard water coming out of your taps and showers. After all, hard water can leave hard-to-clean stains on your bathtub and shower, stubborn water spots on your dishware, and can even shorten the lifespan of your water-using appliances by leaving mineral buildup in your pipes. Fortunately, there’s a solution: water softener systems. A water softener system can efficiently treat your whole home’s water supply, removing minerals that can cause the aforementioned less-than-desirable results.
