‘Hard Water’ refers to water supplies that contain elevated levels of either calcium and or magnesium salts. Ground Water supplies that exist in limestone aquifers are often referred to as being ‘Hard’. Hard water is an enormous problem throughout Australia and indeed many places throughout the world. Hard water causes many problems both domestically and in industry including the build up of insoluble scale in hot water systems and commercial boilers and the prevention of soap and detergent from lathering properly.
‘Water softening’ therefore refers to the process of removing naturally occurring dissolved calcium and magnesium salts from water supplies – thereby softening it.
