You won't have to make assumptions and suffer a big plumbing bill later or have to replace a washer or other water appliance before you need to. Water harness is a major problem for any home owners who have to deal with it, but especially for those who have invested in an alkaline water ionizer. We recently opened a Leveluk SD501 and it was completely clogged with calcium which caused literally  no water to pass through the system. It took fully two days to clean the machine. Hardness in water is mainly due to the presence of Calcium and Magnesium ions and each contributes to the amount of total hardness. Monitoring and controlling hardness is absolutely essential in order to prevent scaling and corrosion and the destruction of your water ionizer.

Is Your Water Hard?
Water is categorized as very soft (0-70 mg/L), soft (70-150 mg/L), slightly hard (150-250 mg/L), moderately hard (250-320 mg/L), hard (320-420 mg/L) and very hard (420 mg/L and above), according to the hardness scale. Our hard water test kit cover all of these ranges. If you have hard water you need to take steps to control the damage it can cause to your pipes and water appliances. Anyone planning on buying a water ionizer should test their water for hardness. If your water is hard, you need to buy an ionizer that allows the use of a citric acid cleaning cartridge to help reduce calcium build up in your machine. Customers with hard water should also install the Magnetizer Hard Water Conditioner magnets.

Understanding HARDNESS in drinking water.
As mentioned above hard water is high in dissolved the minerals calcium and magnesium. As water flows through soil and rock, it dissolves small amounts of these naturally-occurring minerals and carries them into the ground water supply. Water is a great solvent for calcium and magnesium, so if the minerals are present in the soil around your well and its water supply, you can end up with hard water.

Hard water interferes with almost every cleaning task, from doing the laundry to washing dishes to taking a shower. Clothes can look dingy and feel rough and scratchy. Dishes and glasses get spotted and a film may build up on shower doors, bathtubs, sinks and faucets. Washing your hair in hard water may leave it feeling sticky and dull. Finally, hard water can cause a residue to build-up in pipes that can lower water pressure throughout the house.

What are the health effects of Hardness?
Hardness does not pose a health risk and is not regulated by state or federal agencies. In fact, calcium and magnesium in your drinking water can help ensure you get the average daily requirements for these minerals in your diet. An alkaline water ionizer needs these minerals in the water to actually do its miraculous job of making alkaline and antioxidant water.

However hard water can damage your ionizer over time. You should monitor the hardness of your water and make sure that the steps you are taking are effective. Hard water can also be a nuisance due to the mineral buildup on plumbing fixtures and poor soap and detergent performance. It often causes aesthetic problems, such as build-up of scale on pipes and fixtures than can lead to lower water pressure; build-up of deposits on dishes, utensils and laundry basins; difficulty in getting soap and detergent to foam; and lowered efficiency of electric water heaters.
