Most municipal water supplies throughout the country go through heavy filtration before they reach the taps in your home, and Santa Fe is no exception. If you’re using ground water instead, you likely have your own water treatment system on-site. Still though, there is often something missing from either of these water treatment systems, and that is protection from hard water.

Without this system in place, you’ll likely find yourself facing the following issues—and their consequences—in your home.
