"If you notice white calcification, you very likely have hard water."
Hard water is generally found in areas that are composed of limestone. Calcium and magnesium are absorbed into the water as it comes in contact with the limestone. The level of absorption varies by region. Hardness in water is found in both deep drilled and shore wells, it can also be present in rivers and lakes with spring fed water sources.
Removing hardness from water will save money and reduce the amount of cleaning products used.
