Water Testing For Hardness

If you can see the buildup of white scale on your appliances, you can likely guess you have hard water. A professional hard water test can provide you with specific information. High levels of hard water cuts the lifespan of your water-using appliances by one-third! In addition, showering in hard water severely dries out skin and hair.
