You may have heard soft water is better for you, but did you know it's also better for your home? Water softening can benefit your home, health and wallet.

Hard water is tap water with a high concentration of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Your location and where your water comes from has a lot to do with the hardness level. A Culligan Water Expert can easily and conveniently test your water to find a solution specifically for your home.
Hardness in water can indicate high concentrations of calcium, magnesium and other undissolved minerals. While magnesium and calcium are essential for our health and wellbeing, high amounts of these minerals in your tap water can cause a number of problems around your home.
Hard water could impact more than just your home, it might affect you, too. Hard water contains high amounts of dissolved calcium and magnesium — two minerals that can cause limescale buildup on appliances, hair and skin.
“Why is my hair dry?” It’s a common question with a loaded answer. There are several causes for dry hair: repeated use of heat styling tools without a heat-protectant spray; cold, dry air or UV exposure; hard water at home; washing hair too often; or, using oil-stripping treatments like perms, dyes, and relaxers. Getting to the bottom of your hair problems can benefit more than just your appearance. Dry hair causes dandruff, itchy scalp, and hair loss. Learn about why your locks might feel brittle and how to prevent dry hair.
Experiencing dry, itchy scalp? Your shampoo might not be able to help. From dandruff and dry hair to psoriasis and dermatitis, it’s time to get to the root of your hair problems - your water.

So, how can you treat dry scalp? Here’s everything you should know about how to fix a dry scalp caused by hard water.
Do you know the difference between hard water and problem water? If the answer is no, or you’re scratching your head trying to figure out what both even are, you’re not alone.
