Frequently Asked Water Questions

Hard water is the result of dissolved minerals in water. These minerals are primarily calcium and magnesium and they are measured in grains per gallon. It produces scale build up in appliances like dishwashers, ice makers, water heaters and washing machines, which greatly reduces their lifespan. Pure Water Works has the best solutions to reduce hard water and perfect the water in your home.
