Water 101

Drinking water systems are everywhere... Does that mean everyone needs them?

Soft Water? Well, I Never...!

Let's just admit it... soft water sounds a little sensual.  Like a pina colada, or getting caught in the rain, the idea of showering in "soft" water brings to mind a luxurious spa massage administered by cherubs.  A wonderful idea, but ultimately impossible.  Anyone who lives in the South has simply accepted the fact that tap water is hard as calculus.  Always has been, always will be.  

Except, it doesn't HAVE to.  Soft, velvety water isn't a myth.  The yeti might be, but you can actually enjoy silky soft water.

I can almost hear you thinking, "Well, sure, soft water would be good to shower in, but is it worth plopping down hard-earned cash for a whole home system?"  Let's take a quick peek at what you're currently working with at your local tap source. in your home 24/7.  

Foggy, stained glassware.  The calcium and magnesium in hard water do a number on your glassware

over time, leaving thick scaly buildup and etching.  Yummy!  Assuming you don't want to keeping buying glasses every year, there are essentially three options for fixing this: (1) repeatedly soak the glasses, in vinegar or a baking soda solution every couple of months, (2) purchase an expensive and acidic chemical cleaning agent (remember to buy gloves as well ... the acid will take off your fingerprint) and try not to breathe too much, or (3) go ahead and install the Whole Home System from Dupure.


Maybe you could also just hang onto those built-up glasses and use them just for serving milk.


Overloaded appliances and plumbing.  Hard water just loves dishwashers, washing machines, shower heads, faucets, pipes, and other areas in your house that water runs through.  In fact, hard water loves your plumbing so much that it leaves all kinds of minerals behind to clog up pipes, valves, strainers, and other vital components needed to keep it running.  Just pop open your water heater to get an idea of how much build-up you're dealing with - if you live in the south, the bottom of your heater is rising at least an inch every year.  That's literally heavy news, brother.

Foggy, stained shower doors.  If your shower appears to be frosted, and it wasn't last year, then you have a prime example of hard water. Here's the 'hard' truth:  Your shower head is spraying calcium, magnesium, gypsum, dolomite, and other minerals all over you and your loved ones.  Over time, hard water wants you all to itself and chooses to hide you from the rest of the house.  And don't forget about soap scum, quite possibly one of the most aptly named things on this planet.  A soft water system removes that too.

Stained fences.  You know how you notice stained, discolored fences as you're driving through the neighborhood?  How they make the

house appear dilapidated? Yeah, that's hard water in the sprinklers, making its presence known.  Neighbors love those fences, by the way.

Consider that a Whole Home System by Dupure would remove virtually ALL of the harmful minerals in your water, leaving only velvety, smooth water.  Water that would caress and gently clean your fences...as well as the relationship with old Mr. Johnson next door.



Hopefully, this helps you understand how hard water is slowly destroying your stuff.  Why not give a Whole Home System from Dupure a try, and get back to enjoying yourself?  

 




That ain't milk, mister!
