As a Utah Homeowner, you have no doubt had to experience our notorious “hard water”. Most cities along the Wasatch Front have a grains per gallon (gpg) rating of 17 to 30! This hard water contains minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, and copper. When these minerals mix with soap they leave behind a film that will stain tile and glass, cause water spots on dishes, make clothes look dingy over time, and dry your skin. Scale deposits from hard water will also shorten the lifespan of your appliances and reduce their efficiency. The Utah soft water experts at Express Home Services can help.
