Should I be concerned about hard water?
We receive many questions on this subject. Anaheim’s water, like virtually all of the water in this region, is considered to be hard. However, water hardness does not pose a health hazard. Rather, having hard water means that over time you may have mineral (calcium and magnesium) deposits on dishes, appliances and plumbing, which may affect their performance and/or appearance. Additionally, hard water requires more soap than soft water.
