The flow of hard water creates build-up on the inside of pipes, and over a period of time, causes pipes to become completely clogged. Water is considered “hard” if it contains a lot of magnesium, calcium or other minerals. The particles that are found in hard water will cause stains and spots to appear on your glasses and dishes. Also, if you suffer from itchy, dry skin and have a difficult time lathering up soap and toothpaste, you probably have hard water.
There are several water treatment techniques that you can implement to help soften your water. One way to remove salt from water is a process known as reverse osmosis. Reverse osmosis is the passage or diffusion of water through a semipermeable, which blocks the passage of dissolved solutes. Another way to get rid of hard water deposits is to use a water descaling system. Descaling is the process of using acids that release hydrogen ions when dissolved in water. You may also consider installing a water softener in your home.
Water softener systems collect hard minerals, such as magnesium and calcium, and then flush them away. They are the cheapest and most effective method to rid your well water of troublesome hard minerals.

Water softeners can be automatic, semi-automatic or manual. Manual softeners are fairly inexpensive but are quite complicated and time-consuming. Semi-automatic water softeners have two extra components than manual softeners do, like a brine tank, and a basic time-controlled device. They are cheap to buy, but can be very expensive to operate. Fully automatic water softeners are the most popular type used by homeowners. They are the most expensive of the three, but are very cost-effective to use.
