Water Quality in Southern California
The majority of the water in Southern California comes from three main sources:
• Colorado River Aqueduct
• State Water Project of Northern California
• Municipal groundwater
Water is considered “hard” when it has a high concentration of dissolved calcium and magnesium. All three of Southern California’s water sources are known to be “hard” due to these minerals and are measured in two different ways.
• Parts per million (ppm)
• grains per gallon (Gpg) of calcium carbonate
Any water source that measures over 3gpg is considered “hard” water. Most of Southern California’s water averages in the 10-20+ gpg range. Municipal water can also contain water impurities that aren’t beneficial to your health. Chlorine, chloramines, chromium 6, arsenic, fluoride and other carcinogens can be found throughout public drinking water.
A water softener is a great solution to help reduce the hardness in your water. Water softeners help eliminate water spots, scale build up on plumbing fixtures and less soap is needed when washing if the water has been softened.
A water conditioner is a great solution to eliminate the potentially harmful impurities leaving you with mountain spring like water throughout your home.
