Phoenix is notorious for having extremely hard water. Phoenix is in the top 5 cities for having hard water on a regular basis. Hard water means there is a high amount of minerals in the water. The main culprits causing hard water to occur are calcium magnesium and lime. The higher the concentration of these minerals the harder your water is.
In Phoenix, hard water levels are between 200-400 parts per million (ppm) depending on where you live. As water travels around, it picks up calcium and magnesium making the water hard. The harder it is, the more soap you need to get things clean and the more it causes hard water stains. The combination of hard water and soap creates a film on your glass that can permanently etch your glass.
CLEANING HARD WATER STAINS
If you keep up with your cleaning and remove the scale and sludge, it won’t be a problem for your glass. However, if you are like most people who are busy and don’t have a water softener you are eventually going to get some hard water stains. Sprinklers that either directly hit windows or get some spray back from windows are notorious for causing hard water spots. Sprinklers systems aren’t typically looped into soft water systems or filtered. Over time the window will build up spots that eventually etch into the glass. Rain runoff, water features, and pools are other causes of hard water stains on glass.
REMOVING HARD WATER STAINS ON GLASS
The most natural solution to removing hard water stains is to prevent the glass from getting them in the first place. Have your landscapers reposition or adjust your sprinklers if they are the cause of your hard water stains. After you have fixed the source, there are several hard water stain removers you can get that can remove hard water stains. You can find them at your local box stores.
