If the water you use at your home leaves a white residue in your basins and sinks or leaves stain marks on the sanitary fittings or clogs the shower heads or if your clothes look dirty and stiff after washing then the water you are consuming might be a hard water.

Hard water is water that has a high content of calcium and magnesium salts. These salts form deposits in the pipes and appliances commonly called a scale.
Scale formation causes the utensils, appliances, fittings at your home look dirty and at the same time can harm these appliances by decreasing their life by several years while also inflating the power bills. Scale formation in the geysers or kettles can increase the time it would normally take to heat water.

Hard water is found across all regions here in India. If the concentration of calcium and magnesium salts are at 4 grains per gallon water is stated to be mildly hard, at 7 grains per gallon it is considered hard and at 10 grams per gallon water is considered to be very hard.

Water softeners like Auto Softeners can be used to reduce the hardness of water. The water softeners use ion-exchange resins in which the calcium and magnesium ions are exchanged for sodium ions.

The benefits of using a Auto Softener are plenty including the ones listed below:
