There are two types of water in your home – working water and drinking water. Working water is used for bathing, laundry, washing dishes, and cleaning. Drinking water is the most important water in your home because you ingest it. Ever wonder about the quality of your home’s drinking and working water?

Limestone Deposits in Kentucky Tap Water
Kentucky’s water is considered hard because it’s full of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and limestone. These minerals are the main cause of common household issues such as clogged pipes, foul odors, and limescale deposits on fixtures. This can stop appliances and increase the energy usage due to mineral deposits slowing down the water that flows through them.
How Hard Water In Kentucky Is Measured
Hardness is measured in grains per gallon on a scale from 0 to 10+. Here at GreenBox Home Services, we like to imagine that one grain of hardness is about the size of a single TicTac. So if your water is 0 grains per gallon of hardness, then it contains zero TicTacs, and is considered soft. If your water measures a 3+ then it’s considered hard. These hardness levels are responsible for the soap curd, scale buildup in pipes and on fixtures, bathtub rings, dry skin & hair, and numerous other household problems.
