Hard water causes problems chiefly because it forms scale in pipework and, particularly, in hot water tanks, heating systems and appliances such as kettles, showers and washing machines. Scale can cause major expense when it collects in your water heating system with symptoms such as sludge, noisy radiators, reduced flow and heating efficiency. In time, your entire heating system may have to be replaced as it will become very inefficient.
Rainwater is soft naturally and only becomes hard after it rains and peculates through chalk and limestone in the ground, dissolving some of these minerals in the process. In Ireland, the kind of water you have depends on the geology of your area and the source of your water supply.
