Is Hard Water Good For You?

Woman looking and wondering what is in her glass of water

If you lived or currently live in a home with hard water, you might be familiar with some of the common issues associated with it. Dry, itchy skin, spotting on dishes, soap scum, and mineral buildup around faucets are just some of the telltale signs your home may have a hard water problem. But are there things about hard water that are actually good for you? This is a common question that warrants diving into to better understand the benefits as well as the drawbacks of living with hard water.

What is Hard Water?

The simple definition of water hardness is the amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium in the water. Hard water is high in dissolved minerals, largely calcium and magnesium.

What are the Pros and Cons of Hard Water?


  1. Intake of Minerals: Hard water minerals like calcium and magnesium are not necessarily bad for the human body when consumed. Drinking water that contains small amounts of these minerals can contribute to your daily intake and have some health benefits.
  2. Taste of Drinking Water: This is a personal preference, but some people like the taste of hard water simply due to the mineral content.


  1. Cleaning: Hard water leaves a mark around your home by way of spotting on showers, foggy glassware, mineral buildup on faucets, staining on toilets and more.
  2. Damage to Plumbing: Long-term exposure to hard water will cause buildup in your plumbing. This will lead to clogging and potential costly repairs.
  3. Hair and Skin Problems: Hard water can leave your skin feeling itchy and your hair dry and lifeless.
  4. Damage to Appliances: Your water using appliances like dishwashers, water heaters, and washing machines can have a drastically shortly lifespan if you are on hard water due to buildup.
