Does your water give you dry itchy skin and frizzy hair? If so, the culprit is either hard water or chlorine. About 85% of Americans have hard water, and northern Illinois is in a region of extreme water hardness. This means the water is full of excess minerals that cling to you and dry you out. Meanwhile, chlorine is added to municipal water supplies as a disinfectant. However, its destructive effects have been shown to cause acne, rashes, and eczema. A water softener will reduce your water’s hardness, and a whole home water treatment system will dechlorinate it—so if you have dry itchy skin, call Angel Water to see which solution you need!
