Hard Water Woes: Exploring the Wonders of Water Softeners
Put an End to Your Heavy Burden with Tonna Mechanical
The worst kind of dangers are those that you cannot see. For example, hypertension is often referred to as “the silent killer,” because many people don’t know that they have it; that is, until something serious happens.
On another note, hard water is the silent killer of home comfort. It slowly but surely overpowers your home, wreaking havoc on your plumbing, your appliances and your peace of mind.
A New Twist to an Old Story
Everyone knows the story of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” But, in case your memory needs refreshing, here’s a recap of the beloved tale—with some added twists.
When Goldilocks broke into the bears’ home, she was hungry and wanted some of their porridge. After passing over the porridge that was too hot and too cold, she devoured the last bowl of food, which was “just right.”
But, imagine for a moment if the dishes were smudged and smeared with a mineral deposit. Surely, Goldilocks wouldn’t have felt comfortable eating out of a dirty dish. Of course, she should’ve never broken into the bears’ home to begin with—but we’ll leave that lesson for the original version of the story.
Wanting to wash her hands, Goldilocks turned on the tap water. But, oddly enough, the water wouldn’t turn hot. Even more, the soap in her hands wouldn’t lather. At the very least, she figured that she could have a glass of cold water. But, when she took a sip, she struggled to drink the water that had a bitter, metallic taste.
After some time, Goldilocks made her way upstairs. In the original story, she lies down on the tiny bed and falls asleep. However, if Goldilocks had dressed nicely that morning and was planning to visit Grandmother’s house, she wouldn’t have slept in her delicate dress.
Let’s say, for argument’s sake, that Goldilocks decided to borrow pajamas from the bears. After putting on the tiniest gown, she immediately began to feel itchy. No matter which way she twisted and turned, each itch was simply replaced with a new one.
By this time, the three bears had returned home—and Goldilocks wasn’t going to leave without sharing her opinion of their home.
