The Source of Las Vegas Water
It is always a good idea to know the source of your home’s water supply. For anyone who is not familiar with the Las Vegas Valley Water District, you can learn more about where your home’s water originates. On this local site, you can also learn what flows in the Las Vegas water supply. As you will learn, the water for Las Vegas is “categorized as “very hard.”
The Problems of Hard Water
When water is declared as hard, it simply means that there is “calcium and magnesium” found in the water. These two minerals are not known to be a severe health risk, but more of a nuisance than anything. The higher amounts of the two minerals increase the degree of hardness. While hard water affects your laundry, dishes, and plumbing fixtures, there can be more worrisome effects on you and your family.
Hard Water Effects on Skin and Health
If you have hard water, you will notice that your soaps do not lather well. It is reported that hard water may affect people in different ways, as found on the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
“Dermatitis” is a possibility which can be caused by the “combination of hard water and soap.”
“Clogged pores or itching and flaking skin” are other irritating conditions that can occur due to these “minerals drying on the skin.”
“Kidney stones” are the more serious concern that is possible, and it is reported that “more than 3/4 of kidney stones are generally composed of calcium.” Calcium is reportedly one of the “environmental and nutritional factors that cause kidney stones,” along with “dehydration and a diet rich in animal proteins.”
As this article recommends, a water softener is what helps soften the Las Vegas water that flows through your pipes. Although a salt-based water softener is recommended, we believe there is a better solution to tackle the Las Vegas hard water.
Sodium-Based and Potassium-Based Water Softeners
A water system not only makes your skin feel better, but you are also protecting your home’s plumbing pipes and fixtures. You will extend the life of your plumbing system by lessening the corrosion caused by hard water.
Sodium-based salt systems can also cause corrosion in your water heater, pipes, and fixtures. If you think about how salt affects our cars and roads, it is easier to understand how salt can affect your home’s pipes. Salt systems are also not environmentally friendly, and you end up with unwanted sodium in your water and in the waste that flushes out of your home’s sewage pipes.
For anyone who must watch their sodium intake, a potassium water softening system is an alternative. Beyond potassium-based water softeners, there is another alternative that delivers superior water quality.
The nuvoH20 Water Softener System: A Healthy Alternative Using Citrus
The nuvoH20 system is an innovative solution to tackling the Las Vegas hard water issues. Because this water softening system uses citrus to remove the hard minerals, it delivers the quality water you want for your family.

We, at Village Plumbing, LLC, highly recommend this system for the quality water it produces, and it is both environmentally and user-friendly.
