How is it diagnosed and treated?
If you are concerned about the hard water skin rash, consult your family physician for diagnosis and treatment.
Washing in hard water makes it more difficult to thoroughly rinse soap and minerals off your skin.
The following are tips to soothe your symptoms:
- Rinse skin carefully.
- Use a water softener
- Use moisturizing shower products.
- Thoroughly rinse soap of your body.
- Soften your pool water removing calcium and chemicals.
How effective is reverse osmosis?
Rob's Pool Water Recycling's water recycling equipment utilizes the latest reverse osmosis technology. Moreover, we have utilized our 10 years' knowledge about local water quality and optimium chemical levels, and further added specially built filters and sanitization devices.
The result: drinking quality, pure water.
Pool water causing dry skin, worsening psoriasis and eczema
Dry skin is one of the most common problems of prolonged exposure of hard water. When the water comes in contact with a person's skin, a small portion of the minerals are left behind. These deposits can leach the moisture and natural oils from the skin.
People with sensitive skin or skin conditions will also often have problems when they are exposed to hard water. Psoriasis and eczema sufferers, for instance, will often experience more dryness and irritation after being exposed to hard water.
If hard water is the cause of frequent skin problems, avoiding the offending water is often necessary to help clear the skin up.
This is quite simple to fix with our Reverse Osmosis Pool Water Filtration service. In 12-24 hours your pool water can be completely softened without having to drain it or adding lots of chemicals to it.
