Hard water contains a high amount of mineral deposits (common in well water) that can leave residues on surfaces and in piping. You can also use a water softening filtration system, but it won’t completely stop hard water deposits.
If you are having trouble with build-up and stains caused by hard water, your best bet is to get a kitchen sink faucet designed specifically for hard water usage. Look for a faucet that has ceramic seals in their internal workings which keep mineral residues from sticking and building up over time. Some faucets also have finishes such as Moen’s Spot Resist Stainless that are more impervious to stains that will discolor or dull them over time.
