Plumbing Solutions for Hard Water
Tap water containing extreme levels of minerals like calcium is sometimes known as hard water. Hard water can cause problems with home appliances like water heaters, dishwashers, toilets, and faucets. If you have hard water, you’ve probably noticed water spots on plumbing fixtures or light-colored crusty deposits on the spouts of your faucets. When hard water is left untreated it can meddle with water pressure or cause plumbing fixtures to leak prematurely or hinder their performance.
The most common, and most effective, way to treat hard water problems is with a water softener.
Water softeners remove minerals from your water before it makes its way to your plumbing fixtures, effectively eliminating many of the problems caused by a mineral rich water supply.
If you already have a softener, but it still doesn’t seem to be doing the job, it could be that it is undersized, not set correctly, you’re not keeping salt in it consistently, or it is malfunctioning and needs repair or replacement.
