Common Water Issues

Hard Water

Hard water is the enemy of your plumbing system – it can clog your pipes and hot water heater, and drastically shorten the life of your appliances. Hard water is the presence of dissolved minerals in your cold water – calcium and magnesium – which cause nasty rings inside your toilets, can stain your clothes during laundry, and cause you to use much more soap and detergents. The minerals in the water form a soap scum instead of lather, and if heated, leave behind a ‘scale’ which can destroy your appliances and cost you more energy in heating your hot water.
