Hard water is fairly common, especially in certain regions of the country. It is called hard water because of the minerals in it, such as calcium, iron and lime. Depending on how “hard” the water is, it’s usually perfectly healthy, but can cause some other problems throughout the home.
Hard water can negatively affect the durability of household appliances like dishwashers and washing machines, as well as pipes and fixtures throughout your Pasadena home. How do you know if you have hard water? Here are some common signs and symptoms to be on the lookout for:
If you notice any of these signs, or a combination of them, you may have hard water. There are certain things you can do to control the effects of hard water, such as using a commercial mineral remover to dissolve deposits left on showerheads and other fixtures. Vinegar also works well.
However, the best thing to do is to treat hard water so that it does not damage your Pasadena plumbing system. A licensed plumber can help you do this by adding a water treatment system. For more information about how to improve the water in your home, give Ace Pelizon Plumbing a call!
