4 Plumbing Problems That May Not Look Like Emergencies, But Are

Monday, March 1st, 2021

Ways You Can Tell Your House Has Hard Water

Monday, February 15th, 2021

salt-based-water-softenerHard water is a common problem affecting residential water supplies. Even the best water treatment plants can’t prevent it, since most hard water minerals enter the water after it has left the treatment plant and is on its way toward homes. The minerals of hard water (primarily magnesium and various calcites) seep through the ground and into the freshwater pipes.

Hard water isn’t unhealthy to drink. In fact, you want some amount of these minerals in your water because they’re essential minerals for good health. But too high a level of these minerals is bad for the plumbing in a house and creates inconveniences with cleaning and bathing. It can even wreck important water-using appliances; the water heater is especially susceptible to damage due to hard water.

rusty-water-heater-old-houseYou probably know that the water heater in your house won’t last forever. But because the average water heater that receives regular maintenance can sometimes last for over two decades, it’s easy to slip into thinking that it’ll always be working for you and you won’t have to worry about it. 

Then one day you notice rust on the water heater, or a rusty discoloration appears in the hot water. Alarm bells go off in your head. Rust can’t be a good sign. In fact, it might mean the water heater is finished and it’s time to have a new one installed. 

But is this 100% true? Is a water heater with corrosion a water heater destined for the recycling yard?
