How a Water Filtration System can Protect Your Pipes

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

A lot of people have heard of hard water, and how it’s bad for you and for your pipes. There are tons of commercials across the airwaves that advertise products that can remove the visual effects of hard water on your faucets and in your shower. However, fewer people are aware of what hard water actually is, and the negative ways that it can affect your home. Let’s take a look at the problem of hard water, as well as a much more effective solution for it: water filtration.

What is Hard Water?

Hard water is the name for any water with an above-average mineral content. Though most municipalities filter dangerous minerals and chemicals from water before distribution, large amounts of other minerals can still make it all the way to your house. As hard water flows through your pipes, it deposits small amounts of its minerals on their inner walls. Over time, these mineral deposits can build up to the point where they actually restrict or completely block the flow of water. This material is commonly referred to as “lime scale.” Obviously, blocked pipes can present a huge problem for homeowners, which is why so many hard water treatment solutions exist. Hard water is largely affected by geographical location, and is common throughout the mid and southwestern United States.

What is Water Filtration?

Water filtration covers a wide variety of water purification systems, each designed to remove different contaminants from the water flowing into your home. There are smaller filtration systems that can purify the water flowing through a single point, like a kitchen faucet. However, areas with a hard water problem are often better served by whole house filtration systems. These larger water filters are installed in the home’s main water line, allowing them to purify all water flowing into the home. Certain water filters are specialized to remove the minerals in hard water, softening it and protecting your pipes from damaging effects like lime scale.
