How Does Hard Water Impact Your Home?
You’ve heard the term “hard water” but how does it physically manifest in the home? Some signs that you have a hard water problem and could benefit from a water softener installation include:
- Noticing brown or red stains on clothes coming out of the laundry.
- Difficulty lathering soap.
- Water that smells and tastes bad.
- Uncomfortable “raw” feeling showers and baths.
- Dry skin.
- And more!
Although these are all inconvenient problems, the most dangerous of all hard water issues is scale. Scale is a crusty deposit that builds up on your plumbing appliances, faucets, and pipes. It is the result of the minerals precipitating out of the water. Scale is dangerous because it corrodes your pipes and fixtures, leading to extreme damage and premature replacements. A whole-house water softener installation will eliminate these problems for good.

How Does a Water Softener Work?
Water softeners are a type of water filtration system. They work by using a tank filled with special salt crystals. As the water from your plumbing system passes through the tank, the sodium ions in the salt crystals bind to the minerals and grab them out of the water. The water continues its journey through your plumbing system free of any harmful minerals and safe to drink and use throughout the home.
Since these units are working in your house at all times, it’s important to make sure the salts get replenished and the unit is working properly. Any issues should be addressed to an expert right away for professional water softener repair service so you don’t have to worry about scale or any of the other issues in the home.
