Hard Water Build Up

Ever notice that your faucets and fixtures are covered up by a filmy residue?

The reason you have that cloudy finish on your faucets and fixtures is also because you may have hard water. When your water is considered hard, it’s because it has a large concentration of dissolved minerals in it. Those minerals include calcium, copper and magnesium. These are what make the milky white finish that clouds up your shiny chrome fixtures.

Hard water can not only cause health problems and the decrease the effectiveness of appliances, but it can also begin to ruin your hot water heater and deteriorate other parts of your home!

When you begin to have problems, you’ll notice some symptoms…

  • Water heater will begin to make noises.
  • There will be a significant reduction in the amount of hot water being produced.
  • You may even notice an increase in your electric/gas bill.

Here are some measures to take to further extend the life of your water heater:

  • Periodic flushing of the tank.
  • Installing a sediment filter.
  • Hand scraping the minerals from your tank using drain opening.

“When buying our house we came across some plumbing issues causing water under the house. Potentially dangerous issues with the hot water heater that even the home inspector didn't find. We called Shawn and he came right over, found the problem and got it all fixed. Very happy with the quality of work and amazing customer service from Shawn and his crew.” - Alison Clemans
