The Hard Facts of Hard Water


Hard water is a common problem home owners face. Hard water can cause a buildup of calcium, magnesium, iron and other minerals in your home's water system such as the water heater and around faucets and sinks. Not only is this buildup a hassle to clean out of tubs and sinks, but it also may damage heating components of your water heater over time. The most common solution for this is to install a water softener to help reduce the hard mineral content of the water. If you have some of these common symptoms in your home you may have hard water: soap scum buildup on sinks and tubs, mineral buildup on faucets and water fixtures, water heater elements fail often, spots on dishes, glasses and flatware, orange stains in tubs, sinks, and toilets.
