7 Ways To Tell If You Need Water Treatment Services
- Discoloration of your sinks, showers, and clothing
Hard water is full of chemicals like iron that can leave behind a nasty stain. While you can clean out the stains with a combination of baking soda and vinegar, the stains will reappear until you install a water softener.
- Leaks in copper piping
Hard water can take a toll on any plumbing appliance, but copper piping is especially prone to this and if you have copper pipes you should consult our experts in water treatment services.
- Interference with the cleaning power of soaps and detergents
If you’re noticing that your washing machine or dishwasher just aren’t getting the job done, then it’s possible your hard water isn’t combining with soap well. Look out for spots or streaks on your dishes or clothing. You may need to install a water softener.
- Scale buildup in hot water pipes, hot water heaters, and other fixtures
The high levels of calcium or magnesium can build up in your water heater for example and make snapping or popping sounds. While you’ll need to clean out your water heater, this problem will persist until your consult our water treatment experts.
- Low water pressure
One thing about hard water is that it’s heavier than normal water as it has an increased amount of minerals. Since it’s heavier, it might move a lot more slowly out of your sink faucet or showerhead.
- Your water tastes off
We all know what purified clean water tastes like, trust your instincts on this one. If something tastes a little bit off it can’t hurt to have our experts in water filter installation in for an opinion.
- Your skin is irritated by your water
Another place to look out for the impact of hard water is on your skin. If you’re noticing any rashes or leftover residue on your skin after washing your hands then give our water treatment specialists a call.
