What Are You Doing to Treat Your Water?

November 20th, 2017

And if you use ground water, you probably have your own water treatment system on site. But something many homeowners don’t realize is missing from their homes is protection from hard water, which the right Pacific Beach, CA water treatment system will resolve.

Hard water describes water which has a high concentration of minerals in it, namely calcium and magnesium. These minerals are not harmful to ingest, but can do a world of damage to your plumbing system. Hard water should be managed with a water softener as it enters the home, before it gets a chance to reach your pipes. Keep reading for signs that you’re being impacted by hard water.

Water heaters are probably one of the most forgotten about plumbing fixtures in a home, and yet they are a staple in any home. They provide heated water safely and effectively as easily as turning on a tap. They are typically out of sight—located in quiet corners of the house like the basement where nobody visits often, and they do their jobs pretty silently.

There’s a downside, however, to this quiet operation. When problems do arise they don’t always attract attention, and they can spread until they’re fairly extensive. In many cases, what could be a simple repair job becomes an unplanned replacement, driving up the costs and adding time as well as expense to the operation.
