Battling Against Hard Water? You Need a Water Softener!

May 13th, 2019

Are you struggling with hard water in your home? This can be a very irritating problem to deal with. The municipal water supply in our area is great on its own—it filters out the bad contaminants, viruses, heavy metals, and chemicals. The thing is, your municipal water supply can’t get rid of things like calcium and magnesium—the elements that contribute to hard water.

Hard water isn’t a detriment to your health, but it is a detriment to your home. Hard water wears down your plumbing and negatively impacts your comfort. If you want to rid your home of hard water and install water softener in Idaho Falls, ID then make sure that you contact our team.

Detecting Hard Water in Your Home

The problem with hard water is that you might not even realize you’re battling against it. Hard water is so pervasive here in Idaho that you might think that the symptoms of hard water are normal. We want to take the time to underscore the symptoms of hard water here.

You Have Hard Water If…

  • You have a crusty while build-up on your fixtures (your faucets, spigots, etc.)
  • You have soap scum on your glasses, dishes, or utensils
  • Your skin is often dry or itchy after bathing
  • Your hair feels dry, brittle, or you feel like it has an odd film after a shower
  • Your clothing is dull, scratchy, or worn
  • Your water has a metallic taste

It’s pretty hard to identify hard water because these symptoms masquerade as other problems. You might think that your dishes, glasses, or utensils have white spots on them because of your dishwasher or that your skin and hair are dry just because it’s winter.

If you read any of the notes above and thought that you might have hard water in your home then you probably do—more than 85% of American homes have hard water. It’s important to take note of how often these problems occur so that you can take the right next steps. But what are the next steps?

Installing a Water Softener

If you want to rid your home of hard water then the water softener is the best way to do so. A water softener is a system that replaces the minerals in your water supply (most often calcium and magnesium) with something else like sodium.

When we refer to water softeners, we’re not talking about those systems that only work for one fixture in your home, we’re talking about whole-house water softeners. A whole-house water softener is installed at the helm of your plumbing system so that you can clean all the water coming into your home.

If you want a long-lasting plumbing system with clean water then make sure that you contact our team. We can help you choose the right system for your home and install it flawlessly.

If you’re interested in installing a water softener in your home make sure that you can come to our professional team for service. Contact A Pro Plumbing Inc. today to schedule an appointment with our team—Your Satisfaction and Peace of Mind is Our Top Priority.
