Water Softener Installation
Most homeowners have heard the term hard water but are unsure what it means or how concerned they should be about having hard water in their homes. To make a well-informed choice about a water softener installation, you should understand that water containing a high concentration of minerals is considered hard. When you have your water tested by the water purity experts at Paul Bunyan Plumbing And Drain, there should be fewer than 61 milligrams of calcium carbonate in each liter of water. If the number is more than 60, you should be concerned about the impact of hard water on your home’s plumbing components and your body.
The Complications Created By Hard Water
While there are no severe health concerns from consuming hard water, it does tend to dry your skin and hair. Removing the minerals from the water will be very helpful in decreasing red, itching dry skin and reducing issues related to dry and damaged hair. You will also notice that soaps clean more effectively when combined with soft water, and there is less mineral residue left on your skin and other surfaces that you are cleaning with soft water.
The most severe complication of hard water is the damage that the minerals cause to water lines and plumbing fixtures. When you notice a chalky, white buildup on faucets and showerheads, the issue is caused by the excessive minerals in the water. Even more concerning is that these minerals are building up inside the water lines and reducing the capacity of the pipes. If left unsoftened, the water will eventually leave enough mineral deposits to block the flow of water through the water lines and destroy the nozzles and other components of your water fixtures.
