How to Tell if You Have a Hard Water Problem

Before water is piped into your home, it is treated by the city to remove any harmful substances. Some small amounts of minerals and chemicals may be left over, but all the material that might actually be harmful is removed. However, there is another water problem that is not treated by the city. Though it is not dangerous to humans, it can cause a lot of damage to your plumbing. That problem is hard water.

Hard water is the term for any water with an above average mineral content. It is those minerals which pose a serious threat to your pipes. As the hard water flows through your plumbing, it deposits small amounts of minerals on the inner walls of the pipes. Over time, these mineral deposits can build to the point that they actually restrict or block the flow of water through the pipe. Advanced deposits of this type are called “lime scale.” Though you can’t really detect lime scale without looking inside the pipes, there are other signs that you can look for to determine if you have a hard water problem. Let’s take a look at a couple of them now.

Calcium Deposits

Lime scale is not the only way in which hard water affects the areas it flows through. Calcium deposits are mineral deposits that form on external surfaces exposed to hard water. They are a white, chalky substance that can often be found in showers and around faucet heads that are exposed to hard water. If you notice these calcium deposits in your home, it’s very likely that you have lime scale buildup in your pipes as well.

Decrease in Water Pressure

Part of what makes lime scale such a problem is that it restricts water flow through your pipes. While this is obviously a negative thing for your plumbing, at least it is something you can monitor. If you start to notice a steady decrease in water pressure when you turn on your taps or shower, you may have lime scale buildup. You should call a professional immediately to examine your pipes.

The best way to handle hard water buildup is with a water treatment system. If you’d like to know more, please call beOnd plumbing.
