My hubby as well as I both grew up with city water, once my friend and I graduated college as well as got married, my friend and I rented various odd apartments where the cleanliness of the water was never a problem… When my friend and I bought our first home, my friend and I weren’t sad about the household having a water well, however my buddy and I were assured that there was a plentiful supply of water, i noticed as well as was satisfied that all of the plumbing fixtures were brand new, however the sinks, toilets, faucets as well as even the shower surround as well as tub had been recently replaced! After moving in, my friend and I abruptly realized that my friend and I had difficult water.
Our water is overrun with calcium, lime as well as rust, as well as it destroys everything it touches.
The tub, sinks as well as toilets are horribly stained. The faucets are corroded as well as badly pitted. I need to use such drastic cleaning chemicals that I strip the finish off every plumbing fixture. I gave up on cleaning the aerators as well as just removed them entirely. They simply plugged with mineral deposits too abruptly. My buddy and I consistently have complaints with water pressure because the pipes, shower head as well as faucet are restricted due to difficult water buildup, but hard water lessens the effectiveness of detergent as well as soap. It accelerates issues with soap scum that requires more scrubbing as well as clogs the drains. The difficult water also shortens the lifespan of the water heating system as well as washing machine. My buddy and I need to replace our water heating system about every two years. I’ve given up on having a dishwasher because the dishes as well as glasses come out more spotted as well as cloudy than before they were washed. Our bed linens, towels as well as any white clothing is consistently stained from the water. I’ve even noticed that my hair is frizzy because of the water. We’ve hired various plumbing companys as well as invested into several water softeners that have been unable to handle the severity of the water hardness.
