My fiance plus I both grew up with city water.
Once my buddy and I graduated school plus got married, my buddy and I rented numerous odd apartments where the cleanliness of the water was never a problem, when my buddy and I purchased our first home, my buddy and I weren’t upset about the apartment having a water well! My buddy and I were assured that there was a plentiful supply of water, however i noticed plus was satisfied that all of the plumbing fixtures were brand new, and the sinks, toilets, faucets plus even the shower surround plus tub had been recently updated… After moving in, my buddy and I rapidly realized that my buddy and I had hard water.
Our water is overrun with calcium, lime plus rust, plus it destroys everything it touches. The tub, sinks plus toilets are horribly stained. The faucets are corroded plus badly pitted. I need to use such serious cleaning chemicals that I strip the finish off every plumbing fixture. I provided up on cleaning the aerators plus just disconnected them entirely. They simply plugged with mineral deposits too rapidly. My buddy and I constantly have complaints with water pressure because the pipes, shower head plus faucet are restricted due to hard water buildup! Hard water lessens the effectiveness of detergent plus soap. It accelerates complications with soap scum that requires more scrubbing plus clogs the drains. The hard water also shortens the lifespan of the water heater plus washing machine. My buddy and I need to update our water heater about every two years. I’ve given up on having a dishwasher because the dishes plus glasses come out more spotted plus cloudy than before they were washed. Our bed linens, towels plus any pale white clothing is constantly stained from the water. I’ve even noticed that my hair is frizzy because of the water. We’ve hired numerous plumbing businesss plus invested into numerous water softeners that have been unable to handle the severity of the water hardness.
