The Dreaded Hard Water

Homes in central Texas get their water from the Colorado River. This is considered “hard” due to the high levels of minerals present in it. Hard water is formed when water filters through deposits of limestone and it can result in valve blockages, ruined finishes, damaged seals, and sticky toilet handles. Other symptoms of hard water damage include spotty dishware, skin irritation, less efficient appliances, and damaged clothing. The good news is, local plumbers know this issue comes with the territory and they are prepared to offer relief.

What Can Be Done

The first step in addressing hard water in your home should be scheduling water testing. Our plumbers can analyze samples and diagnose the severity of your hard water problem. Sometimes, hard water mineral build-up is obvious. We can test for problems you can’t see with your own eyes. From there, they can make suggestions such as reinforcing plumbing fixtures or installing a water softener.

Many problems can hamper your appliance’s ability to perform its regeneration cycle. If you’re in doubt, don’t hesitate to reach out. Or if you prefer to speak with a real life human, call us to get all your questions answered.
