For 85% of the nation, including many parts of Texas, hard water is a problem for the home’s plumbing system. You have seen its effects in your home, whether you realize it or not, as evidenced by spotty dishes, a dull film on shower doors and walls, the unsightly buildup on shower heads, faucets, and under the rim of the toilet. Other effects are not as visible, such as those that occur in appliances, especially the water heater and the blockage that can occur in the home’s plumbing in Arlington. You do not have to tolerate hard water issues, including the costs of appliance and plumbing replacement. Contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing plumbers in Arlington, Texas today for water softener installation, and an end to the problems hard water can cause.
How Hard Water is Created
Rain is naturally a weak acid that occurs from the chemical reaction between water and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. When rain falls, it seeps through the soil and rock, coming into contact with chalk, limestone and potentially other minerals where the acid dissolves the minerals forming hard water. The degree of the waters hardness will vary according to the type of rock present.
Hard water causes scale to build up in pipes and water using appliances effecting their performance, efficiency and lifespan. In addition, hard water can affect the performance of personal care and household cleaning products, such as shampoos, laundry detergent, cleaning products and others.
A water softener can stop the damaging effects of hard water. Benjamin Franklin plumbers in Arlington, Texas can provide the professional installation for you. A water softener will benefit your home in the following ways:
- Prevents the spotting of dishes
- Increases the efficiency of laundry detergent requiring less, and provides softer, brighter clothing, and towels that last longer
- Soft, shiny hair and healthier skin without the drying effects of hard water
- Prevents the reduction of appliance lifespan due to hard water effects
- Maintains the efficiency and performance of appliances
- Reduces blockage of your plumbing in Arlington due to hard water buildup
- Eliminates the dull, white buildup of hard water on shower doors and walls, tubs, showerheads, and faucets.
- Eliminates the unsightly hard water deposits under the toilet rim
Water softeners can be used in conjunction with a water filtration system. When combined they are called a water conditioning system and provide clean, clear water.
Without a water softener, appliance maintenance is required. It is especially essential for the water heater in order to ensure its efficiency, performance and lifespan.
