Ready to Get Rid of Hard Water? We Have The Solution

Are you tired of rust stains ruining the appearance of your sinks, toilets, or bathtubs? Do you need to replace appliances like dishwashers and water heaters more often because of water issues? Fortunately, there’s a solution to help you address hard water issues at your Tampa home.

What Causes These Types of Water Issues

When you think of hardened water, what comes to mind? Most people don’t understand what makes their water hard or why it’s a problem. Here’s what you need to know about this situation.

Water with a lot of calcium, magnesium, and other dissolved minerals is considered hard. While excess minerals in the water don’t make it harmful to drink, bathe in or cook with, it does a number on your plumbing system. Not only does it clog pipes and cause corrosion, but it has a substantial effect on the efficiency of your appliances. Many people don’t realize that their water’s affecting their appliances’ lifespans and costing them money.

How to Fix Water Issues

If your water’s very hard, consider installing a water softener. A softener gets installed where the main water line enters the house. Installing it in this area means it treats all water that comes into the house before it’s distributed throughout the plumbing system.

When shopping for softeners, you have two options, a salt-based softener or an electrical softener. Here’s a quick overview of how these systems work:

  • Salt-based softeners: The system uses resin beads to attract the minerals in the water. Once the minerals get “captured” by the system, they’re exchanged with salt to soften the water. These softeners are budget-friendly and work well, but they do require maintenance. As the salt pellets get used up, you must replace them.
  • Electric softeners: These so-called softeners don’t really soften the water. Instead, they condition using nanotechnology to manipulate molecules. Minerals like calcium and magnesium lose their electrostatic charge when electronic frequencies get emitted from the conditioner.

Don’t let hard water damage your plumbing. Call Gulfshore Plumbers today to learn how water softeners, conditioners, and filtration devices can make your water better.
