If you are a resident of Fort Worth, TX, you are probably already familiar with the signs of hard water, although you might not know the reason. Hard water is a term used to describe a buildup of minerals such as magnesium and calcium in the water supply. You can tell that you have hard water if you have:
- Rusty toilet bowls, sinks, showers, drains
- Bad tasting water
- Water spots on dishes and silverware
- A buildup of a white powdery-looking substance (lime) on your showerhead or other fixtures
If you have noticed these signs of hard water in your home, you might want to consider installing a water softener. Installing a water softener can:
Get Rid of Bad Tasting Water
Installing a water softener can make your water smell and taste fresh. With soft water running from your taps, you wouldn’t have to buy bottled water just to have a fresh drink.
Improve Skin and Hair Feel
Another common effect of hard water is having dry, coarse hair and itchy dry skin, especially after you shower. You might also notice a foul or metallic odor coming from the water in your shower or bathroom sink.
Improve Longevity of Appliances
Mineral buildup on the showerhead, faucets, and drains can damage and wear to the appliances, causing you to need regular replacements. Installing a water softener could save you money by increasing the lifespan of your appliances.
Get Dishes Looking Cleaner
With soft water running through your dishwasher, you can get rid of those water spots on your freshly cleaned dishes. Your dishes will look spotless and require less detergent to come clean.
