Hard water is a common household plumbing problem. Hard water occurs when a home’s water gathers a high level of trace minerals like calcium and magnesium on its way through the municipal water supply system. These minerals can then affect the performance of a home’s plumbing system.
Once you suspect that hard water has become an issue for your home, you can take steps to address the issue. A reputable plumber can test for hard water, recommend and install a water softener, and correct any existing effects of hard water on the home’s plumbing system.
Unfortunately, many of the signs of hard water aren’t immediately obvious unless you know what to look for. In this blog, we list 10 invisible signs of hard water so you can notice a problem and address it before the hard water causes too much damage to your home.
