If effects your home comfort, the quality of your drinking water, and even the condition of your plumbing. If you’re looking to sidestep the effects of hard water, then you need to install a water softener.

Hard water isn’t a minor inconvenience you can work your way around. You need to consider how this is going to affect your house in the long run. Make sure that you come to us when you’re ready to take your home’s plumbing to the next level.

What’s Hard Water?

Hard water is water that has a high amount of mineral content. Here in Sugar Land, we face high amounts of calcium and magnesium in our water supply in particular. If you’ve ever experienced this, then you know that hard water might just seem like a weird occurrence at first, but it quickly becomes an issue with a tangible negative impact. We’ll get into this below…

How Does Hard Water Affect Your Home?

So how does hard water manifest in your home?

Have you seen a white scale buildup in the fixtures in your shower? Have you noticed that your plasticware, utensils, or any of the other cutlery has buildup when you take it out of the dishwasher? Has plumbing experienced low water pressure all of a sudden although there’s no clear cause? These aren’t problems you want to deal with.

Hard water is something that’s going to decrease the plumbing capacity of your home pretty quickly. This means that you’re going to end up paying more for your plumbing although you’re getting terrible service. There are solutions for this though. We can help you find a pathway that’s going to work for your home’s needs.

All About Water Softeners

Let’s talk about water softeners now!

Water softeners take out all the hard mineral content. Water softeners are a great option for any residential building in our area. Although these systems are an investment for your house, the investment is more than worthwhile. Trust us: water softeners will save you money over time.

We know that it is tempting for you to want to knock out a problem in the plumbing that you’re having with a store-bought chemical cleaner. Yes, these options are cheap and readily accessible, but this doesn’t mean that they’re a wise decision. Chemical drains cleaners do eat away at buildup in your pipes that is a result of hard water. The problem is that chemical drain cleaners don’t have any level of discernment. They’re going to eat away at the problem and have your pipe for midnight snack!

If you want to eliminate hard water while also keeping your plumbing in mind, then you need to schedule an appointment with our team members.
