Warning Signs of Hard Water in Your Home

Hard water is nothing new in Murrieta homes. While it is safe to drink, it can negatively affect your plumbing fixtures and appliances due to its high mineral count. To protect them from the damage caused by hard water, A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, your reliable plumbing company, can install a water softener for your home. Here are warning signs to watch out for.

Washed Clothes Never Shines

Hard water reacts with soap to form scums deposited on your clothing after washing. Even after rinsing your clothing multiple times, you’ll be surprised to note that your clothes never shine. If you notice that your clothes look dull after washing, have an experienced plumber in Murrieta, CA, from our team test the hardness of the water in your home.

Scale Buildup and Stains

Scale or film that is difficult to remove is usually caused by hard water. Rust-colored stains on your porcelain sinks and toilet and greenish limescale on your faucets and showerheads also indicate the same problem. These red flags not only ruin your fixtures but also impair the efficiency of your plumbing system. Don’t wait for an emergency plumbing issue to occur, and seek professional assistance immediately.

Dry and Irritated Skin

Hard water is never good on your skin. Since hard water doesn’t rinse off all the soap, you will have some residue on your skin. When it dries off, it usually leaves your skin feeling taut and dry. This will ultimately worsen eczema symptoms. Besides that, you might notice the water pressure on your shower has decreased, which calls for prompt plumbing repairs.

These are the top signs to look for when you think the water supplied into your home is hard. For high-quality water filtration and plumbing services that meet your needs and budget, talk with our talented technicians at A.M. Plumbing & Rooter. Schedule an appointment today.
