Top Signs You Have Hard Water


limescale buildup on faucets

Water is essential and used daily for bathing, cooking, washing clothes, and kitchenware. However, even such an essential substance can be damaging. If your home has hard water, it may damage your clothing, dishes, and skin. Hard water is essentially an abscess amount of minerals. To combat hard water problems, a water filtration system can eliminate mineral deposits and improve your water quality. 

Gold Star Plumbing & Drain can assist you in finding adequate filtration systems for your home. Here are the top signs you have hard water in your home that warrant our water treatment services in Gilbert, AZ.

Scale on Bathroom Faucet and Sinks

Mineral accumulation around your bathroom sinks and faucets is a blatant indication of hard water. When the water is hard, a coating of minerals known as scale forms, and your kitchen or bathroom’s faucet and fixtures’ surfaces will at first have a light white covering. However, it will eventually build into a substantial coating of white residue. A water softener system can help alleviate some of the issues, especially the appearance of the limescale buildup.

Faded Clothing

Your home probably has hard water if your garments start to fade, get dingy, and look faded after every wash. As a result of detergent’s reaction with hard water’s high magnesium and calcium content, clothing fibers are damaged. For this, a reverse osmosis system is a type of filtration that can eliminate a considerable percentage of water pollutants, including visible and invisible particles.

Dry Skin

Hard water can do a number not just on your plumbing fixtures but also on your skin. Water with a high mineral composition dries out your skin and causes itching. As a result, hard water can aggravate skin conditions, particularly eczema and skin allergies. To avoid worsening skin problems, a water purification system would be best.
