Dirty calcified shower mixer tap, faucet with limescale on it, plaque from water. Chrome-plated shower, close-up photo.Hard water is a common complaint in Carbon County. It makes it difficult to feel clean after washing your hands or showering. It also tends to leave a white film on dishes and glasses and unsightly stains on your fixtures.

Hard water, over time, can also negatively impact your pipes and water heater, causing damage and blockages.

If you have these problems, call Andreas Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. We install water softener systems that help break down the minerals that make up hard water, such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium.

What Causes Hard Water?

Minerals, especially calcium and magnesium, can build up in the water supply. These minerals change the water, making it difficult for it to properly scrub away dirt and grime from your hands or dishes, and leave stains on your fixtures.

Water softeners filter out the minerals, providing soft, clean water. A water softening system can be attached to your main water line to eliminate hard water.

How To Know You Have a Hard Water Problem

Hard water tends to show itself in various noticeable ways.

You may have a hard water problem at your home if:

  • Soap doesn’t lather well: The minerals in hard water prevent soap from getting a good lather.
  • Dry skin: Hard water can cause soap residue to stick to your body and not wash off, causing dry and itchy skin.
  • Limescale on your fixtures: This looks like a whitish scale and will often cover your faucets, showerhead, and shower knob.
  • Faded laundry: Mineral buildup can cause your clothes to fade quickly.
  • Lower water pressure: Hard water can cause minerals to collect and blockages in your pipes.

A professional plumber can inspect your water system, run tests, and determine if you have hard water.
