Do You Have a Hard Water Problem in Your Home?

Whether you are aware or not, hard water can cause major issues for the plumbing in your home should you have it. If you are unfamiliar with what hard water is, it’s water but it is chock-full of magnesium and calcium molecules. As time passes, hard water causes lime scale. Lime scale can not only make it so that your water flow is not as substantial but it is also often hard to remove and remedy. It is important to be able to spot any damage that is being done to your faucets, bathtub, or shower early on, but how do you do that?

Look For Build Up

Take a look around your water fixtures. Do you seek a white, chalky substance surrounding them? If so, that’s lime scale. Chances are that if there is lime scale on the outside of the pipes, that it also exists on the inside of them. The best course of action would be to contact your local Denver plumber for assistance.

Pay Attention to Water Pressure

While you will not be able to step into the shower one day and all of a sudden your water pressure is entirely different, you can tell that it is changing gradually over time if you are paying attention.The earlier you notice that your water pressure has changed, however, the easier it will be for your plumber to remove the lime scale before it is too serious of a problem.
