Do you need a water softener?
Are your bathroom fixtures discoloured? An orange or pink discolouration on your bathroom fixtures is a good indication your water contains too much iron/calcium.
If you’re seeing this on the outside of your plumbing fixtures, imagine what the insides look like…
– Over time, this accumulation builds up until it actually narrows the opening of the pipes and reduces the amount of water that can move through the pipes.
– It won’t clog the pipe completely, but it could reduce your water pressure.
– Your water heater is another element affected – it can cause it to corrode which can cause your water heater to fail.
In addition to plumbing issues, hard water can shorten the lifespan of your clothing and cause dryness to your skin and hair.
