Do I Have Hard Water?

Water Quality Technicians in Ventura County

Hard water includes any water with a high mineral count. This is in contrast to soft water, which has a low mineral count. Hard water is often the result of groundwater flowing through limestone and being distributed by the water supply system in your city. Although hard water is largely harmless, it doesn’t taste as good as soft water, and you are likely to notice it if starts to come out of the pipes, faucets, and drains in your home. Learn more about hard water here, and contact our Ventura County plumbers at Dutton Plumbing for water quality expertise you can trust.

Signs You Have Hard Water May Include:

  • Scale Buildup: You will notice signs of scale buildup around your pipes by its whitish color, and the fact that it is hard to scrub away. Scale buildup can be found on various water-related appliances in your home, including your dishwasher, washing machine, or shower head. Scale buildup is not good for these appliances and may wear down their quality over time.
  • Bad Soap: The calcium and magnesium in hard water can turn your soap into soap scum and prevent it from lathering properly. As hard water breaks down your soap, you will notice it becoming less effective, and sticking to showers and dishes. Occasionally, the minerals that cling to soap scum will irritate your body, too, prompting itching or irritation on your skin, and even taking volume and shape out of your hair. You may also notice colors fading or towels becoming less soft, as hard water also prevents soap from being as effective on fabric.
  • Rust: Although some rust stains are common in kitchens, bathrooms, and anywhere else where water is used, hard water is especially bad for porcelain. Large rust stains on toilets, in showers and tubs, and around sinks are a major sign of hard water.

Again, while there are worse things for your health and your home than hard water, it can still be a major irritant on your pipes, your appliances, and even your skin. And, as we previously discussed, it doesn’t taste good either.

At Dutton, your water is our business.
