The Effects of Hard Water in San Diego

Living in the beautiful San Diego area, you would expect the drinking water to be just as pure. What you might not realize is that our drinking water might contain harsh minerals that make the water we use hard.

What is Hard Water?

Water described as “hard” is high is dissolved minerals, specifically calcium and magnesium. Hard water isn’t a health risk, but a nuisance because of mineral buildup on fixtures and poor cleaning performance. As the water runs through soil and rocks, it dissolves very small amounts of minerals and carries them along. Calcium and magnesium are the two most common reasons for hard water and the more of these two minerals, the higher the degree of hardness is.

Symptoms of Hard Water in San Diego

– Deposits on dishes
– Metallic taste to water
– Soap scum rings on bathtub
– Worn sink fixtures
– Worn clothes
– Scale buildup in pipes

So before you go racing to the market to waste money on plastic bottles or get a stopgap fix with a carbon based water filter, invest your time and money on a home water filtration system.

By continuing to use hard, unsoftened water you may find yourself having to replace appliances and fixtures sooner than you should. The harsh minerals in the water supply wreak havoc on water lines and delicate parts in appliances like washing machines and dishwashers.

At Arnett Plumbing, we are the experts in recommending and installing a home water softening system. Either by a sodium based purifier or one using an electrical charge to separate minerals, we have many models to chose from based on usage and budget. Our installation is done fast and correctly leaving you crystal clear, safe, and delicious water.
