 Orlando Homeowners Should Give An Attention Of Having A Poor Plumbing

Water Softener

There are a number of ways to improve the comfort and health of your home, but one system that many people put off for one reason or another is the installation of a water softener. Is it because hard water problems can be a real hassle, especially for new homeowners who may be unfamiliar with the issues it causes. Solving those problems can vastly improve your family’s quality of life and get things back to normal again.

You may have heard that over 85% of people in the United States have hard water, but you might not realize exactly what the big deal is. It’s likely many of your friends and neighbors have asked their plumber to install a water softener, and with good cause. Hard water has linked with many conditions, ailments and home problems that might surprise you! How can hard water and poor plumbing harm you?

Unhealthy Hair and Skin

Having hard water means soap doesn’t wash completely off the skin when showering. This ‘soap scum’ clogs pores, and may cause acne in both teens and adults. As is the case with acne, excess film from soap can dry and irritate skin, as can minerals such as calcium. This leads to conditions like eczema. Lastly, hard water makes hair dull and lifeless, and can contribute to excess hair loss.

Poor Plumbing

When pipes clog due to hard minerals, water flow reduces and this build-up can lead to backflow, encourage the growth of bacteria and end up harming your family. What’s more, it’s a safe bet your family prefers to spend money on things other than fixing plumbing. Hard water means your water heater will need replacing sooner than normal, and your utility bills will increase, as the water heater must work harder and harder to bring water to temperature.

Ruined Clothing

The minerals in hard water cause washed clothing to appear gray and dingy, ultimately wearing out quickly.

Health Risks

New research shows hard water may lead to a number of health concerns caused by dissolved hard metals.

If you want to be safe, rather than sorry, it’s time to get your plumbing checked for hard water. Ask your local plumbing expert about installing a water softener today, and keep you and your family safe from poor plumbing and hard water!
