Many homeowners report frustrations with hard water problems. Hard water has a high mineral content. This happens as groundwater percolates through limestone, giving the water excessive levels of calcium and magnesium carbonates. Hard water is problematic for a plumbing system, since it leaves mineral deposits behind as it runs through the sewer and water lines.
By reducing the amount of water you use, you’ll be exposing your sewer and water lines to lower levels of mineral deposits. This can help slow down mineral buildup, which will reduce the risk of clogged drains, cracked pipes, and even plumbing backups. In addition to conserving water, you can talk to your plumber about installing a whole-house water softener. Softer water will help your appliances run more efficiently, which will also support your water conservation efforts.
