Hard Water Solutions

“Hard water” refers to water that is rich in minerals, something that is common in New Mexico. While minerals may sound like a good thing, water that is full of minerals can be difficult to work with when it comes to cleaning, laundry, and even showering. Here’s a look at what hard water is, why it’s so problematic, and how Affordable Service Plumbing and Heating LLC can help!

What it is

Tap water is almost never 100% water. Trace minerals like iron, calcium, manganese and magnesium easily get into your home’s water supply.

Why it’s a Problem

While iron, calcium and magnesium aren’t necessarily bad for you, hard water sediments may contain harmful bacteria. In addition, the minerals in your water can leave stains on your plumbing fixtures and make soap ineffective. Minerals can stop up your showerhead and build up can clog your pipes. You may also notice that clothing washed in hard water is harder to get clean and wears out faster.

How Affordable Service Can Help

If your piping is clogged as a result of sediment buildup, Affordable Service can send out experienced plumbers to assess the situation and replace piping where needed. To get rid of hard water, also consider having a new water softener installed. Our team can help! So contact Affordable Service today!
