Hard water is very tough on your plumbing. 90% of homeowners that live with the burden of hard water have probably already noticed some of the effects of it. Ordinary water used in homes have minerals like calcium, lime, and iron. If there are too many of these minerals present in the water, they will build up over time. This causes your water flow to decrease and can cause other plumbing troubles such as more frequent clogging and scale deposits. The more you know about hard water and its effect on your plumbing and fixtures, the more you can do to prevent it.
Hard water can damage pipes, showerheads, faucets and appliances over time because of the buildup of lime and calcium. As time goes on these deposits can clog the pipes, faucets and appliances. In most cases, you either have to use a harsh chemical solvent to either get rid of this mineral scaling or replace the pipes and appliances completely.
Faucets that drip can leave hard water stains on your sink that are very difficult to eliminate. Hard water can also clog the inside of the faucet, causing clogs and other problems. If your pipes are prone to clogs, hard water will only increase the problem and most commercial drain cleaners have no effect on mineral buildup.
