A fairly common problem for homes throughout Minnesota is hard water. Hard water contains a rich amount of minerals like calcium and magnesium, which can lead to various problems throughout the home. Signs that you have hard water include rings around tubs, red tinged water, deposits on fixtures, foul smelling water, dry or itchy skin after bathing, reduced water pressure from faucets, and spots on glass shower doors. If you suspect that you have hard water, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing is here to help.
To combat the negative effects of hard water on your skin, clothes, and home’s plumbing, we recommend installing a water softener. A water softener works to lessen the impact that hard water has on your pipes and appliances by removing the ions from the minerals, and replacing them with sodium, using salt. There are also descalers which are salt-free, and work to soften the water, while removing the buildup of mineral deposits. A member of our team can go over your water softener options and help you determine which system is right for your home.
Are you tired of dealing with dry skin and hard deposits on your faucets? The solution may be a water softener. To learn more about the benefits of water softeners, or to schedule an appointment, please contact us at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing today!
