Whether it’s for drinking or for everyday household tasks, water is an integral part of our lives. Yet, there are many problems that can arise when trying to get and maintain the best water for you and your family. Here, we look at smart solutions for common home water problems.
1. Hard water
If you live in California or Arizona, you’re likely familiar with this common water problem, and it’s prevalent in other areas of the country as well. Left untreated, hard water can cause discoloration of fixtures and appliances, dull hair and skin issues, and spotting on dishes, among other problems. The easiest way to resolve hard water plumbing issues is to install a water softener. Water softeners in Phoenix and other major cities are becoming increasingly popular for their benefits. Since every home is different and every family has different needs, it’s important to talk to one of our experts to find out the best fit for your situation.
2. Rust stains and iron
If you see orange colored stains on washed clothing, or rusty residue on fixtures such as sinks, toilets, and baths, your water likely has a high iron content. This not only affects the appearance of whatever it touches but can also cause permanent damage to water-using appliances such as dishwashers. Solve this nuisance by installing a whole house water conditioner which helps to reduce heavy metals and protect appliances.
3. Bad tasting or smelling water
There’s nothing pleasant about pouring a glass of water, expecting a clean and refreshing drink, and being turned off by the taste or foul smell. Since this can be caused by many different sources, it’s important to have a professional water test done to determine the root of the problem. An easy fix in most cases of this rotten egg smell is the purchase and installation of a Reverse Osmosis drinking water system, leaving you with great tasting water that is safe to drink and free of contaminants.
4. Local water regulation
If you live in an area with a water softener ban, yet you have hard water or another water problem listed above, a smart alternative to a softener is our Portable Exchange (PE) Tank Service. Our plumbing technicians simply bring tanks of softened water to your home at predetermined intervals with no maintenance, materials, or electricity needed.
