Many of our commercial and residential customers ask us why the water quality in Orange County is so bad. The answer is that in this part of California, we have hard water. Hard water is water that has high concentrations of minerals, specifically calcium and magnesium. These minerals can cause a number of problems, including:
- sediment build-up in and on appliances, faucets and plumbing systems, causing blockages, malfunctions and leaks
- bad tasting drinking water
- laundry that feels gritty and grimy after being washed
- dry, itch skin, as well as brittle hair and nails
Improving Water Quality
If you’ve been putting up with the discomfort and inconvenience caused by hard water, then here’s the good news: you don’t have to anymore! There are a number of excellent water purification systems that can effectively improve your water quality.
- Water softening systems remove the hard minerals from the water. That means your appliances, faucets and plumbing system will have a longer life, and you won’t experience the discomfort that comes from washing in or drinking hard water.
- Water purification systems can remove chemicals and contaminants from your water, resulting in great tasting, healthy drinking water. That means you’ll never have to buy bottled water in the store again!
Consult with Your Local Plumbing Expert
Of course, you can buy small water filters that you can attach to a kitchen faucet, but these are limited to one point of use, have a low output, and need to be replaced often. The only effective solution to hard water is to have a whole house water filtration system installed. This purifies that water as it enters the plumbing system at the main and delivers it to the designated points of use.
