Water Filters Reduce the Need for Frequent Repairs
Here at Hoerner Heating & Plumbing, we are constantly repairing plumbing systems that were damaged by poor quality water. Hardness from chlorine, chloramines, and iron cause significant damage to seals, pipes, gaskets and water-using appliances such as washers, radiators, fridges and more. However, unless the water quality is improved, new parts will simply break again after a few months.
Hard water also poses a range of health risks.
Poor water quality causes a lot of damage, including:
- Chlorine destroys rubber or plastic gaskets and seals, resulting in leaks. Do you notice a black residue when you run your finger over the flapper valve inside your toilet cistern? That’s a sign that chlorine is deteriorating the rubber.
- Chloramines, due to their corrosive nature, cause pitting and pinhole leaks in copper pipes.
- Iron causes reddish-brown stains in sinks and bathtubs.
Do You Need a Water Filter?
When we visit your home due to premature boiler or water heater failure, stains on laundry, tubs and sinks, damage to water-using appliances, or bad taste and odor in the water, we will do a professional inspection to look for the tell-tale signs of hard water:
- poor water pressure
- spots on glass shower doors
- mineral build-up in shower heads
Hard water scale rapidly builds up inside water pipes, water heaters, shower heads, and appliances. One of the most common signs of hard water scale build-up, occurs in the toilet shut-off valves, making it difficult to turn.
