You may have a general idea what “hard water” is, but not know if it’s something that affects your home. Hard water is any water with a high amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium. Water that has 120 milligrams per liter of these minerals is considered to be hard. Unfortunately, this level of concentration is common for the water supply in many parts of Las Vegas. The minerals from the groundwater seep into the freshwater pipes on their way to homes, which makes it difficult to remove excess minerals from the municipal water.
The best way to counteract troubles with hard water is to have a water softener installed onto the water main for your house. You can have our plumbers in North Las Vegas, NV handle this service, as well as future repairs and maintenance to keep the water softener working for you.
But first, you have to know you have hard water! We can help you diagnose hard water problems in your house with a list of warning signs.
