Raleigh Plumber: Why There is Buildup on Your Fixtures

When you look at your faucet or shower drain, do you see white, yellowish, or light green sediment? Making sure you take care of any issues with your plumbing system is incredibly important to your water supply’s continued effectiveness and efficiency. What such sediment is should be determined by a professional, but it’s likely the result of what’s known as “hard” water, which contains above-average amounts of calcium and magnesium. In today’s post, we’d like to address the problems that hard water poses to your home and some ways you can address it. Call JD Service Now for all your Raleigh, NC, plumbing repair needs. We can ensure that your plumbing system meets your expectations, whatever the problem.

As we already mentioned, the buildup on your fixtures is likely caused by mineral deposits left behind by hard water. Still, because this is not an unusual problem (the majority of homes in the US have hard water), there are several steps you can take to make sure that it does not adversely affect your plumbing system. As it passes through your supply and wastewater piping, hard water leaves behind small amounts of calcium and magnesium bi-carbonate and other trace minerals. This does not only impact your bathroom and kitchen sink cleaning duties, however. It can also pose a risk to your pipes’ interior surfaces, which can accumulate mineral deposits over time. In severe cases, this can lead to low water pressure, inadequate water supply, and eventually whole-house repiping.

The solution to your hard water issue may be found in various water treatment systems. There are numerous system types and brands on the market today, so make sure you consult with a professional when selecting one for your home. The type you choose will largely depend upon your target, be it mineral deposits alone or other contaminants. At JD Service Now, we offer descalers, reverse osmosis systems, and filters that can reduce the risk that hard water poses in your home. Call us today for all of your Raleigh, NC, plumbing repairs.
