Hard water can be found in any home regardless of the water source. That’s why it’s important to regularly examine your home’s plumbing systems for issues. Signs that you have a hard water problem are easy to spot and thankfully, easy to address with a home water softening system.

The telltale signs of hard water:

  • Mineral-like buildup around faucets or on shower heads
  • Soap scum buildup on sinks or showers
  • Clothing that feels stiff to the touch even after laundering
  • Drinking water that has a metallic taste (this can also be a symptom of a water heater failure)
  • Rust rings around drains and fixtures
  • Spotting on dishes and glasses just out of the dishwasher
  • Dull or coarse hair after showering
  • Irritated, itchy skin or scalp

Unfortunately, some of these issues can be caused by other sources. They can also be a sign that your water has excess chlorine or metal build-up; or could be symptoms that your water heater or plumbing system is having issues. To properly diagnose the problem, you’ll need to schedule an appointment for a water test in Fredericksburg, Kerrville, Mason, or anywhere in the Hill Country.
