Hard water can be a serious problem for many homeowners. Water is determined to be “hard” when it has significant amounts of calcium, magnesium and other minerals. This is typically not harmful to consume, but it can present problems for indoor plumbing. Mineral deposits can grow on the inside of your pipes and one system that is especially prone to hard water damage is the water heater. Whether tanked or tankless, the minerals can leave extensive trails of lime scale and rock-hard deposits that can permanently damage your water heater.
There are many different types of water treatment options, from special cartridge filtration devices to reverse osmosis. It depends upon your location and your individual needs, but if you want to extend the life of your water heater or save it from contaminated water, then a household system is probably the best option. The treatment device will be attached to the main line of your water supply. The professional water treatment team at Pompeii’s in Avon Lake, OH will determine the most efficient type of treatment, whether a series of filtration devices or a reverse osmosis system. Reverse osmosis is a rapidly developing technology inspired by the natural biophysical process of osmosis, whereby water transfers across a membrane. Reverse osmosis treatment removes contaminants by trapping them on one side of this membrane, and allowing pure water to pass into your indoor plumbing to reach your water heater. Household systems like these treat water before they even reach your home. They are the most comprehensive systems.
