For hard and soft water explained simply…Hard water contains a high concentration of dissolved minerals, like calcium and magnesium. In its pure form, water does not contain these minerals and is naturally soft. But as it passes through the ground and rocks such as limestone, it picks up those hard water minerals.

Soft water contains little to no extra elements. This can occur naturally, or soft water can be produced with water treatment equipment that removes the hard elements.

DIY plumbing can be satisfying work and certainly saves you money, but it’s not all sunshine and porcelain. Many plumbing mistakes made by amateurs can be costly in terms of water damage, safety and time wasted. Learning about these common plumbing mistakes can help you plan smarter for future projects.

Water is a significant monthly expense, especially when you lose it due to leaks. A single leak can add up to 10,000 gallons of water wasted per year. You are not only paying for the water you use, but you are continuing to pay for all of the water that is getting wasted.

Regardless of where a leak is located, small plumbing leaks can turn into larger ones and potentially cause flooding in your home. Of course flooding can ruin walls, flooring, furniture and personal belongings, so it’s best not to delay any type of repair.

Your household plumbing could house harmful bacteria that can cause health problems such as Legionnaires’ disease. Legionellosis is a respiratory disease that can lead to a very harmful kind of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease after exposure to Legionella, a type of bacteria. The Legionella Bacteria can also cause Pontiac fever, a milder case of Legionellosis that is similar to the flu. Symptoms include coughing, shortness of breath, fever, headaches and aching muscles. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, symptoms can begin two days after exposure to Legionella, but symptoms have been observed to manifest even up to two weeks later.
