Ever wonder what the crusty, white, and greenish stuff looks like around your shut-off valves and faucets? What about the water spots on your countertops, dishes, and shower doors. Many homeowners have lived with these water spots for years without ever giving it another thought.
Many of us believed that the city water was safe, provided you don’t consume it. Our water is not something we notice. We just go about our day without thinking about it. Long Beach plumbers will reveal that hard water is the problem. This will help you to see the ugly crusty buildup around your shut-off valves and faucets.
We want our bathrooms to be spotless for both renters and homeowners, especially our guest bathrooms. In addition, the crusty buildup can also be seen in toilets and fixtures . Then you ask yourself: “What can I do permanently to fix this problem?”
WE WANT BATHROOMS THAT WORK FOR EVERYONE
Most Long Beach Plumbers will tell you that the problem can be directly attributed to hard water minerals in the water supply, also known as “hard water deposits” We can see the hard water deposits on our countertops and faucets in the bathroom once the light is turned on.
You can check the deposits on our bathroom doors and sliders. Hard water deposits can also be seen on the faucet aerator. The small screen at the faucet’s end that screws onto the aerator is called the aerator. Aerators are designed to control the flow of water from your faucet. They will also slow down water flow by accumulating hard water deposits.
EASY, EFFECTIVE AND CHEAP SOLUTION FOR HARD WATER DEPOSITS
What is the best way to get rid of hard water deposits? A gallon of calcium and lime removal can be purchased at your local hardware store for $10-20 dollars. Let’s not spend any more money. Now it’s time for vinegar, baking soda and salt. What I have learned is that not all vinegars are equal.
A type of vinegar that is specifically made for cleaning is available. Cleaning vinegar is 6% acidity rather than 5%. This gives it a 20% increase. Cleaning vinegar is not safe for human consumption.
VINEGAR, BAKING SODA AND SALT WORKS MAGICALLY
There are two primary ways to think: one uses baking soda and one uses salt. Both receive rave reviews. Make a paste with enough baking soda or salt to cover any hard water stains. Then, add vinegar to the paste. Allow it to sit for between 20-30 minutes before wiping it clean.
Another tip is to use a plastic bag and put vinegar in it. Place your shower head or faucet aerator in the bag. Allow it to soak for at least 30 minutes. Next, use your “wife’s toothbrush to remove any mineral deposits. Moreover, you can also use the same vinegar bag to attach it to your bathtub spout and shut-off valves for the same results.
A WHOLE-HOUSE REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM IS THE BEST WAY TO WORK HARD WATER MAGIC.
There is another permanent way to remove hard water stains. This option will prevent them from ever happening. A whole-house water filtration system is the solution. Our systems are able to supply you with fresh, tasty drinking water right from your tap. Water filtration works on a simple principle. Reverse osmosis is a cost-effective and simple method to clean water.
A WHOLE-HOUSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM WILL REMOVE IMPURITIES OVERLOOKED BY CONVENTIONAL FILTER OVERLOOK
Water is moved through semipermeable membranes that filter tap water. This removes contaminants such as toxins, particles, ions and other harmful substances. Unfortunately, traditional filters often overlook small impurities and pollutants. Nonetheless, the reverse osmosis system eliminates all of them. A reverse osmosis system can remove nitrates and heavy metals as well as fluorides, sulfates and salts.
