In certain areas of the country, including the Salt Lake City area, natural water sources can contain an overabundance of minerals. This type of water is known as “hard water,” and is created when water filters through underground geological deposits like chalk or limestone. While this kind of water provides potentially beneficial minerals for your health, it can wreak havoc on your home’s plumbing, appliances, and other fixtures. Here at Friendly Plumber, we are experienced in Salt Lake City water quality testing and analysis, and we can help you preserve the life and value of your home!

One of the biggest risks of running hard water through your home’s system, is the buildup of scale on the inside of pipes. You can see scale form around your shower heads, faucets, dishwashers, and tubs, and this can be an indication that your plumbing may be at risk. Our team can provide Salt Lake City water quality testing and analysis to help you fully understand the situation. Scale buildup reduces efficiency by blocking the free flow of water, decreasing water pressure, and making it harder for your appliances like hot water heaters to do their job. Hard water can also reduce the effectiveness of your laundry and dish soaps, and leave your hair looking dull even after a shower.
