Are you tired of taking cold showers because the hot water runs out too quickly?
You likely have hard water. Water is considered hard when minerals like calcium or limestone are prevalent in the water table. The best way to determine if you have hard water is if you have lime or scale buildup on your faucets (shower, sink) or if a white residue is left n the side of a pot when boiling water. This mineral buildup can shorten the life of your water heater significantly (as well as the life of your faucets).
The best way to remedy this problem is by installing a water softener. However, if that is not in the budget we highly suggest draining and flushing the system. The best way to accomplish this task is to have our trained professional do it for you so you do not risk rupturing the tank.
