Your home is at risk, from water supply issues too.
California residents, along with people in numerous other locations around the US, know well about what hard water can do to pipes and plumbing around the home.
There are other risks beyond hard water though, that water softeners alone, are unable to deal with.
Unfiltered Water Is A Major Risk To Your Plumbing And Your Home
Unfiltered water can cause a variety of problems for the plumbing around your entire home.
Many of these problems come from corrosion as well as the build up of deposits within the pipes themselves. Over the years, deposits build up, and what once was a good pipe, and had good flow, ceases to be so.
Much like arteries lining with cholesterol, deposits that build up in your water pipes cause major health issues for your home.
The principle issue being how water pressure is affected.
While the water pressure coming through your faucets and shower head seems low.
The actual water pressure in your water pipes can be far higher. If left for a long enough period of time, the deposits can build up to the point where water flow is seriously restricted.
Pressure builds up. Pipes burst.
When that happens, you have all the issues of getting an emergency plumber to fix the pipes.
Plus you have the water damage to your home and everything affected by the burst pipe. Pictures, furniture, books, computers, T.V.’s and everything else. Basically you are best off avoiding that situation ever happening.
The opposite can happen too, with contaminants, such as mercury, causing corrosion. Eating away at pipes and plumbing. Leading again to burst pipes when they are seriously weakened.
Unfiltered Water And The Affect It Has On The Appliances In Your Home
Dishwashers are common to most homes.
The benefits of being able to just put the dirty dishes in, then take out nice clean ones is great.
Within your dishwasher there are a lot of very fine pipes. Really narrow ones. Plus many of them have hot water flowing through them.
Heating unfiltered water, causes changes and reactions.
The contaminants present, again cause either deposits to build up within your dishwasher. Or, cause more aggressive interactions in the form of chemical reactions. Reactions which on a day to day basis may well be unnoticeable. Though over time.
More blockages. Or more corrosion. More issues with water pressure, and reliability.
In short, your dishwasher has problems.
Again these could easily be dealt with by having a whole house water filter installed.
