How can hard water affect your faucet?
Hard water can create long term problems if left untreated. It will not just affect the taste of your drinking water. It can also affect the efficiency of your dishwasher or laundry machine, resulting in spotty glassware and dull clothing. However, perhaps the largest concern regarding hard water is how it affects the quality of your faucet and plumbing pipes.
Although the spots may start off barely noticeable, you will soon see a gradual buildup of limescale on your faucet. That white, chalky substance you see on your faucet is also building up in your pipes. This can lead to reduced water pressure if left untreated. If the limescale problem is severe enough, you may need to replace your faucets and fixtures—after installing a new water softener system as well.
What other times should you consider replacement?
As a practical homeowner, you want to make sure your household items last as long as possible. This includes kitchen faucets.
