How to Avoid Limescale Buildup

Schedule Online

You can find limescale deposits inside your plumbing system because of hard water going through them. It is easy to identify limescale deposits since they leave white stains on sinks, taps, kettles, boilers, and faucets. If you create room for them to form, they can be hard to remove and clean and even result in a clogged drain. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent limescale buildup. Zippity Split Plumbing explains more:

Install a Water Softener

If you live in an area with hard water, there is a high possibility that you will experience clogging issues. This is because of the minerals that can buildup and affect your plumbing system. The best way to remedy this issue is by asking your local expert in drain cleaning in Phoenix, AZ, to install a water softener at your home.

Water softeners use an ion exchange process to effectively remove magnesium and calcium minerals from the water, converting the water from rigid to soft water. However, if you have a water softener, you will have to schedule a regular inspection service with your drain cleaning company to make sure that it is functioning optimally.

Use Professional Limescale Removal

plumber in Phoenix, AZ uses traditional methods such as pipe descaling to clean out a clogged pipe. To prevent limescale buildup, we recommend scheduling regular drain cleaning services.

Drain the Water Heater Regularly

Draining the tank regularly can also help prevent buildup in your tank. And since limescale loves boiling water, you can opt to lower or regulate the water temperature to prevent lime from producing much magnesium and calcium deposits. Remember, high magnesium and calcium levels merge to form limescale residue that sticks on pipes and other appliances.
