Today I'm here to pass a bit of information with you all. A few days back, I hired a service provider of commercial plumbing in Toronto to repair the damaged taps and showers in our bathroom and kitchen. When I enquired about the damage, he said that it is due to hard water because the minerals exist in hard water create problems which cause the pipes and shower damaged. He also said that the presence of hard water also affects the life of the hot water tank. So he suggested that servicing the tanks once in a year to increase the lifespan of the tank. I felt like many people are not aware of this just like me, but it is something everyone should aware of. So, everyone should think about this and get the service done every year. Often you can think about water softening methods because water softening helps to remove the calcium and other minerals that make the water hard. I'm thinking about doing the same in our home as soon as possible. Hope this helped.
