Emergency plumbing issues caused by hard water


Living in the Stoke-on-Trent area brings with it a number of challenges, one of which is hard water. Hard water can wreak havoc on plumbing systems and cause costly damage if not addressed quickly. As an emergency plumber we often see the effects of hard water in our customers’ homes, from blocked pipes to corroded fixtures.

The most common problems that arise from hard water are clogged drains, damaged pipes, and corrosion. Clogged drains occur when limescale builds up inside pipes over time and restricts flow. This buildup can be accelerated by higher temperatures or turbulence in the home’s plumbing system; this is why hot water taps often get blocked first as they experience much higher temperatures than other fixtures. Damaged pipes are a result of the minerals in hard water corroding metal pipes, and over time this can cause leaks or bursts.

These plumbing emergencies can be prevented with regular maintenance from an experienced emergency plumber, such as our team at Stoke Plumber. We can inspect your home’s plumbing system for signs of wear and tear, enabling us to identify any potential issues before they become major problems.
