Hard Water vs. Your Water Heater: Prevent Damage and Save Energy

With our region’s naturally high mineral content, Northern California’s hard water takes a major toll on water heaters. Hardness minerals rapidly accelerate limescale buildup and corrosion inside tanks and pipes, hampering performance.

NorCal Water Systems offers customized water softening solutions to eliminate the threat hard water poses to your home’s hot water system. Prevent scale deposits from forming and save significantly on energy bills and maintenance costs over time.

How Hard Water Hurts Water Heaters

As hard water is heated, calcium and magnesium minerals solidify into hard chalky deposits inside your water heater. This limescale buildup has many detrimental effects:

  • Reduces heating efficiency – acting as an insulator
  • Lessens hot water storage capacity
  • Risk of overheating and leakage
  • Voids manufacturer warranties
  • Shortens appliance lifespan by up to 50%

For tankless heaters, scale buildup impedes consistent on-demand hot water flow. Flushing and descaling only offer short-term relief before needing repeated again.
