I never thought something as minimal as hard water would be such a pain in the neck. My house is on well water and my landlord refuses to deal with the water purifier. He tells us the water is fine, but when you look at the water purifier in the basement it says its offline. And you can tell it is the moment you do anything in the house involving the water. The water is so hard our dishes are disgusting. We have to put an additive in our dishwasher solution just to make sure the dishes come out clean. Then we have to descale our tea kettle and our coffee pot every two weeks to deal with the limescale buildup in each device.
In most houses, you would do this maybe once every couple of months, not within just weeks. Well, now our landlord is really in for it because our boiler, the central heater that controls both the heat and the hot water in the house, is giving us trouble. We called him to call for an HVAC contractor ASAP. Well, when the heating and air conditioning service provider, he was quick to spot the problem. Like everything else in the house, it’s the hard water once again.
The hard water has caused limescale to build-up in boiler, which is why it’s been so ridiculously loud lately. I’m glad its not totally broken, but this is ridiculous. If my landlord just fixed the purifier, he wouldn’t have to pay for an HVAC repair at all.
