We get asked the same questions frequently, so we are taking some time here to answer a few of them in this blog post. If you have any other questions (or follow up questions), or need to schedule a service, just give us a call.
- Why is my toilet so noisy? The main cause of loud noise when the toilet’s tank is refilling is the water pressure. There is a valve usually under the toilet and to the left. This controls the water flow to the toilet. If it is turned up high, the tank fills fast, sometimes noisily. You can safely turn down the flow by turning the valve clockwise. Keep in mind that the lower the flow, the slower the tank will fill.
- What’s the difference between hard water and soft? Hard water is water that contains dissolved minerals—mostly calcium and magnesium—in it. Soft water is treated water in which the only ion is sodium. While hard water is the preferred drinking water, it does a number on our homes. It is the culprit behind clothes that seem a little dingy, water spots and residue on dishes that were just washed, the feel of our hair after washing it. That is why so many people in Las Vegas have water softeners.
If you have any questions, need any clarification or are ready to install a water softener in your home, give us a call! We would love to hear from you.
