If your water supply has a high mineral content, usually iron, calcium, or magnesium, you have hard water. While, unless it is very high in iron, you're unlikely to notice a difference in the taste of your drinking water, hard water is—excuse the pun—hard on your plumbing system. It can lead to mineral build-up that will damage your pipes and appliances over time.
If you suspect you have hard water, at Oak Plumbing, we’re here to help. We offer reliable whole house water softener systems in Benicia, CA, at competitive prices.

How Do You Know if You Have Hard Water?
As mentioned, your water might taste normal, but you’re likely to notice a few of the following signs if you have hard water:
- Stains: You may see discoloration in your toilets, sinks, or showers. It’s also common to experience spotting on dishes after washing. They will be more obvious if you allow your dishes to air dry rather than using the heat cycle on your dishwasher (if you have one).
- Unusual odors: Water with high mineral content often smells a bit different, though the exact smell varies based on the water’s composition. For example, water high in magnesium tends to smell like rotten eggs.
- Low water pressure: As the minerals build up in your pipes and fixtures, it will limit the water flow.
- Poor clothes washer performance: Hard water makes it harder for soap to do its job, so you may notice that your clothes don’t get clean with a single cycle. Your dishwasher might also struggle to work efficiently.
