Hard water is a common water-related plumbing issue in Myrtle Beach commercial and residential plumbing systems.  Hard water is water that has a higher mineral content than what is considered “soft water.”  While not necessarily a health threat, hard water may cause itchiness and dry skin after showering.  Hard water is also known to result in the premature failure of your plumbing fixtures.

Common Signs of Hard Water

If you are unsure as to whether or not your home or business has hard or soft water, here is a sampling of some tell-tale signs:

  • No lather when using soap or shampoo
  • Spots on glass shower doors
  • Foul smelling water
  • Red tinged water
  • Dry or itchy skin after bathing
  • Reduced shower head water pressure
  • Deposits on or around fixtures, clothing, and dishes/dishwashers

Hard water is an inconvenience that may unfortunately lead to greater, more frequent plumbing problems down the line, so we recommend managing the problem as soon as possible.


“Dependable Service Plumbing sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –-Bill B.
