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.


“Senior technician, Joe Anderson, made plumbing repairs to an upstairs bathtub to seal leaks from flooding through kitchen ceiling downstairs. This has been an ongoing serious daily problem in this apartment since April 2015. Mr. Anderson was the first person to have a camera system with him to assess areas where water was accessing kitchen ceiling. He explained in detail what he did and what he found wrong. Water had been flowing from next door apartment whenever they used their shower for over a year now. Mr. Anderson stated he needed to get permission from apartment management office in order to proceed to correct issues in next door apartment. Management has not allowed that access yet. He also noted that a single shower curtain in the apartment next door was on the outside of that tub and felt that could be creating some of the flooding issues. Thank you Mr. Anderson for being my angel and making these repairs.” –-Lyda G.
