If you have lived in the state of Florida or you live there now you know the water can be a big problem. Of all 50 US states Florida may have the worst water. No other state can make a claim to this rubric.

Pinellas County, Florida is no exception to this state of affairs. Its water contains a lot of extra minerals and therefore it is said to have “hard water’. Unfortunately, these bad minerals cause a buildup of what is known as limescale. Limescale is not your friend. It causes corrosion and buildup on your appliances. This is a very bad thing!

The result of this limescale buildup makes Florida water smell pretty bad and it does not taste good either. In addition, the water contains chlorine, and most of us know that chlorine stinks. It also does horrible things to a person’s skin. It sucks all the moisture from hair and skin and leaves them both in terribly dry condition. Who wants that?

So how do those living in Florida and in particular Pinellas County escape from this awful fate? They turn to their local plumbing company for relief. To begin with, you might need to get a new water heater so you start from scratch with no buildup or you will need a water heater repair in Clearwater, FL. By using specific filters and water filtration systems you will be able to have happy normal water.
