I am happy with the location of my house. We have no neighbors on either side, and we’re surrounded by a large forest, hills, and small streams. Although my house is well over a hundred years old, it is modern. I’ve spent a great deal of time, money, and effort to ensure everything is perfect. I’ve completely remodeled every single room to be comfortable and beautiful. I’ve installed new windows, added insulation, updated the Heating and Air Conditioning system, and installed up-to-date light fixtures. The only thing that I can’t improve is the condition of our well water. I live with hard water and it just about ruins my satisfaction in the house. The water is so contaminated with minerals such as calcium, lime, and rust, that even a water softener can’t fix it. I’ve installed all different types of water softeners that only manage to run me out of water. Unfortunately, the hard water leaves sediment behind and causes clogs in my pipes, corrodes my fixtures, and wrecks my appliances. A water heater in my house only delivers around five years of service. I can’t even have a dishwasher because the dishes end up stained and cloudy looking. My white clothing and linens have become stained and turned a shade of orange. The hard water even bothers my family’s skin, hair and teeth. I’ve dealt with plumbers, however there’s simply no way to combat such terrible water. I am constantly repairing obstructed drains, hard water stains, clogged aerators, and leaks. The water even tastes and smells unpleasant. We never drink it, cook with it, or brush our teeth with it.
