The joys of having hard water

I have hard water or also known as well water.

It is really bad and contains a lot of sediment.

Due to this I deal with plumbing issues all the time. The water stains anything it touches. I couldn’t have a white shower because it would be an orangy brown within a few days. All my shower controls are a brassy color due to this. The sediment easily clogs then drains and stops water flow from the shower head and faucet. One thing that I constantly have to remove is the sink aerator. That is to restrict the steam of water. The aerator gets clogged with sediment within a month of use. I don’t even bother replacing it anymore. The hard water stains my toilet orange and causes rust on everything. The worst is my poor water heater. There is a part called an anode rod. It is supposed to stop sediment from getting into the water. That is so I can use it for drinking and safely cleaning myself. Well I have such bad water that it isn’t possible. The anode rod gets rusted and corroded within a few months. How do I know? The smell of rotten eggs is what happens when it no longer works. My husband then has to rip out the rod, dump bleach down our drains and flush it out of the pipes. Then we have a better working water heater. Athae downside of this is that the water heater then is no longer covered under warranty. There is nothing a plumber could do for us anyway though.
