Poor boiler can’t handle the hard water

 

             I never imagined that something as minimal as hard water would be such a pain in the neck. My apartment is supplied by well water & our landlord refuses to deal with the water purifier! He tells us the water is fine, but when you look at the water purifier in the basement it says its offline… And you can tell it is the moment you do anything in the apartment involving the use of water…

               The water is so hard that our dishes are nasty. We have to put an additive in our dishwasher solution just to make sure the dishes come out clean. Then we have to descale our tea kettle & our coffee pot every 2 weeks to deal with the limescale buildup in each device! In most houses, you would do this maybe once every couple of weeks, not within just weeks… Well, now our landlord is entirely in for it because our boiler, the central heating system that controls both the heat & the moderate water in the house, has issues. We asked him to call for an Heating, Ventilation, & A/C supplier ASAP.

              When the heating & air conditioner service provider came, he was quick to spot the problem! Like everything else in the house, it’s the hard water once again. The hard water has caused limescale to build-up in the boiler, which is why it’s been so terribly loud lately. I’m glad its not totally broken, but this is nonsense. If our landlord just fixed the purifier, he wouldn’t have to pay for an Heating, Ventilation, & A/C repair at all.
