answer to this question is, “yes it is.” However, we understand that you
deserve a bit more of an explanation than that!
The thing is,
scaling is a very misunderstood problem among homeowners. It is the result of
hard water—that is, water with a high level of minerals in it. These minerals
include calcium, magnesium, and sometimes iron.
At this point
you might be thinking, “but wait, those minerals are harmless!” And that is
true, partially. These minerals are completely harmless for you to ingest.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for your plumbing system. What happens is
that the minerals leave behind deposits in your pipes. The deposits build up,
creating clogs and other problems. Plus, they can settle in your water heater.

dealing with scaling yourself.
