TROUBLE WITH LIME DEPOSITS IN YOUR WATER HEATER
Lime deposits are quite common in the Dumont, NJ area, and if you are a homeowner chances are you’ve had to deal with them in some form or another.

It’s harmless enough if swallowed, though it does give drinking water an odd metallic smell, and cleaning it off of your fixtures can be a pain. When it gets into your water heater, though, it can become a real problem. You need ot watch for the signs of it and get it addressed as quickly as possible.
