Hard water= rings in the toilets

We have very hard water here in our new house. It is causing horrible rings in our toilets. Any ideas on how to fight these suckers? We have tankless pressurized low flow toilets so putting one of the drop in things in the tank is out. 

We are going to hopefully have a water softener installed in the fall (after we save up money for it). But until then I need to figure out something. These rings are killin me!

Thanks!

Re: Hard water= rings in the toilets

  • CLR works but it works slowly.

     

    But the best remedy I have seen (and used!) is to use a pumice stone on the stains...just like the pumice stone you would use on your feet...pumice is softer than porceline so it won't scratch toilets, and it totally worked on my disgusting, boy-infested toilet.  It takes some elbow grease, but I was so happy with the results.

    HTH

  • Hate to be the bearer of bad news but even with a water softener you will have those rings. Use the pumice stone, be ready to really work at it though and use it every two weeks to prevent build up.
  • Our water is like liquid iron. We use The Works products. They're inexpensive and available everywhere.

  • Use a pumice stone. You can buy them at the hardware store.
