Common Water Problems

Are you Experiencing Any of These Common Water Problems?

How clean is your water?

A variety of factors can affect how water tastes, smells and feels. To ensure you receive an option most suited to your needs, we test your water before recommending how to best treat it. Here are a few of the problems we commonly see and fix:

 

Musty, earthy, fishy taste or smell?

Caused by algae, molds and bacteria that live in water and can multiply within a home’s plumbing system.

Cloudy water

Raw water comes into your home with any number of impurities that cause turbidity.

 

Hard water

Hard water dries out skin and makes hair brittle. It causes soap scum in tubs and showers and spots on faucets and fixtures. It also causes scaling in appliances such as hot water tanks, dishwashers and washing machines, which results in less efficiency and costly repairs.

Iron and manganese

Iron and manganese can leave rust stains on clothing, appliances and fixtures. What’s more, these metals can make your water taste and smell bad.

 

Rotten egg smell or smelly water

There are multiple reasons your water may be stinky! Most commonly in our area, iron bacteria is the cause. It can not only make your water smell, but also stain anything from your bathtub and toilet to your hair and clothing.

Chlorine taste or smell

The taste and smell of chlorine are unappealing and can also dry out your skin and hair and fade your towels and clothes during washing. While municipalities use chlorine to disinfect the water supply, it should be filtered out before you use it to eliminate these effects.

 

Gas issues

High gas levels can lead to a foul smell, bubbles in the water and can be dangerous in your home. We’ve even seen customers light their own water on fire!

Phantom signs, nothing specific but something’s not right

In many cases, especially with city water, there may not be any obvious signs of a water problem. However, poorly treated water can cause other side effects that can impact your wellbeing. Some common complaints include skin issues and digestive discomfort.

Water is something that your body uses and needs every day, so make sure it’s treating you well. Let us test your water—request a free demonstration today!
