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:


Chlorinated, earthy smell from spring run off?

During the springtime, the extra runoff can cause the water to have an earthy, musty smell mixed with the chlorinated water supply.

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

These metals, and more, can cause your water to taste bad and not be desirable for coffee, drinking and cooking.

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.

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.
