What's your water problem?
There are a number of common water problems and concerns. While the touch, taste, or smell of water are indicators of a problem, many water contaminants can simply go undetected.
"Rotten egg" smell
The presence of hydrogen sulfide in water gives it an unpleasant smell, sometimes even rendering it unusable.
Raw water comes into your home with any number of impurities that cause turbidity.
Chlorine taste or smell
Municipalities use chlorine to disinfect water. However, not only does it taste and smell unappealing, but it also has a drying effect on skin and hair.
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.
Metallic taste or smell
Generally caused by metals such as iron and manganese, these substances not only taste and smell bad but can also be harmful to your health.
Calcium and magnesium ions in water create hardness, which is what causes soap scum in tubs and showers and spots on faucets and fixtures. Hard water is also what causes scaling in appliances, which results in less efficiency and costly repairs.
