Common Water Problems We Resolve
What is Hard Water?
Hard water is water that is high in minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Over time, it can cause damage to pipes, plumbing lines, and appliances. It also prevents soap and detergents from lathering, causing you to use more than you should and leaving you with dry skin and hair. Hard water can be a problem with both public and well water, and can vary by geographic region. Contact us for a free water analysis to see if a water conditioner system would work for you.
Why Does My Water Taste Bad?
Depending on whether you get your drinking water from a well or from a municipal water supply, the contaminants causing the bad taste may be different. City water is often treated with chlorine to make it safe, but it can leave a chemical taste behind. With well water, the culprit is often bacteria or algae. If your water has a metallic taste, then metals from various plumbing pipes may be leaking into your water or the natural levels of copper and iron may be high in your area. If you want better tasting water, let our experts recommend a solution!
What Causes Rust Stains?
Rust stains on your toilet or bathtub are annoying and unsightly, but what causes them? In many cases, the staining is caused by the iron concentration in your water. When the iron in the water reacts with oxygen, it created iron oxide leaving those ugly brownish stains behind. Another cause may be your water’s pH level, which can cause corrosion in the pipes and stain your fixtures. If your stains are darker in color, then the manganese might be villain. Let us diagnose the problem and recommend the best system for your home.
Why Does My Water Smell Bad?
Bad smells can come from one of two sources: your plumbing system or your water supply. Typically if the odor dissipates after running the water for a bit, then the source is within some portion of your plumbing system. If the odor remains, then the odor may be from the water itself. If your water smells like rotten eggs, then a certain type of bacteria may be present causing a chemical change that naturally emits the odor. If your water smells musty or moldy, then algae, fungi or other bacteria might be the reason. The good news is that we have a solution!
What is Corrosive Water?
Corrosive or aggressive water can cause the breakdown of materials in which it comes in contact with over time. This is generally a problem in older homes where galvanized pipes are still part of the plumbing system, but since copper pipes can also break down, newer homes can also have this issue. Corrosive water can be caused by a misaligned pH or by its chemical makeup, but in most cases it can be corrected. If you suspect you have corrosive water, schedule your consultation today!
Why is My Water Cloudy?
If the water coming from your tap is cloudy, you may have issues with hard water (see above), have a high concentration of TSS, or methane gas can be present. If you have a high concentration of TSS, or total suspended solids, small particles of silt, clay, sediment, etc. are in your drinking water. While methane occurs naturally in well water, too much of it can be an issue. The best way to determine what is causing the issue is to have your water professionally tested, so the appropriate solution can be implemented. Call us today!
