Common Water Problems
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.
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, 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
Hydrogen sulfide can give your water an unpleasant taste and smell, sometimes even rendering it unusable.
Chlorine taste or smell
The taste and smell of chlorine are unappealing and can also dry out your skin and hair. While municipalities use chlorine to disinfect the water supply, it should be filtered out before you use it to eliminate these effects.
