Problems with Drinking Water Quality?
You can no longer take for granted the quality of your home’s water; its quality varies from place to place, and even house to house. A number of factors influence how your water tastes, smells, feels and works in and around your home. Well water quality, possible contamination, an aging water distribution system, violations of federal drinking water standards and a home’s plumbing are examples of things that can affect a home’s water supply. Some water problems may not be as obvious as others.
Below, we’ve listed the water problems we commonly see. Please contact us today to have your water tested, so we can determine whether water treatment is necessary and which option is right for you.

Effects of Hard Water
Hard water affects appliances in many ways. Dishwashers can leave spots on your glasses and dishes, while washing machines using hard water will cause clothes to become scratchy and stiffer, and wear out faster. Your energy bill may very well increase because hard water causes hot water heaters to build up limescale, and hard water will hamper the efficiency of other appliances that use water.
On our bodies, the symptoms are most noticeable. Hard water leaves a sticky, soap film on the skin, preventing you from getting truly clean due to bacteria and dirt being trapped. Hard water causes hair to feel sticky, look greasy and next to impossible to manage.
Also affected are the aesthetics of your bathroom: shower scum on glass doors and bathroom tiles, and a ring around the bathtub. You may also be spending more on soap for washing machines, dishwashers, etc. because more will be needed to cut through the effects of hard water.
