Common Water Problems

Here in Southwest Virginia, a variety of factors can affect how water tastes, smells and feels. That's why we test your water before we recommend how to treat it properly. Here are a few of the problems we commonly see and treat.

Hard Water

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, which results in less efficiency and costly repairs.

Iron and Manganese

Iron and Manganese

High levels of iron and manganese can cause discolored water as well as stains on clothing, appliances and fixtures. Although iron is more common, they are often found together. Iron deposits can build up in pressure tanks, water heaters, filters and plumbing which can result in reduced water pressure, reduced efficiency and costly repairs. What's more, these metals can cause water to have a metallic taste and odor. Recommended treatment methods vary depending on contaminant level and its chemical form. More about Iron and Manganese
