The primary water sources of Gilbert, Arizona come from the Salt, Verde, and Colorado rivers. The Salt River Project manages the water that is derived from the Salt and Verde river dams and reservoirs, while the Central Arizona Project carries water from the Colorado River and Lake Havasu to Gilbert by way of Phoenix. Collected groundwater also contributes to the general water supply. Once the water reaches Gilbert, it is then sent through canals that carry it to one of two water treatment facilities that lay on the north and east sides of town. The water that ends up in Gilbert's drinking glasses and showerheads is a very different product from the mountain water from which it originates.

Additionally, minerals and chemicals added during the filtration process leave water tasting unsavory and bitter.
Limescale or white scale buildup is the result of high concentrations of calcium and other minerals and chemicals in hard water. This can cause:
