• Common Water Issues in St. Louis

    Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

    The drinking water in St. Louis originates from the Salem Plateau Groundwater Province, where almost half of the state's potable groundwater originates. The water is collected from the St. Francois and Ozark aquifers before being sent to treatment facilities for cleansing, and is then pumped to homes and businesses throughout the city.

    Hard, Poor-Quality Water

    The water in St. Louis is hard. While drinking or bathing with hard water won't harm you, the minerals found in hard water can contribute to a variety of household problems, including:

    • Soap scum
    • Dry, itchy skin and scalp
    • Dull, lifeless hair
    • Stiff, scratchy laundry

    Spotty, Cloudy Glassware

    After hard water dries, it can leave behind spots, streaks, and a cloudy film, making your glassware appear dirty and used — even after running it through the dishwasher.

    Lime or White Scale Buildup

    Limescale is the white, flaky substance that can form as a result of mineral deposits in hard water. Difficult to clean, limescale can cause:

    • Underperforming appliances
    • Rings around sinks and tubs
    • Clogged faucets and showerheads
    • Buildup in coffeemakers and teakettles
