• Common Water Issues in Pierre

    Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

    Much of the drinking water for Pierre comes from groundwater sources. Once sourced, water is cleaned, purified, and tested at a water treatment plant before being distributed throughout the city to local homes and businesses. The tap water in Pierre is regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure it is safe to drink. However, because Pierre's water is typically hard, there can still be a number of problems with its quality.

    Hard Water

    As water moves over the earth or through the ground, it can absorb naturally occurring minerals, including calcium and magnesium. When a higher-than-usual concentration of these minerals is present, the water is classified as hard. While safe to drink, hard water can create a number of household frustrations, including:

    • Scratchy, stiff laundry
    • Soap scum
    • Itchy, dry skin

    Limescale or White Scale Buildup

    Over time, hard water can cause a hard, chalky buildup to form on your faucets, showerheads, appliances, and even inside your pipes and water heaters. Not only is this buildup unsightly, it can lead to serious plumbing problems if left untreated.

    Spotty Glassware

    When washed and rinsed with hard water, your dishes, glasses, and silverware may be left looking dingy, streaky, spotty, and cloudy as the mineral-rich water dries.
