Common Water Issues in Tucson
Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems
Tucson relies primarily on a regional aquifer to supply water to its residents. Because Tucson receives very little rainfall, the city has started several water conservation and recycling projects. The Central Arizona Project (CAP) supplies Arizona residents with billions of gallons of Colorado River water each year.
Poor-Quality, Hard Water
Because Tucson's water is high in dissolved minerals, it is considered hard. While perfectly safe to drink, hard water can lead to a number of housekeeping challenges, including:
- Soap scum residue
- Scratchy, stiff, faded laundry
- Dry, itchy skin
Spotty, Cloudy Glassware
If you notice your glassware is looking cloudy and spotted, it's probably not your dishwasher's fault, but pesky residue left behind after being washed and rinsed with hard water.
Lime or White Scale Buildup
This hard, off-white deposit is unsightly and tough to clean, often forming on your faucets, fixtures, and appliances.
Keeping hard or poor-quality water from affecting your home is easy. Just schedule a free water test with your Tucson Culligan Man. He will identify any problems and suggest the filtration solution that fits your home's specific needs.
Tips From the Culligan Man
Water outdoor plants in the morning or in the evening when temperatures are cooler in order to prevent water from evaporating in the heat of the day.
