Common Water Issues in Ogden
Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems
While the majority of Ogden's water supply comes from the Weber River Drainage, it also sources water from local streams, three deep wells, and three springs. Much of the water travels to the Pineview Reservoir before it is treated and dispersed to local Ogden residents.
Hard, Poor-Quality Water
When tap water is rich in minerals â€” Like Ogden's â€” it's considered hard water. These minerals can present a number of challenges when water is used for cooking, cleaning, or bathing, including:
- Dull, lifeless hair
- Itchy, dry skin
- Soap scum
- Limescale buildup
- Spotty, cloudy glassware
Itchy, Dry Skin
One of hard water's most frustrating characteristics is the effect it has on skin and hair. Showering with hard water can leave behind an invisible film that makes skin feel dry and itchy, and hair feel limp, lifeless, and difficult to manage.
Spotty, Cloudy Glassware
Whether you wash your dishes at the sink or in the dishwasher, hard water can cause even freshly washed dishes and glassware to appear spotty and cloudy.
