Common Water Issues in Madison

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The source of Madison's drinking water is a deep sandstone aquifer — an underground, permeable rock formation where water is stored. This water originates as rain or snow, soaks into the ground, and is filtered through layers of soil and rock before replenishing the aquifer. Water from the aquifer is pumped from 22 wells to a water treatment plant to be cleaned, and is then distributed throughout the city to Madison's homes and businesses.

Hard Water

The tap water in Madison is typically hard, which means that the city's water supply is mineral-rich. While drinking hard water won't harm you, its high mineral content can be responsible for a number of challenges around the house, including:

  • Soap scum
  • Low-performing appliances
  • Spotty, streaky glassware
  • Laundry that is stiff and scratchy

Lime Buildup

The same minerals that make water hard can also create a buildup of limescale that accumulates in, on, and around various surfaces throughout your home, including:

  • Sinks and showerheads
  • Appliances
  • Pots and pans
  • Pipes and hot water heaters

Dry, itchy skin

One of the most frustrating and invasive side effects of hard water is the damage it can do to your skin and hair. The minerals in Madison's hard water can leave your skin dry and itchy, can cause itchy scalp and dandruff, and can leave your hair appearing dull and lifeless.

Your Madison Culligan Man is an expert on your water, can test it to determine any problems, and provide the best way to address them.
