Common Water Issues in Gilbert

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The primary water sources of Gilbert, Arizona come from the Salt, Verde, and Colorado rivers. The Salt River Project manages the water that is derived from the Salt and Verde river dams and reservoirs, while the Central Arizona Project carries water from the Colorado River and Lake Havasu to Gilbert by way of Phoenix. Collected groundwater also contributes to the general water supply. Once the water reaches Gilbert, it is then sent through canals that carry it to one of two water treatment facilities that lay on the north and east sides of town. The water that ends up in Gilbert's drinking glasses and showerheads is a very different product from the mountain water from which it originates.

Spotty, Cloudy Sediment on Glassware

Due to added minerals, such as ammonia and chlorine, used in the process of water filtration, dishes can come out looking less than clean. Some examples of this include:

  • White spots on freshly cleaned dishes and appliances
  • Cloudy residue on glassware and tile
  • Easy-to-spot fingerprints on clean dishes due to buildup
  • Streaks and stripes on dishes from drying water

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Dissolved iron and other hard minerals are added to Gilbert water during the filtration process. Because of this, the water tends to be harsh and of poor quality. Some results of this are:

  • Hard-to-clean residue on dishes, sinks, and tubs
  • Frequent malfunctioning of appliances
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Laundry that is stiff and uncomfortably scratchy

Lime or White Scale Buildup

  • Chalky deposits found on kettles, pots, and pans
  • White buildup that causes faucets and showerheads to clog
  • Prematurely aged and damaged clothing
  • Buildup that blocks and impedes the healthy water flow of plumbing and sewage systems

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

Limescale and hard water residue can be treated with white vinegar mixed with water.
