Common Water Issues in Mountain Home

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The main source of Mountain Home's water comes from nearby Norfork Lake. Neighboring streams, lakes, ponds, and reservoirs also contribute to the water supply. Water travels to the town in canals above ground, as well as through underground pipes to the facility where it is treated. Due to the long journey Mountain Home's water makes from source to tap, the final product is much different from its original state.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Due to dissolved iron and other hard minerals absorbed during the filtration process, the water becomes hard and loses its original purity. Some signs of hard water include:

  • Clogged faucets and appliances due to buildup
  • Scratchy and stiff laundry and linens
  • Itchy, dry skin due to residual film after showering
  • Hard-to-remove stains and buildup on surfaces

General Bad Taste

There is nothing satisfying or thirst-quenching about a tall glass of water that has an unsavory taste. High mineral concentrations in hard water can result in:

  • Musty smell and taste
  • Bitter taste due to high levels of added chlorine
  • Tea and coffee that tastes 'off '
  • Unpleasant taste while brushing teeth

Sediment and Soap Scum

Limescale is a hard, off-white buildup that can be found on many household items due to deposits in hard water. Some examples of this include:

  • Pesky sediment and scum buildup on bathroom and kitchen appliances
  • Malfunctioning or underperforming appliances
  • Cloudy dishes and glassware
  • Stubborn stains on bathtubs and showers
  • Buildup on fixtures, sinks, and tubs
  • Itchy, dry skin and dull, lank hair
  • Clogged faucets and showerheads
