Common Water Issues in San Diego

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

San Diego's water comes from three main sources — the Colorado River, runoff from the Sierra Nevada mountain range, and local supplies like surface and groundwater. Once the water reaches the San Diego area via pipes, canals, and streams, it travels to one of three filtration plants where it is processed. From the filtration facilities, it is then disbursed to over 2 million people in the San Diego area using a complex system of waterways.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Depending on the concentration of minerals, water in San Diego — even after being treated — can also have a bitter or generally unpleasant taste.

  • Hard-to-clean residue on dishes, sinks, and tubs
  • Scratchy, stiff laundry
  • Low-functioning appliances
  • Dry, irritated skin and limp hair
  • Higher utility costs due to clogged heating and cooling units

Lime or White Scale Buildup

  • Chalky deposits found on kettles, pots, and pans
  • Sediment and scum buildup on bathroom and kitchen appliances
  • Difficult-to-clean surfaces
  • White scale rings around bathtubs and sinks

Cloudy, Spotty Glassware

  • Cloudy

  • Streaky or covered in drip marks
