Common Water Issues in Denver

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Nearly all of Denver's water is sourced directly from the Rocky Mountain watershed, carried by four main tributaries to the Denver area, and held in five main reservoirs. The water is then sent to three different facilities by way of canals, pipes, and streams for treatment before being dispersed to the 1.5 million residents in the Denver area. Although the original source of Denver's water is one of the most pristine in the country, the journey form source to faucet is a long and complex one, allowing plenty of opportunity for the water to absorb minerals and metals along the way.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

Dissolved iron and other hard minerals are absorbed in water during the filtration process. As a result, the water can become hard and poor in quality. Issues associated with the use of hard water include:

  • Malfunctioning appliances due to sediment and buildup
  • Hard-to-clean residue in kitchens and bathrooms
  • Itchy, dry skin
  • Stiff, scratchy clothing and linens
  • Unappealing taste or smell to water

Limescale Buildup

Limescale is a hard, off-white deposit that creates buildup on many household items due to the concentration of minerals found in hard water. Signs of limescale buildup include:

  • Sediment and scum on bathroom and kitchen appliances
  • White scale rings on bathtubs
  • Buildup that causes faucets and showerheads to clog
  • Increase in utility bills due to accumulated buildup in heating and cooling units
  • Chalky deposits found on kettles, pots, and pans

Spotty, Cloudy Glassware

Spotty and cloudy residue on glassware can be an annoying addition to any household. Hard water can make dishes, glassware, and even silverware appear:

  • Spotty
  • Cloudy
  • Streaky
  • Covered in a film or residue
