Common Water Issues in Hartford

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The water in Hartford comes from surface water sources in watersheds that cover almost 90 square miles. The water supply comes from both the Farmington River and the Nepaug River. There are a number of water quality issues you may run into in Hartford, including poor-quality, hard water, which can cause white scale buildup due to the water's metal and mineral content.

Metals in Water

Iron and manganese are naturally occurring elements that are commonly found in Connecticut groundwater and wells. Treatment methods for these elements vary — your local Hartford Culligan Man is an expert on your water and can perform a water test to see what metals are present, what issues the metals in your water could be causing, and provide the best way to address them.

Stains and Discoloration

The presence of metals in your water is not considered hazardous to your health, but may result in the discoloration of both your appliances and your laundry.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

The hard water in the Hartford community is another common cause of household problems. It can cause:

  • Lime or white scale buildup
  • Clogged pipes and reduced water flow
  • Spotty, cloudy dishes and glassware
  • Scratchy laundry
  • Dry, itchy skin and lank, lifeless hair

No matter where your water comes from, and especially if you get your water from a private well, it's a good idea to have your water tested regularly.

Tips From the Culligan Man

Have your local Culligan Man check your faucets and pipes for leaks. Even a small leak from a faucet can waste 20 gallons of water per day.

Did You Know

Cloudy water can be caused by air bubbles in your water. This happens more often when the outside temperature drops.
