Common Water Issues in Jacksonville

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Jacksonville's water comes from an underground aquifer fed by groundwater sources near Richlands, North Carolina. These groundwater sources provide high-quality drinking water that is treated only with chlorine before being pumped from wells. However, the taste may be affected by the chlorination or by a high level of minerals often found in groundwater sources.

Hard Water

A combination of mineral deposits and the chlorination process used for disinfection has led to hard water in Jacksonville. If you've noticed dry skin or an itchy scalp, it's probably hard water that's to blame. Additional problems caused by hard water include:

  • Stiffness in clothing after washing
  • Soap that doesn't lather or dissolve
  • An abundance of hard-to-clean soap scum
  • Inefficient appliances

Lime Buildup

Lime buildup is a result of high levels of calcium and magnesium, which is often found in well water. When it builds up on fixtures or pipes, limescale can create a number of household problems. If left untreated, lime buildup can:

  • Damage appliances like washing machines and dishwashers
  • Corrode hot water heaters
  • Reduce water flow from faucets and spigots

Bad Taste

The sediment found in well water may give Jacksonville's water a cloudy appearance. It can also leave spots on dishes, glasses, or silverware, and cause glass shower doors to become opaque.

  • Chlorination — Jacksonville's drinking water is treated with chlorine for disinfection purposes. While the water is clean and safe to drink, it may have a bad smell or taste from chlorination.
  • Mineralization — Water pumped from wells can have high levels of manganese. This naturally occurring element can have a negative effect on your water, .giving it a funny taste or smell.
