Common Naples Water Issues

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The drinking water in Naples comes from the Lower Tamiani Aquifer and is pumped in from wells located on Goodlette-Frank Road and in Golden Gate. The groundwater is extracted from limestone bedrock, where rainwater is absorbed and stored. As a result, Naples' water can be high in sedimentation and minerals that can alter the color or the taste.

Hard Water

Hard water is a result of high calcium and magnesium content, which occurs when water filters through minerals, such as the limestone bed where Naples gets its water supply. It can cause a variety of problems in your home, including:

  • Deposits that clog plumbing
  • Corrosion of metals, like pipes and appliances
  • Drying out of skin and hair

Colored Water

Because the water in Naples comes from bedrock, it may have higher levels of metals like iron and manganese, which results in a reddish or brown color. The water is safe to drink, but it can be unappetizing. It may also stain your clothes or your sinks, tubs, and toilet bowls.

Bad Taste

Naples' water is actually rainwater that is absorbed by limestone bedrock. When it's extracted, it's treated with a limestone-softening process before it reaches your home. However, the water may still have high levels of lime, resulting in white scale buildup in your house. This buildup can wreak havoc, causing household problems like:

  • Water treatment — Naples' water is treated with a lime-softening process and then chlorinated for disinfection, which may cause the drinking water to taste funny. It might taste or smell like chlorine, or you may notice a bitter taste as a result of high pH from limestone.
  • Decreased water flow
  • Spots on dishes and glasses
  • Higher energy bills

If your drinking water tastes bitter or is causing lime buildup on your fixtures and appliances, Culligan offers a filtration solution that can help.
