Common Water Issues in Naperville

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Naperville's water supply comes from Lake Michigan, where it is purchased from the DuPage Water Commission. The water is processed through the city of Chicago's extensive water purification system before it travels to Naperville. This process involves the water being pumped into an intake crib in Lake Michigan, where it then travels two miles to Chicago and undergoes a rigorous filtration process at a treatment facility before being pumped to one of 12 distribution sites in Naperville.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Due to dissolved iron and other hard minerals added to Naperville's water during the filtration process, the water becomes hard and the quality is diminished. Some results of using hard water around the house include:

  • Clogged faucets and appliances due to buildup
  • Itchy and dry skin
  • Hard-to-remove stains and buildup on surfaces

Soap Scum and Sediment

As a result of hard water, soap scum can make even simple cleaning projects a pain. Evidence of soap scum around the house includes::

  • Buildup on household appliances and faucets
  • Cloudy dishes and glassware
  • Uncomfortable film on skin and hair

Lime or White Scale

Limescale is a hard, off-white buildup that can be found on fixtures and surfaces due to deposits present in hard water. Symptoms of limescale include:

  • Hard, white buildup on fixtures, sinks, and tubs
  • Difficult-to-clean surfaces
  • Stiff laundry that is rough to the touch
