Common Water Issues in Indiananpolis

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Indianapolis is one of the lowest-ranking cities in the U.S. for water quality. Water is sourced directly from the White River and a huge problem arises when it rains in the city, as it only takes a quarter inch of rain for untreated raw sewage stored in tanks to overflow into the river. In addition, water can also become tainted due to high levels of mercury and other heavy contaminants from surrounding industrial facilities. As a result, the water dispersed to Indianapolis homes and businesses is heavily treated.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

As local water makes the long journey from source to faucet, it absorbs dissolved minerals and chemicals, like iron and ammonia, along the way. This results in the water becoming hard, which can be the cause of a number of household headaches. Some issues associated with hard water include:

  • Stiff or scratchy laundry
  • Invisible soapy film on skin, leaving skin dry and itchy
  • Low-performing appliances due to buildup

Spotty, Cloudy Sediment on Glassware

Due to the high levels of minerals found in hard water, dinnerware, silverware, and glassware can come out of the dishwasher looking less than clean. Doing the dishes with hard water can result in:

  • White spots on freshly cleaned dishes
  • Cloudy residue on glassware and tile
  • Easy-to-spot fingerprints on clean dishes due to buildup
  • Streaks and stripes on dishes left behind by drying water

Limescale Buildup

Limescale or white scale buildup is caused by hard water. Unsightly and difficult to clean, limescale can cause:

  • Chalky deposits found on pots and pans
  • Off-white buildup that causes faucets and showerheads to clog
  • Buildup that impedes the healthy flow of water through plumbing and sewage systems

Did You Know

Warm temperatures and sunlight cause algae to grow in lakes, reservoirs, and canals. The algae produce chemicals that are not harmful, but cause a musty or earthy taste or smell when they die.
