Common Water Issues in South Bend

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Water in South Bend is managed by South Bend Water Works, which maintains 32 wells and over 545 miles of waterways. This water distribution system pumps, treats, and transports water to the 101,000 residents in South Bend, Indiana.

Stains or Discolored Water

Often, the water that flows out of South Bend's faucets appears discolored or cloudy. In addition to being unappealing, discolored water can lead to a number of housekeeping headaches, including:

  • Stained laundry and linens
  • Streaks on windows and glassware
  • Stains on fixtures and around sinks and tubs

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

Water often absorbs dissolved minerals on its journey from source to tap, which can compromise the water's overall quality, causing it to become hard. Symptoms of hard water include:

  • Underperforming appliances due to sediment and buildup
  • Residue buildup in kitchens and bathrooms
  • Itchy, dry skin and limp, lifeless hair
  • Stiff, scratchy laundry
  • Bitter or unpleasant taste

Limescale Buildup

Limescale or white scale buildup is the result of the high concentrations of minerals present in hard water. Limescale is often the culprit behind:

  • Clogged faucets and showerheads
  • Chalky deposits found on kettles, pots, and pans
  • Reduced water flow in plumbing and sewage systems

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

Mix ½ cup vinegar with ½ teaspoon all-purpose liquid detergent and 2 cups very hot tap water. Combine in a spray bottle and mix well for a great way to clean hard water buildup.

Did You Know

Because South Bend's water is particularly hard, minerals in municipal water can sometimes react to the natural oils in coffee beans and tea leaves to form a scum-like substance on the surface of your favorite hot beverage.
