Common Water Issues in Hays

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The city of Hays gets its water from 37 groundwater wells that receive water from the Smoky Hill Aquifer, the Big Creek Aquifer, and the Dakota Aquifer. Water from these wells is treated to remove contaminants, and disinfectant is added to protect against microbial contaminants. The water in Hays is regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ensure your tap water is safe to drink. However, the water in Hays is often hard, which can contribute to a number of housekeeping challenges.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

When water has a high concentration of mineral deposits, including calcium and magnesium, it's considered hard water. Hard water can:

  • Leave behind soap scum or residue
  • Cause your clothes to fade quickly and feel stiff and scratchy
  • Leave your hair feeling lifeless and difficult to manage

Lime Buildup or White Scale

Hard water can cause a buildup of white scale or lime on your appliances and faucets that is unsightly and difficult to clean. If the hard water in your house is causing limescale, you'll notice:

  • Faucets and showerheads becoming clogged
  • Scale buildup in pots and pans
  • Underperforming appliances
  • Increasing utility costs due to buildup in heating and cooling units

Dry, Itchy Skin

After showering, hard water can leave behind a film on your skin that makes it feel dry and itchy. Hard water is also tough on your hair, causing it to appear limp and lifeless, and making it difficult to style and manage.
