Common Water Issues in Kansas City

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The primary source of Kansas City's drinking water is the Missouri River. The water goes through a state-of-the-art water system that includes two water treatment facilities, four pump stations, and over a thousand miles of water pipes. The water that reaches your tap is hard water, meaning it has a high concentration of mineral deposits, including calcium and magnesium. While perfectly safe to drink, hard water can be a nuisance.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

Minerals are often added to water during the treatment process, leaving water hard and affecting its overall quality. The high mineral content in hard water can often be responsible for:

  • Spotty, cloudy glassware and dishes
  • Stiff, scratchy, faded laundry
  • Unpleasant taste or smell

Lime or White Scale Buildup

A hard-to-clean buildup of limescale can form on your faucets and appliances due to mineral deposits in hard water. Signs that you're dealing with limescale include:

  • Rings around sinks and tubs
  • Clogged faucets and showerheads
  • Buildup on kitchen and bathroom appliances

Dry, Itchy Skin

After showering, hard water can leave a film on your skin that makes it feel dry and itchy. Showering or bathing with hard water can be responsible for:

  • Dry Skin
  • Dull, limp hair
  • Itchy scalp
  • Dandruff
