Common Water Issues in Lexington

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The water supply for the city of Lexington primarily comes from the Kentucky River. The water travels from its source to a treatment facility where it is processed before being delivered to local homes and businesses.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

Much of the water flowing from Lexington's taps is hard, which means the water has a high concentration of mineral compounds, including calcium and magnesium. Drinking hard water is not at all hazardous to your health, but using hard water around the house can cause a number of housekeeping headaches, including:

  • Soap scum residue
  • Buildup in pipes and plumbing
  • Laundry that prematurely fades and is rough to the touch
  • Spotty, cloudy glassware, silverware, and dishes

Lime or White Scale Buildup

Hard water can also be responsible for lime buildup on your sinks, fixtures, and appliances. This buildup is both unsightly and tough to clean, and can result in:

  • Rings around sinks and bathtubs
  • Buildup on appliances
  • Stubborn residue on surfaces
  • Buildup on pots and pans

Itchy, Dry Skin

One of hard water's more irritating characteristics is a residue left behind on skin and hair after bathing or showering. This residue can leave your skin feeling dry and itchy, and hair feeling limp, lifeless, and hard to manage.

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert
