Common Water Issues in Baton Rouge

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The water supply for Baton Rouge comes from 66 wells that range in depth from 600 to 2,800 feet. The water enters the ground near Vicksburg, Mississippi, moving through sand strata before reaching Baton Rouge, where the water supply is drawn off by wells and chlorinated before distribution.

Stains or Colored Water

Baton Rouge-area water contains a small amount of manganese, which can sometimes leave the water in your home with a brownish tint. Although manganese is a naturally occurring mineral, stained or colored water is unsightly and leaves you with unappealing drinking water.

Residue Buildup

Wells can be prone to water problems just like any water source.

  • Lime buildup and white scale — Limescale is the result of calcium- and magnesium-rich hard water that can leave chalky deposits behind.
  • Soap scum — When calcium from hard water combines with soap, a thin film commonly known as soap scum can form on the surfaces of bathtubs, sinks, and pipes.

Unpleasant Odor

One of the most common causes of foul-smelling water is chlorine. Used frequently as a water treatment additive, it's regularly found in Baton Rouge-area water, and even moderate levels can lead to foul, sulfuric or rotten-egg odors in drinking water.

Your local Baton Rouge Culligan Water Expert is an expert on your water, can test it to determine any problems, and provide the best way to address them.

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

Remove buildup from chrome, brass, or copper faucets by wiping away the mineral deposits with a lemon wedge.
