Common Water Issues in Lafayette

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Water in Lafayette comes from the Chicot Aquifer — a large, natural, underground lake. Drawn from 18 wells, ranging in depth from 400 to 650 feet, the water can become exposed to minerals or chemicals that can affect the quality of Lafayette's water, even after the water treatment process.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

The water that makes it to your faucet is typically hard, and although drinking hard water is not harmful, it can cause some noticeable problems around the house. Common hard water issues include:

  • Residue on dishes and glassware
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Stiff or scratchy laundry
  • Low-performing appliances

Deposit Buildup

Water drawn from wells can be prone to problems just like water from any other source.

  • Lime buildup or 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.

Stains or Colored Water

Water drawn from natural sources is more likely to produce colored water in your home. Discolored water can leave your clothes stained and your drinking water unappealing.

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

To help minimize the effects of hard water, set your water heater temperature to 120-125 degrees.
