Common Water Issues in Columbia

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Water for the people of Columbia comes from Baltimore, which is sourced from rainfall and snowmelt, and supplemented by the Susquehanna River in times of drought. The water is collected and stored in one of three reservoirs, which - after treatment and filtration - is distributed to more than 1.8 million homes and businesses throughout Columbia.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

Hard water contains dissolved minerals, including calcium and magnesium, which can cause noticeable problems around the house, including:

  • Stiff, scratchy clothing
  • Low-performing appliances
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Soap scum

Unpleasant Odor

Although chlorine is used frequently as a water treatment additive to disinfect Columbia's water supply, it is one of the most common causes of foul-smelling water. It can leave behind an unpleasant odor, leaving it unappealing to drink.

Lime or White Scale Buildup

A common symptom of hard water is limescale. These chalky, white deposits are the result of hard water's high mineral content, and can be unsightly and hard to remove.

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

Spray vodka (the cheap stuff) on shower doors, let it sit, and wipe away stains from limescale.

Did You Know?

Lime is added to Columbia's water supply during the treatment process to raise its pH levels.
