    Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

    Carmel’s water is sourced mainly from groundwater, which pumps from 20 different well sites. These sites provide water to three treatment facilities that process a combined total of 22 million gallons of water every day. This water reaches up to 27,000 Carmel customers, distributing water via more than 975 miles of water main.

    Hard, Poor-Quality Water

    Dissolved iron and other hard minerals are absorbed during the filtration and treatment process, as well as along water's journey from source to tap. These absorbed minerals and metals cause the water to become hard and its quality depleted. Some household headaches associated with using hard water include:

    • Clogged appliances that lead to water-flow issues
    • Hard-to-clean residue and buildup on appliances, hardware, and surfaces
    • Soap scum on showers, bathtubs, and sinks
    • Prematurely aged clothing and linens that are rough to the touch

    Itchy, Dry Skin

    One of hard water's most annoying qualities is the drying and irritating effect it has on skin. Some results of showering with hard water include:

    • Flaky, dry, irritated skin
    • Itchy scalp and dandruff
    • Premature aging due to dry skin
