    Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

    Cleveland’s main source of water is Lake Erie. Water is drawn from Lake Erie by four intakes, which are located a considerable distance from the shore in order to help protect water from possible contamination. After water is pumped, it is treated at one of four nearby treatment plants before being distributed to residents across a huge 640-square-mile area using a system that includes 5,200 miles of underground pipes, 22 water towers and tanks, and 11 pump stations.

    Limescale Buildup

    Limescale is a hard, off-white buildup that can be found on surfaces, appliances, and fixtures due to mineral deposits in hard water. Signs that you're dealing with limescale include:
    • Buildup on fixtures, sinks, and tubs
    • Clogged faucets and showerheads
    • Rings around tubs and sinks
    • Chalky deposits on kettles, pots, and pans
    • No matter what the cause of your water issues may be, Culligan's free water test will help you get to the root of your water problems.

    Poor-Quality, Hard Water

    Dissolved iron and other hard minerals are added to the water during the filtration process. Because of this, the water tends to be harsh and of poor quality. Some results of this are:
    • Hard-to-clean residue on dishes, sinks, and tubs
    • Frequent malfunctioning of appliances
    • Dry, itchy skin
    • Laundry that is stiff and uncomfortably scratchy

    Stains or Colored Water

    Chlorine and chlorine by-products can also cause a host of other problems, including discoloration. While it may not be harmful, tinted water can leave stains around sinks and tubs, as well as on laundry and linens.
