    Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

    Indianapolis is one of the lowest-ranking cities in the U.S. for water quality. Water is sourced directly from the White River and a huge problem arises when it rains in the city, as it only takes a quarter inch of rain for untreated raw sewage stored in tanks to overflow into the river. In addition, water can also become tainted due to high levels of mercury and other heavy contaminants from surrounding industrial facilities. As a result, the water dispersed to Indianapolis homes and businesses is heavily treated.

    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

    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

    Spotty, Cloudy Sediment on Glassware

    Due to added minerals, such as ammonia and chlorine, used in the process of water filtration, dishes can come out looking less than clean. Some examples of this include: White spots on freshly cleaned dishes and appliances Cloudy residue on glassware and tile Easy-to-spot fingerprints on clean dishes due to buildup Streaks and stripes on dishes from drying water
