    Common Water Issues in Mobile

    Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

    The source of Mobile’s drinking water is the Converse Reservoir — also known as Big Creek Lake — which is fed by springs, streams, and rainfall in the Converse Reservoir Watershed. The Converse Reservoir Watershed is a 103-square-mile area of land that your drinking water travels over before reaching the Converse Reservoir. As the water travels over the ground it can pick up contaminants along the way, requiring chemicals like chlorine to eliminate potentially dangerous bacteria in your water.


    Chlorine is used by nearly every water treatment plant in the country in order to disinfect water before distribution. While it makes the water supply safe for drinking, chlorine can leave behind a faint odor or taste that can your water unappealing. From hard water to cloudy glassware to lime buildup, there's a Culligan filtration solution that can help solve your water problems. Just take the simple, free Culligan water test to figure out what's causing the problem – and to identify the best solution to take care of it!

    General Bad Taste

    During the treatment process, minerals and chemicals – such as iron and chlorine – are added to the water, resulting in a low-quality end product that can sometimes taste and smell foul. High concentrations of added minerals or chemicals in hard water can result in:

    • A bitter, chemical taste to water
    • Tea and coffee that tastes or smells 'off'
    • Unpleasant taste while brushing teeth

    Stains or Discolored Water

    As water travels, it picks up deposits from minerals, like iron, which can tint water a reddish-brown. Old pipes and plumbing systems can also turn water a different shade. Some headaches associated with using discolored water throughout the house include:

    • Laundry that comes out of the wash looking soiled
    • Murky drinking water
    • A dark tint to bath and shower water
    • Dark streaks on windows and glass
