    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
    • 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.

    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
