Common Water Issues in Birmingham

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Birmingham boasts an abundance of natural freshwater from multiple sources, some more vulnerable to contamination than others. The primary sources of freshwater come from Inland Lake and Cahaba River, as well as the Mulberry and Sipsey forks of the Black Warrior River. Parts of the Mulberry Fork are highly susceptible to contamination from strip mining and travel from both the bridge and highway that bypass it. Boat launches, septic tanks, and stormwater runoff are also sources of contamination in Birmingham's other freshwater sources.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

Due to its high mineral content, Birmingham's water is hard. While safe to drink, using hard water around the house can result in:

  • Spotty, cloudy glassware
  • Limescale buildup
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Unpleasant taste or smell

Soap Scum

Hard water can contribute to the buildup of soap scum, particularly on bathroom surfaces, including:

  • Bathtubs
  • Shower walls and doors
  • Tile
  • Sinks and faucets

General Bad Taste

Birmingham residents often notice a bad taste to their water, which can also affect the taste of coffee, teas, powdered drinks, and soups.

There are many different types of water issues and each one may require a different solution. No matter what the problems are, your Birmingham Culligan Water Expert knows the right filtration solution. The best way to find out what's causing your water problems, and how to fix them, is a free and simple Culligan water test.
