Common Water Issues in Huntsville

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Huntsville drinking water is supplied by the Tennessee River and by groundwater from multiple wells like the Lincoln and Dallas Well Treatment Plant. All the groundwater these wells produce is from limestone aquifers, which means they contain an abundance of minerals — like calcium and magnesium — that make your water hard, causing a host of problems around your home.

Hard Water

Hard water is easy to recognize and is common in areas where the water supply is sourced from limestone aquifers. Some types of buildup from hard water can be boiled away while other types need harsh chemicals to be removed. Hard water is often the culprit behind:

  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Spotty or cloudy dishes
  • Stiff or scratchy laundry
  • Buildup in pots, pans, and kettles

Limescale Buildup

Also known as white scale, limescale is caused by the mineral deposits present in hard water. Lime buildup attaches strongly to any hard surface, making it difficult to remove. It typically causes:

  • Clogged faucets and showerheads
  • Buildup around sinks and tubs
  • Underperforming appliances

Chlorine Taste and Smell

Because chlorine is used as a disinfecting agent during the water treatment process, Huntsville's tap water can often take on the taste and smell of chlorine. While safe to drink when maintained at appropriate levels, the poor taste and unpleasant smell that chlorine causes can make for an unsatisfactory end result.

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

To check if your toilet tank is leaking, put a few drops of food coloring in the tank, wait about 15 minutes, and look in the bowl. If the food coloring shows up there, the tank is leaking.
