Common Water Issues in Miami

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The drinking water in Miami primarily comes from the Biscayne Aquifer. This aquifer is located just a few feet underground, making the water in Miami more susceptible to a wide range of surface contaminants. Those substances can affect everything from the quality to the taste of Miami's drinking water.

Hard Water

Miami has hard water, which means the drinking water includes a high level of calcium and magnesium. Hard water is responsible for both minor and major household headaches, such as:

  • Hard-to-clean soap scum
  • Dry skin or itchy scalp
  • Stiff, scratchy laundry
  • Inefficient appliances

Bad Taste

The Biscayne Aquifer contains natural organic material that may negatively affect the taste of Miami's drinking water. Treatment plants use a combination of processes to remove contaminations, including filtration, flocculation, sedimentation, and disinfection. All designed to make Miami water safe to drink, these processes may leave the water tasting or smelling of chlorine.

Lime Buildup

Lime buildup is a common problem in Miami homes due to hard water in the area. Limescale not only looks unsightly, but if left untreated, it can cause serious damage that includes:

  • Clogged pipes or drainage systems
  • Damaged appliances
  • Corroded hot water heaters
  • Stains in sinks, tubs, and toulets
  • When surface water moves over the land, it picks up naturally occurring minerals along the way. When those minerals dissolve into the water, they may affect the color of the water. Miami's drinking water may look yellowish from traveling over marshland, or it may take on a rusty color from an excess of iron or manganese.

If you're dealing with drinking water that tastes bad, is too hard, or is discolored, a Culligan filtration solution can help. Find out what's causing the problem by taking the simple, free Culligan water test – and then learn how you can effectively eliminate it!
