Common Water Issues in Toledo

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

The main source of Akron's drinking water is the Upper Cuyahoga River, which has been the city's drinking source for the last 100 years. The City of Akron Water Plant is responsible for treating approximately 35 million gallons of surface water a day. Once treated, water is pumped over 11 miles to storage reservoirs within Akron city limits. The water distribution system that disperses drinking water to Akron residents consists of approximately 1,225 miles of water mains.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

The tap water in Akron is typically hard, which means there is a high concentration of minerals that have been absorbed into the water supply. While drinking it won't harm you, hard water can be responsible for a number of challenges around the house, including:

  • Soap scum
  • Low-performing appliances
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Laundry that is stiff and scratchy

Limescale Buildup

A hard, white, chalky buildup, limescale is the result of mineral-rich hard water. Limescale can appear as:

  • Chalky deposits found on kettles, pots, and pans
  • Greenish-white buildup that clogs faucets and showerheads
  • Rings around sinks and tubs

Stains or Colored Water

Heavy metals are common in water supplied by natural sources. While trace amounts in your tap water are not harmful, metals can cause your water to appear discolored, which can lead to tinted laundry and stained appliances.

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

Using mulch around trees and shrubs can help plants retain moisture, allowing for less frequent watering.
