Common Water Issues in Columbus

Solutions For Your Water Quality Problems

Columbus' main source of municipal water is supplied from three reservoirs, which provide over 90% of the 140 million gallons that Columbus uses daily. The remaining 10% comes from wells in southern Franklin County. Because both industrial facilities and farmland are plentiful in the Columbus area, water has a higher risk of coming into contact with runoff and contaminants. As a result, chemicals are added during the treatment process as a disinfectant before it is dispersed to homes and businesses around Columbus.

Poor-Quality, Hard Water

The water in Columbus is hard, which means it contains a significant amount of mineral elements. This can cause a number of problems around the home, including:

  • Buildup in pipes and water heaters
  • Stiff, scratchy laundry
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Dull, limp hair

Lime Buildup or White Scale

The same minerals that make Columbus' water hard can also cause a buildup of limescale to form on bathroom and kitchen surfaces. Limescale is both unsightly and tough to clean, and can result in:

  • Rings around sinks and tubs
  • Underperforming appliances
  • Stubborn residue on surfaces
  • Buildup on pots and pans

Stains or Colored Water

Discolored water is often caused by organic materials in the water supply or exposure to old, rusty plumbing. While colored water is typically no cause for concern, it can be responsible for stained laundry, and discolored sinks and tubs.

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

Soaking dirty pots and pans with a grease-cutting soap rather than rinsing them under the tap can help save water.
