Georgetown Water Problems

Common water issues in Georgetown, and how to fix them

Bounded by the Great Lakes, the city of Georgetown is part of the greater region of Halton, and sits along the banks of the Credit River. Its geography allows for a bountiful supply of surface water for the city's use, and it is sourced, treated, and distributed through the Halton Region’s five water treatment and purification plants. Problem water can sometimes pervade even the most well-treated water — especially water that originates from surface sources — which can cause some common complaints for Georgetown homeowners.

Hard Water

Dissolved minerals often make their way into Georgetown’s water via sediment from the Credit River and Lake Ontario. The result is hard water, made that way by minerals like iron and calcium, that can make water hard to manage throughout the home, causing:

  • Elevated utility bills
  • Dry, irritated skin
  • Scratchy, stiff laundry
  • Water discolourations

Sulphur Odours

Dissolved sulphur can be hard to miss in your water, as it often evokes a particularly pungent rotten-egg smell. This smell is commonly caused by natural fluctuations in the bacteria that cause hydrogen sulphide, the cause of the odour. Since bacteria often thrive in warmer conditions, odours can be worse at certain times of the year — namely, during the spring and summer months in and around Georgetown.

Low-Performing Appliances

Hard water makes it harder for water appliances to do their jobs effectively. The minerals and sediment that often accompany hard water, like iron and calcium, leave buildup behind in dishwashers and washing machines — even coffee pots and humidifiers — in addition to affecting the necessary plumbing and fixtures appliances require. Homeowners often notice this contributing to rising utility bills as big-ticket appliances have to use more energy to do their jobs.

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

Use filtered water for cooking, as well as for brewing teas and coffee, to notice better-tasting results immediately.
