Phoenix Water Problems

Common water issues in Phoenix, and how to fix them

Phoenix's primary water sources are the Colorado, Salt, and Verde rivers. Diverted river water, along with supplemented groundwater, empties into canals that feed one of five water treatment plants in the city. The trip water makes from the mountains to the metro area means it often absorbs problems along the way.

Hard, Poor-Quality Water

Caused primarily by dissolved iron and other minerals, hard Phoenix water can turn into a variety of headaches around the house. It's responsible for:

  • Lime and white scale buildup on sinks and fixtures
  • Residue on dishes and glassware
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Stiff or scratchy laundry
  • Low-performing appliances

Unpleasant Odors

  • Chlorine — One of the most common causes of foul-smelling water for Phoenicians is chlorine. Used frequently as a water treatment additive, it's regularly found in Phoenix-area water, and even moderate levels can lead to a less-than-ideal drinking water experience.
  • Fishy or earthy smells — Not abnormal for Phoenix, these water smells are typically the result of common chlorine and ammonia compounds used during treatment.

Soap Scum and Sediment

Another result of hard water, soap scum and sediment make cleaning a chore and can result in:

  • Spots on glasses
  • Cloudy dishes
  • Residue or stains

Tips From the Culligan Water Expert

Spot remove hard water buildup on fixtures and appliances with white vinegar.

Did You Know
