Understanding Common Water Contaminants

It's not difficult to know you have a water problem if what gushes out of your tap is discolored, smelly or leaves behind a residue, however, harmful contaminants, like arsenic and lead, can go undetected by the senses. Your leading water expert at Culligan Lake of the Ozarks has a home water system for any problem your home's water may have. Learn more about common water contaminants and how a local licensed water technician can test your water, detect contaminants, and identify a solution to target and treat your water.

Iron in Water

If your water is contaminated by dissolved iron, you may notice the water's "hardness." Not only can hard water leave your skin feeling rough and dry, it may actually taste odd - slightly metallic. You might also notice rust-colored stains on fixtures and in sinks, or scale buildup in plumbing. Beyond unpleasant side effects, iron in water can cause real damage throughout your home. Hard water can impact plumbing efficiency, causing problems in pipes and fixtures that can be costly to repair. It can also shorten the lifespan of the major appliances in your home. Appliances that use hard water lose efficiency over time due to limescale buildup and mineral deposits that slow them down.

Common Indicators of Iron

  • Reddish or red-brown stains on your laundry, plumbing fixtures and cooking utensils
  • Yellow or orange-colored water
  • Metallic taste to your water
  • Dry or itchy skin and dull hair

Culligan Solution

If you have a high concentration of iron in your water Culligan Lake of the Ozarks offers a variety of water softeners and filters designed to treat the problems caused by iron in water. Our High Efficiency Water Softener can transform your home's water from the shower to your laundry room and reduce the problems associated with hard water.

Lead in Water

Detecting lead in water is extremely difficult. Generally invisible, odorless and tasteless, levels of lead concentration in drinking water and tap systems can often pass unnoticed. Aging pipes and plumbing infrastructure is the most common way drinking water is exposed to lead and homes built prior to 1986 are more likely to have plumbing components containing lead. The best way to find out if lead is contaminating your water source is to have it tested by your local Culligan Man. 

Culligan Solution

After a test has been conducted and if it comes back with any levels of lead, your Culligan Man will be ready to recommend the best filtration solution to remove the lead in your water, whether it's an under sink, point-of-use filtration system, or a whole home water filter.

Sulfur in Water

When the presence of sulfur in your water becomes problematic, it is generally due to the level of dissolved hydrogen sulfide content or the presence of sulfur bacteria. Sulfur in your water is unpleasant in smell and can also create slime that results in the growth of other bacteria.

Common Indicators of Sulfur

  • Unpleasant rotten-egg smell
  • Odor that's worse or more obvious from hot water sources
  • Unpleasant taste

Culligan Solution

The most common and effective treatment for water with varying levels of sulfur in your home is through a water filter. Culligan offers a variety of high efficiency water filters that can remove the effects of sulfur economically and with minimal maintenance.

Total Dissolved Solids in Water

Total dissolved solids most commonly refer to the levels of dissolved ions, like calcium, lead, and iron, in your water. Unnatural levels of total dissolved solids can create problems around the house and potentially impact your health. From bad tasting water to plumbing problems, detecting and eliminating excess total dissolved solids is necessary to improve the quality of your home's water.

Common Indicators of Total Dissolved Solids

  • Cloudy water appearance
  • Salty, bitter or metallic taste
  • Corroded pipes or fixtures
  • Shorter appliance lifespan

Culligan Solution

An effective way to remove Total Dissolved Solids and their negative effects from water is with filtration or reverse osmosis. Culligan Lake of the Ozarks can recommend filtration solutions to match your needs.

As the leading water expert in the Lake of the Ozarks area, Culligan Lake of the Ozarks has a home water system for any problem. We will work with you to find a solution that is customized to your needs and budget. Don't let problems such as hard water or high iron content damage your home's water quality or force you to fork over more money for your water bill, cleaning expenses and maintenance costs.  Clean, better-tasting water is just a call away!
