Symptoms Of Poor Water Quality

Did you know the quality of your home's water can cause a variety of issues throughout your home? Hard water, improper pH balance and other contaminates can cause issues that range from spots on your glassware to damaging the water pipes in your home. If you are noticing any of the following symptoms in your home, call Lake of the Ozarks' water experts at 573-719-1314.

Dry Skin / Hair
Hard water will not only affect your home, but you may also notice it affecting your body. It can clog your pore, which can leave your skin feeling dry and itchy. In addition, your hair can become damaged and unmanageable due to hard water.

Stiff Laundry / Laundry Stains
Calcium and magnesium lingering in your water can cause your laundry to become stiff or hard. In addition, poor water quality can also leave your freshly laundered clothes with stains. Iron is just one of the possible reasons for your water damaging your clothes.

Soap Scum / Lime Buildup
Soap scum and lime build-up are the residues that you see left behind on faucets, in your tub, and in your sinks. It’s caused by hard water and can be damaging to your pipes and fixtures.

Spots on Glass / Cloudy Glassware
Hard water will leave your glasses spotted and dirty looking even when they come straight out of the dishwasher. In addition, you will also find these spots on your shower door and faucets.

Poor / Bad Taste
Does your tap water taste bad? If so, there could be contaminants such as chlorine or sulfur in your water. Water that tastes salty could be caused by sulfate concentration levels and geographic tendencies. Bitter tasting water is often caused when the pH of your water is out-of-sync.

Chlorine / Musty Smell
Chlorine is one of the most commonly used water disinfectants use by water companies. However, it can leave an unpleasant taste in your water when it reaches your home. Water can also smell musty or sometimes fishy, this can be caused by iron and copper in your home's water.

Rusty or Blue / Green Stains
Iron is one of the most common types of problem water and can leave your fixtures and tubs with rust stains. Blue and green stains in your tubs and sinks are often caused by low pH levels in your water.
