One of the first signs that something is off with your home’s water filtration is the presence of cloudy or murky looking tap water. This is caused by dissolved or suspended solids, naturally occurring or frequently seen from land disturbances like construction. Along with an unsettling color, contaminated tap water can sometimes have a strange odor or taste — all things that automatically red flag our senses.
Unfortunately, spotting water issues is not always so black and white. In fact, you may be seeing signs that your home requires water treatment, and not even know it yet!
Scaly Skin & Strawlike Hair – Before water makes it to your home, it’s disinfected with chemicals that can dry out your skin and hair. In addition, public water supplies often pump out hard water, which prevents soap and shampoo from lathering and rinsing away, leaving a pesky film behind.
Stiff Linens – Towels, bedding and even clothing losing their soft allure? There’s a good chance your water is filled with dissolved minerals that are becoming entangled in the fibers. These minerals can cause detergent to adhere to your linens as well, hardening and dulling them as they tumble dry.
Sneaky Stains – Iron and other minerals in your water can cause staining in your bathtub, toilet and sink. Stains that are extremely difficult to remove — might we add! If you feel like you’ve been struggling to get that pearly white shine lately, water treatment might be your answer.
Spotty Residue – Whether you’re cleaning the furniture, the car, or even the dishes, hard water spots can strike anywhere. In short, dissolved minerals are present when washing, and when the water dries they leave behind a stain. Usually hard water stains appear dark and discolored, but some minerals can also cause orange, blue or green staining as well.
