Water Problems & Solutions
Click on one of the symptoms below to reveal a diagnosis of the problem and an Aquality Solution:
Hard Water Spots
Hard water causes calcium buildup, water spots and soap scum which makes cleaning a real chore. A water softener can remove the calcium and minerals from the water which makes for quicker cleaning. This means you’ll use less soap used and have a cleaner plumbing system. In fact, with soft water your skin and hair will be softer and smoother too.
Hard water can also ruin a good wardrobe. Minerals in the water dull the color of your clothes. A Purdue University study showed that clothes washed in hard water wear out up to 15% sooner than clothes washed with soft water. That same study showed that hard water causes colors to fade faster and white to darken sooner
Orange and rust colored water is caused by iron deposits in the water. The reddish residue stains the sinks, tubs and laundry and in some cases permanently.
Solution: Install a properly sized water softening system and/or an iron filtration system. Contact Aquality Solutions® at 1-855-MYAQUAHERO (692-7824) or by email for a free water test to determine if a water softener alone will do the job or if a separate iron filtration system is also needed.
Minerals in the water can stain and dull the color of your clothes. Water contaminants tend to collect in water using appliances causing them to wear out sooner too.
Solution: Yellow staining is caused by tannins in the water. Install a properly sized tannin removal unit. Contact Aquality Solutions® at 1-855-MYAQUAHERO (692-7824) or by email for a free water test to determine tannin levels and which tannin unit to install.
(Potentially one of three issues)
H2S Hydrogen Sulfuide
Iron/Sulphate Reducing Bacteria
Solution: These issues have different solutions that can be properly assessed by a professional at Aquality Solutions®. Contact Aquality Solutions® at 1-855-MYAQUAHERO (692-7824) or by email for more information and a free water test.
Bad Tasting Water
Bacteria Tainted Water
Solution: Aeration is the most reliable and efficient means of eliminating methane gas from your water supply. Contact Aquality Solutions® at 1-855-MYAQUAHERO (692-7824) or by email to help you decide which aeration system would work best for you.
Arsenic in the Water Supply
Arsenic is very difficult to detect without testing. It has no visible color taste or odor in water and can be there because of industrial waste, herbicide runoff or natural groundwater contamination.
Solution: Filtration and reverse osmosis are the primary means of treating water with an arsenic content. Your Aquality Solutions® dealer can suggest a system for your particular situation.
Lead in the Water Supply
Lead generally does not occur naturally in water. Industrial waste or other outside sources can affect lead content in your water.
Solution: Lead in water can be treated with filtration. Contact Aquality Solutions® at 1-855-MYAQUAHERO (692-7824) or by email to determine which system is right for you.
