Common Water Problems

Here in the Des Moines community, a variety of factors can affect how water tastes, smells and feels. That's why we test your water before we recommend how to treat it properly. Here are a few of the problems we commonly see and treat.

Hard Water

Hard Water

Hard water dries out skin and makes hair brittle. It causes soap scum in tubs and showers and spots on faucets and fixtures. It also causes scaling in appliances, which results in less efficiency and costly repairs.

Chlorine taste or smell

The taste and smell of chlorine are unappealing and can also dry out your skin and hair. While municipalities use chlorine to disinfect the water supply, it should be filtered out before you use it to eliminate these effects.
