As your trusted Warwick plumber, we always strive to provide you with sound information about plumbing issues that can affect your quality of life. And one of those issues is water quality.

Water Quality Problems

The water that comes out of your faucet isn’t always good quality, unfortunately. What follows are some common water issues:

  • Hard water. Some areas in the U.S. have what we call “hard water,” or water that contains high levels of magnesium and calcium. These minerals can cause a build-up of deposits in your plumbing fixtures and pipes, as well as on appliances. And that results in a lot of wear and tear. At the same time, hard water isn’t good for your health. It can cause dry, itchy skin, brittle hair and nails, and according to some studies, even contribute to heart disease.
  • Hydrogen sulfide. When your water contains hydrogen sulfide, it smells and tastes like rotten eggs. Though this isn’t believed to be bad for your health, it’s definitely unpleasant, plus, it can cause more corrosion of your pipes.
  • Acidic water. Acidic water corrodes metals out of your plumbing system, resulting in blue and green water stains and corroded piping.
  • High levels of manganese react with hot water and air, creating brown stains. This is usually a problem when washing dishes or clothes.
