Common Water Problems
Here in the Phoenix area, 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 water problems we commonly see and treat.
Chromium 6, Arsenic, Nitrates, Nitrites, MTBE and TCE
Chromium 6, Arsenic, Nitrates, Nitrites, MTBE and TCE have all been in Arizona water news recently. They can lead to a variety of health issues. Over the last few years, cities from New River to Chandler, Phoenix to Mesa, and several in between, have reached or exceeded the MCL for Arsenic. According to the EPA, Arsenic may cause skin damage, problems with circulatory systems, and an increased risk of cancer.

Hard Water / Lime Scale
Hard water dries out skin and makes hair brittle. It causes soap scum / white film in tubs and showers, spots on faucets and fixtures, as well as etching and spotting on dishes and silverware. Hard water also causes scaling in plumbing and appliances, which results in less efficiency, reduced life cycles, and costly repairs. Other associated hard water problems include "dulling" and stiffening of laundry and having to work harder to clean bathrooms and kitchens. Our winter visitors commonly call water hardness build-up limescale.
