Common Water Problems

In order to select which water treatment system you need, it is important that you identify which water problem(s) you are experiencing and what the proper plan of action is. Listed below are some of the most common drinking water problems experienced by families and businesses in Michigan.

Hard Water

Having hard water simply means that your water supply has an excessive amount of minerals in it. For example, too much iron or calcium in your water can make it “hard”. Having hard water can be detrimental due to the fact that it can cause buildup in your pipes, eventually reducing water flow. It can also cause rust stains and limescale.

Solve your hard water problems with one of Besco Water Treatment’s residential water softeners.

Rotten Egg Smell

Rotten Egg Smelling Water Problem

One of the most commonly reported water problems is the presence of hydrogen sulfide, or the “rotten egg” smell. This problem is not one that should be taken lightly, as it can cause extensive damage to your home’s pipes, and if left unchecked your water could be considered unsafe to drink.

Chlorine is one of the elements used when water is initially treated at a city plant, but its presence is unnecessary once it reaches your home. Too much chlorine will leave your water with an unwanted taste and smell, not to mention it may damage your clothes.
