Rust is often found in water that has higher iron concentrations than normal, caused by corrosion of iron or steel pipes. This makes for water that not only smells bad and looks unclean, but that’s outright dangerous to drink. Plus, it can stain almost anything it touches, including your skin, sinks, tubs, toilets, and clothes. If you have rusty water, our water experts will assess your situation and recommend a filtration solution to remove it.
The presence of a foul odor resembling rotten eggs is highly unpleasant, and unfortunately, quite common, particularly for those who rely on well water. While the source of the smell could be your water heater or water softener, it’s more often a result of sulfur seeping into your water supply or the bacterial growth in your groundwater—both of which can lead to pipe corrosion and costly repairs. If you have smelly water, we can install a filtration system that can remove up to 99% of the odor-causing contaminants from it, returning it to its normal, healthy, scent-free state.
Staining or scaling on your sink, shower curtains or doors, or other surfaces touched by water is a sign of hard water. Water that is “hard” is full of dissolved minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron, which can make your dish-ware unsightly, leave an unpleasant taste in your drinking water, and result in pipe buildup if left unchecked. It also affects laundry, making clothes feel stiff and dingy, and can make showers and baths uncomfortable. If you have hard water in Michigan, we can recommend a water softener to soften all of the water that enters your home.
If your water has an unpleasant taste, there could be multiple underlying issues. In Michigan, public water treatment facilities use chlorine to decontaminate water, which can leave a chemical taste, whereas a metallic taste suggests that metals like iron, lead, mercury, or arsenic have seeped into your water supply. If your water tastes bad and has a rotten egg smell, hydrogen sulfide is likely the cause. With our expertise, we can recommend a custom solution to resolve these issues, so that you can avoid damage to your pipes, and safeguard your health.
Water contaminants are more common than most people think. Chemical elements like chlorine or disinfectant byproducts could remain in your drinking water long after it has left municipal facilities, while minerals like arsenic and lead can seep into your water through the ground or through old, corroded pipes. Moreover, pesticides and fertilizers, including PFAS/PFOS/PFOA, can also get into your water, leading to potentially serious health effects. If you have contaminated water, we can recommend a custom home water filtration system that's designed with your water needs in mind.
