Other Common Water Problems in Omaha
Acidic Water – Water with a low pH factor (less than 6.5) can be highly acidic and corrosive. If, for example, you notice a blue-green stain on your laundry, sinks or drains, chances are your water needs to be treated. Acidic water also can leach unhealthy levels of metal ions – such as lead, manganese, and copper – into your fresh water supply.
Excess Iron – How can you tell if there’s too much iron in your water? By the brown stains in your toilet or on your clothes…definitely not a pretty sight.
Chemical Contamination – This is the most serious of all water problems. Excess levels of radon, industrial waste, chlorine, and other chemicals can cause serious health issues…the kind that can readily be avoided.
