Bad Tasting Water
Does your water have an unpleasant taste?
Improve the taste of your water with Culligan.
Before your water enters your home or office, it can pick up bad tasting contaminants - from private wells, miles of underground utility pipes or even the local municipal water source itself. Many municipalities add chlorine to offset the problems caused by these contaminants, but this only makes your water taste worse! You may not be able to see these contaminants, but when you taste the water, something is obviously not right.
Common water taste problems include –
A sour, salty, bitter or metallic taste can be a sign of high levels of total dissolved solids (TDS) in your water, normally chlorides, sulfates and bicarbonates. Signs of TDS water problems include:
- A sour, salty, bitter or metallic taste due to total dissolved solids (TDS)
- A "bleachy" taste due to chlorine added in by municipalities
- A musty, woody taste due to organic contaminants like algae
- A soapy or chemical taste due to contaminated private wells
