High Iron Water Smelly Water Chlorine Water

Common water problems in Washington

Chlorine water problems

Municipalities often use chlorine to disinfect municipal water supplies, leaving it safe to drink but with a strong smell and taste. Many factors can impact the strength of the chlorine smell - the distance between the public water source and your house, the temperature of the water and how long it's been exposed to air.

Common chlorine water problems include:

  • A "bleachy" or swimming pool smell
  • A bitter, metallic or disinfectant like taste
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Brittle, damaged hair

High iron water problems

Iron enters the water supply from a variety of sources - the soil around private wells, corrosion in the pipes themselves and organically occurring reactions with elements in the water.

Common high iron problems include:

  • Rusty, red-brown stains on your fixtures, sinks and tubs
  • Rusty stains or residue on laundry
  • Yellow, brown, red or orange-colored water
  • Metallic tasting water
  • Certain foods prepared in water turning black -potatoes and teas are commonly affected

Smelly water problems

Before your water enters your home, it can pick up smelly contaminants - from the soil around private wells, miles of underground utility pipes or even the local municipal water source itself. You may not be able to see these contaminants, but as soon as you turn on the tap or lift a glass to your face, something is obviously not right.

Common water odor problems include:

  • A "rotten-egg" odor due to hydrogen sulfide in the soil near your well
  • A musty, woody smell due to organic contaminants like algae or total dissolved solids (TDS)
  • A "bleachy" smell due to chlorine added in by municipalities
  • A soapy or chemical smell due to contaminated private wells
