Why Does My Water Smell?

Ideally, pure water has no color or odor. You may get some slight smell or taste if minerals or chemicals have been added during a purification process. However, there are common problems you should investigate if your water has a distinctly unpleasant smell. Not only is poor smelling water difficult to drink, but it may be dangerous to you and your family.

How Does Hard Water Affect Hair?

One of the biggest concerns people have with hard water is the effect it has on their hair. Some people can’t figure out why the texture of their hair has changed, even though they are using the same products. Sometimes people don’t notice the difference that hard and soft water has on their hair until they travel to another city with different water. And it’s truly a marked difference.


What is a Boil Advisory?

A boil-water advisory is issued by water quality authorities to users of a water supply system when it is or could be contaminated by pathogens, or when there is a system failure shown by the loss of pressure. While a loss of pressure does not mean a water source has been contaminated, it does mean there is a possibility from pathogen intrusions through a leak. A boil water advisory should always be taken seriously as consuming any contaminated water could lead to illness. People at higher risk of becoming ill include the elderly, infants, young children or those with compromised immune systems.
