The Best Wichita Water from the Water Filtration Experts at Culligan
Wichita and the surrounding area’s water sources come from a combination of both surface water and groundwater. The surface water in the area comes from the Cheney Reservoir, while the groundwater is from the Equus Beds. While each of these water sources have their benefits, they also each present certain drawbacks. Since your water can be coming from either, or both, of these sources, it is important to understand how the water from these sources could affect your Wichita home.
Surface water sources are sources whose water originates in reservoirs, lakes, rivers, and other water sources that are exposed to open air. Due to the exposure of these sources, microorganism growth, algal blooms, agricultural runoff, and pollution can all effect the quality of the water. While the municipal treatment plants will filter out any noticeable particulates and bacteria, there can be microscopic contaminants that make it through their filters. In addition, the contaminants that have been sitting in the water can affect the taste and smell of the water, even though it was treated, and make it unpleasant to drink.
Groundwater sources are those that are serviced by underground wells and aquifers. These sources don’t have to deal with many contaminants and even go through a natural filtering process as water seeps through the layers of earth, but they are very susceptible to making the water harder. Hard water is water that contains a high concentration of minerals, which can cause problems throughout the home. If you notice white buildup around your plumbing fixtures, bad tastes or smells in your drinking water, or rust-colored stains in your sinks and tubs, you may have hard water in your home.
