MINNETONKA, Minn. - July 15, 2014 - PRLog -- Hard water and soap scum are the two most common water problems faced by homeowners, according to a May, 2014 survey initiated by Culligan Water.

When asked to identify which water problems they faced on their home, homeowners from across the United States routinely ranked hard water spots as their most prevalent problem, followed closely by soap scum and lime scale.

The same minerals that result in hard water spots can also interact with detergents and soaps, causing soap scum and lime scale buildup. When water is hard, appliances have to work harder, clothing can appear dingy and soap scum builds up on shower walls. Water softeners use an ion exchange process to eliminate the minerals responsible for hard water.

Chlorine taste and smell ranked number three on the list of common home water problems, followed closely by rust stains. Chlorine is added to tap water by municipalities as a disinfectant, and rust is the byproduct of water with a high iron content. Both problems can be easily resolved with the use of an in-home water filter from Culligan.

The biggest home water problems identified by the survey are as follows (listed in descending order of importance):

    * Hard Water Spots – 46 Votes

    * Soap Scum – 43 Votes

    * Chlorine Taste/Smell – 28 Votes

    *  Reddish Brown Rust Stains – 26 Votes

    * Blue-Green Acid Stains – 7 Votes

    * Sulfur/Rotten Egg Smell – 4 Votes

Culligan Water has a variety of home water filters capable of treating each of these common home water problems. For more information, visit: www.culliganwater.com/residential/common_water_problems

About This Survey: The statistics above were gathered from a May 2014 Common Water Problems survey that was conducted by a third-party on behalf of Culligan Water - www.culliganwater.com  To be eligible to participate, respondents were required to be homeowners living within the United States.
