Tips for Dealing With Cloudy Water

August 18, 2020

There are few things more refreshing than a clear, cool glass of water on a hot day in Ramona. If you fill your glass and find that the water is cloudy, though, this can certainly give you pause before you slake your thirst. Fortunately, most cloudy water isn’t harmful, meaning that no extra measures need to be taken. Just to be on the safe side, though, the plumbing experts at Marklein Plumbing offer these tips to help solve your cloudy-water problems.

Air in the Water

In a majority of cases, cloudy water is caused by tiny air bubbles that have formed in the water supply. Most often, this occurs when air is introduced into the supply lines, either by accident or for a specific purpose. This can happen on a micro level if air is introduced into a supply line for one of your home’s fixtures. On a macro level, air can enter the main water supply for your home, causing all of your fixtures to produce cloudy water.

To ensure that the cloudiness you see is simply dissolved air, we recommend that you let a glass of water sit undisturbed for a few minutes to see if the cloudiness goes away. If it does, you know that there is no risk to you or your family.

Other Causes

Although most cloudy water is totally harmless, there are some instances when you’ll want to use caution. Occasionally, cloudy water can be symptomatic of some type of debris that has gotten into your water. If you notice sediment on the bottom of your glass of water, you’ll know that there’s more than air that’s causing your water to be cloudy.

In this instance, it’s a good idea to call your water supply company so that they can check for leaks. If no leaks are found, you’ll want to call Marklein Plumbing to check on your home’s water supply, including your water heater, to see what might be causing the problem.
