Below is a list of common water problems experienced in the Cape Coral, Fort Myers and Southwest Florida areas. 


If your water has a ‘weak tea’ looking color to it, it can be caused by tannins. Tannins are created by the breakdown of organic material (leaves, bark etc) that gets into the water in your well. Tannins in your water causes the water to be a faintly yellowish to a tea-like color. The term organics refers to a large category of natural contaminants that are related to the decomposition of natural organic matter, such as plants and trees. Sometimes organics are called tannins, lignins, or humins and they are associated with tastes, odors and color. Organics are a possible indicator of surface water intrusion.

Aesthetically, tannins may make the water unappealing to drink and stain laundry, but they do not present a health hazard. We can eliminate this problem from your water and give you great tasting, clean, clear water.


Bacteria are microscopic organisms that are found just about everywhere. Most bacteria are harmless, but certain types can cause disease, sickness or other problems. Wells used for drinking water should be tested for the presence of coliform every one to two years.

Coliform bacteria can be plant or soil bacteria but this family of bacteria also includes pathogenic organisms. E coli bacteria come from the intestines of warm-blooded animals and represents a serious water quality problem. The water should not be consumed, and the source should be found and stopped. We have disinfection systems to rid your water of bacteria. We can take samples of your water to check for the presence of bacteria.

Hard Water

Hard water is one of the most common water problems. Hard water dries out skin and makes hair brittle. It causes soap scum in tubs and showers and spots on faucets and fixtures. It also causes scaling in appliances, which results in less efficiency and costly repairs.

Hard water is caused by the dissolved minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, that are found in the water. Hard water causes scale to build up and clog your pipes and other equipment that comes in contact with the hard water.

Hard water can reduce the life of hot water heaters, washing machines, dishwashers and other appliances. Have you ever noticed water spots on your dishes and glasses when they come out of the dishwasher? The spots are a result of the minerals in the hard water.

By using softened water, you will use less laundry detergent, bath soap and shampoo while reducing the spotting on glass and protecting your investment in your appliances. Call us at 239.458.5597 for more information on how you can soften your water.
