Issues Common to Manassas Area Households
Manassas area residents get their water primarily the City of Manassas Water Treatment Plant (drawing from Lake Manassas) as well as from the Prince William County Service Authority.
Manassas households tend to have three areas of concern in terms of their water:
What to Look For In and Around Your Home:
Iron / Staining
Concentrations of iron will stain fixtures, tableware, and laundry with a rusty color that’s hard to remove. It will also leave deposits that can break loose from water piping that end up in your drinking water.
Acid Water / Corrosion
Entering water supply from industrial waste runoff, acid water has a metallic taste, erodes plumbing and appliances, and will leave bluish stains on fixtures, sinks, and clothes.
Hard Water / Scaling
Common in Northern Virginia city water, hard water contains small mineral particles like potassium, lime, and chlorine that leave white, scaly deposits on fixtures and appliances. Over time, this will destroy appliances as well as cost homeowners more money in laundry detergent and soaps.
