- Reduce soap scum and residue build-up on showers, tubs, and sinks, saving cleaning time and costs by up to 70%.
Increase water efficiency
- Achieve up to 30% water efficiency by reducing scale build-up with filtered water for your laundry, plumbing, and appliances.

Do you face some of the water problems listed below, but do not know the causes of the problems?
Read on for some explanations, causes, and advice on what you can do to resolve them.
Chlorine Taste and Odor
Chlorine taste and odor are caused by compounds containing chlorine added to municipal water supplies.
These compounds can cause odors and taste that many people find objectionable. It also affects the taste of food and beverages.
All of the 3M Clean Water Solutions drinking water systems are tested and certified to effectively reduce chlorine taste and odors.
Off-taste or poor-tasting water can take many forms and have many causes.
Deterrence from drinking water due to bad taste affects the taste of food and beverages.
Most contaminants causing off-tastes can be reduced by installing any of the 3M drinking water systems under the kitchen and/or bathroom sinks. You can even reduce the presence of these contaminants by using the 3M Advanced Whole House Filtration System to improve the taste of all of your water.
The natural formation is due to water in contact with the rock in the Earth’s crust.
Causes white scaling and water spotting on glassware and can also cause damage to appliances, clothing, and even the pipes in the walls of your home.
Reducing the hardness in your water will help keep your hot water appliances running at high-efficiency levels. 3M brand water softener systems are an effective way to reduce the presence of hardness in your household water.
The higher the concentration of hardness chemicals in your water, the more white scale you will notice on the ends of faucets and other fixtures.
This scale is not easily cleaned with water and requires more aggressive cleaning chemicals to clean off your fixtures. Scale can also develop in appliances, pipes, and in your water heater, possibly decreasing the lifespan of these costly appliances and plumbing fixtures.
3M has a selection of filters with scale inhibitors. Contact us for a suitable filter for scaling problems.
Cloudy water may be caused by the presence of suspended particles in water, or simply attributed to dissolved air (micro-bubbles).
If a glass of cloudy water clarifies over time from the bottom of the glass upwards, it usually indicates micro-bubbles. However, if it clarifies over time, from the top down, or does not clear at all, this may indicate the presence of suspended particles.
3M Advanced Whole House Filtration System can effectively reduce the presence of suspended particles, clarifying the water before it reaches your faucet.
Presence of copper in the water. When pH is below 7, water is considered acidic. Acidic water causes damage to the insides of pipes, resulting in the release of copper from copper pipes.
Causes blue/green staining on white fixtures and clothing. Low pH can lead to long-term pin-hole leaks in piping.
3M backwash filtration system series models with calcite media can raise the pH of water, effectively reducing damage and staining.
Indicates the presence of iron in the water.
Typically not a health concern, but most find it very annoying and hard to clean.
Some levels of iron can be effectively treated by installing a 3M water softener series model: for some homes with higher concentrations of iron, our 3M iron reduction filtration series models would be prescribed.
Presence of Manganese in water.
Manganese is rare and is quite a nuisance. Like iron, manganese is an element of the Earth’s crust. When found, it is not unusual to also find iron present in the water.
3M iron reduction filtration series models may provide a solution for some manganese problems.
Rotten Egg Smell
Caused by the presence of hydrogen sulfide gas in the water. Hydrogen sulfide gas is naturally occurring.
It can cause very objectionable smells and can even damage copper pipes and other metal fixtures due to the corrosive nature of hydrogen sulfide.
A special test is required to confirm the presence of hydrogen sulfide. If it is present in your water, one of our 3M Iron Reduction Filtration Systems is a good solution.
Home and Health
3M water filters provide you and your family with cleaner, clearer, better-tasting water throughout your entire home every day.
A water filter installed in your home not only ensures that you can enjoy clear tasting water straight from the tap but also protect your appliances from scale build-up that reduces the energy efficiency of your appliances.
Chlorine and lead can be found in our water supplies. Refer to the table below to find out the potential health effects and remedies to reduce its presence in your drinking water. It’s your right to drink clean, and drink healthy.
How does it enter drinking water?
Many water treatment operations add Chlorine to drinking water as part of the water treatment process and to kill microbes and bacteria in swimming pools.
Lead enters drinking water supplies from the corrosion of household plumbing systems (pipes, solders, fixtures).
What are the potential health effects?
- Chlorine itself usually does not present major health concerns; however, it does affect water taste and odor.
- Chlorine does react with other substances present in water to produce disinfection by-products, such as Trihalomethanes (TTHM).
- Some people who drink water containing TTHM in excess of the EPA’s standard over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system. They may also have an increased risk of getting cancer.
- Lead is a neurotoxin that accumulates in soft tissues and bones.
- Infants, children, and pregnant or nursing women are at the greatest risk of lead exposure.
- At relatively low levels of exposure, these effects may include:
i) Interference with red blood cell chemistry.
ii) Delays in normal physical and mental development in babies and young children.
iii) Slight deficits in attention span.
iv) Impaired hearing.
v) Decreased learning abilities in children.
vi) Slight increases in blood pressure in some adults.
How can it be reduced in drinking water?
- Filter your water.
- Look for an NSF-certified drinking water filtration system that is certified to reduce chlorine taste and odor and/or TTHM.
- 3M Clean Water Solutions drinking water systems are NSF certified to reduce chlorine taste and odor.
- The 3M™ Advanced Drinking Water System also reduces TTHM.
- Filter your water.
- Look for an NSF-certified drinking water filtration system that is certified to reduce lead in drinking water.
- Only use cold water for cooking and drinking: hot water leaches more contaminants from pipes and plumbing into the water.
- Flush pipes before drinking: the longer water sits in a home’s pipes, the more lead it can contain. Let the water run until it gets as cold as possible: anywhere from 30 sec to 2 min – before using.
