During the cleaning, customers may notice some discoloration in their water and drops in water pressure. The discoloration results from the temporary disturbance of the water flow, which stirs up naturally occurring minerals that settle in water mains. Aquarion recommends customers store water in their refrigerators for drinking and cooking. Customers should also refrain from washing laundry if water is discolored. Prior to resuming use, customers should run their cold water faucets until the water appears clear.

For questions, please call Aquarion’s Customer Service Department at 1-800-732-9678.
