What causes the tiny air bubbles in my water?

Air bubbles occur most often when water is very cold and then warms up while in the property's interior piping. Colder water has the capacity to hold more air than warmer water. Therefore, air is released from the solution in the form of tiny bubbles as the water warms. At times, the water may be densely filled with air and appear cloudy. An easy way to check the cause of cloudiness is to fill a clear glass with the water, set it aside, and watch for changes. If the cloud rises from bottom to top, air is escaping as the water warms. If the cloud sinks from the top to the bottom, you may have a sediment problem.

If the condition persists, call Public Works at 512-401-5550 or email us, and a technician will be dispatched.
