Water Quality Concerns
Have you ever wondered what’s in the water you drink? If not, then it may be time to start asking yourself that question. Unfortunately, millions of Americans drink from unsafe water sources every single year, which can lead to serious issues. Not only does poor water quality negatively affect the taste of your water, but it can also even make you sick, with vulnerable people like children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with health conditions at higher risk.
There are many potential contaminants and impurities that you might come into contact with from your home’s water. You can’t assume that it is safe and free from dangerous contaminants. One way to find out what exactly is in your water is through a free water quality test from our experts.
With our water quality tests, we identify contaminants in your water and can provide recommendations on how to get them out of the water you use for drinking, bathing, and cleaning in your home.
Public and Municipal Water Districts
Most people get their water from a public or municipal water district. These groups are responsible for treating the water to remove contaminants of serious concern, like the pathogens that cause cholera, typhoid, and norovirus.
Unfortunately, this involves treating the water you drink with disinfectants like chlorine, which can negatively affect water quality. Chlorine can cause your water to smell and taste bad and can sometimes cause health issues for sensitive populations.
Additionally, there are allowed levels of toxic contaminants according to water quality laws. Some of the contaminants that you might find in your water include:
- Heavy metals
While you might think that your water is safe, keep in mind that violations of the EPA’s water quality standards are incredibly common, meaning you might be exposed to unsafe levels of a wide range of contaminants. It’s essential to protect yourself and your family by removing these contaminants from your home’s water. You can get peace of mind by getting your water tested and installing water conditioning systems to address specific contaminants present in your water.
If you have water from a private well, your water may be even more contaminated than the water you would get from a public system. Well water isn’t treated by the local government, and well owners are fully responsible for removing impurities from their well water.
If you have a private well, you get your water directly from the groundwater. Groundwater can be contaminated by many different sources. Some contaminants to be concerned about in private wells include:
- Volatile organic compounds
- Heavy metals
- Toxic chemicals
- Radioactive chemicals
- Personal care products
If you have well water, then you likely need sophisticated water softening and filtration systems to remove these harmful contaminants from your water to make it safe for you and your family to use.
