WHAT'S IN YOUR WATER?
Bacteria (e.g., E. coli, Legionella), viruses, and parasites (e.g., Giardia, Cryptosporidium) can enter water supplies from sewage, animal waste, and natural sources, posing serious health risks.
Pesticides and herbicides from agricultural runoff, industrial chemicals (e.g., benzene, nitrates/nitrites), and household chemicals (e.g., pharmaceuticals, personal care products) can contaminate water sources.
Lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and chromium can leach into water from natural deposits, industrial discharges, or from household plumbing systems, especially in older homes with lead pipes or solder.
Hard water minerals like calcium and magnesium are naturally occurring but can cause scaling and affect water quality. Other minerals like fluoride, while beneficial in small amounts, can be harmful at high concentrations.
Naturally occurring radioactive substances like uranium or radon can be present in groundwater, posing health risks if consumed over long periods.
Chemicals used to disinfect water, like chlorine, can react with natural organic matter in water to form byproducts (e.g., trihalomethanes, haloacetic acids) that may have health implications with long-term exposure.
Testing your water is crucial for identifying harmful contaminants such as bacteria, heavy metals, and chemicals that could pose serious health risks. Knowing what's in your water allows you to take appropriate measures to remove these contaminants and protect your family's health.
Water Quality Improvement
A water test can help you understand the specific issues affecting your water's taste, smell, and appearance. This information is essential for selecting the right water treatment solutions to improve your water quality, making it more pleasant for drinking, cooking, and bathing.
High levels of minerals and other substances in water can cause damage to home appliances, such as water heaters, washing machines, and dishwashers, by building up scale and reducing efficiency. Testing your water can help you address these issues, potentially extending the lifespan of your appliances and saving you money on repairs and replacements.
Compliance and Safety
For well owners, regular water testing is necessary to ensure the water meets safety standards, as well water is not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) like municipal water. Even if you're on a municipal water supply, changes in water source, treatment processes, or aging infrastructure can affect water quality, making personal testing a wise precaution.
