Why Should I Have My Water Tested?

Your Drinking Water:

Your drinking water typically comes from a municipal water supply,  private well and/or spring. We tend to think water from a private well or spring is always clean.  However, if you live in North Central Florida all water comes from the same source, wells that are tapped into some underground source of water.

Exposure to contamination from natural source (sand, iron, limestone, arsenic, bacteria, viruses) is possible for all water -municipal supplies, private wells and/or spring water. Also, from man made sources (agricultural chemicals, industrial and animal waste – nitrates, leaching from landfills and septic tanks, lead, cadmium). The difference is the city monitors municipal water on a regular basis, while homeowners typically do not monitor their private water sources.

Studies Show

According the EPA more than 90% of municipal water systems in the USA meet EPA’s water quality standards. However, the National Academy of Sciences has found hundreds of other toxic contaminants in municipal water supplies. There is no requirement to test nor safe levels established by EPA for these.  Additionally, the National Academy of Sciences recognizes that disinfection by-products of chlorine such as Trihalomethanes (THM’s) and Haloacetic acids are harmful to people’s heath.

Once municipal water leaves the treatment plant it can be exposed to additional contaminants before it reaches your home due to breaks in pipes, aging and deteriorating pipelines.

Scientists at the National Academy of Sciences state that private wells and spring water carry the same contaminants as municipal water. Though, the EPA does not impose regulations on wells.

Some contaminants can pose a danger to you and your family’s health. Others can harm water using appliances, and stain fabrics, bathroom fixtures and more.
