Do you know what could be in your water?

Municipal Water Supply


Chlorine:

A sanitizing agent addd to water supplies to insure safe drinking water.

Effect:
  • Chlorine affects the taste and odor of water, as well as food and beverages made with it. High levels can be drying to the skin and hair, can gray laundry and can even fade colored hair.

Cyst:

Parasites such as cryptosporidium parvum and giardia lamblia found in some municipal supplies are resistant to chlorine.

Effect:
  • Stomach related illnesses, which can be more acute with deficient immune systms common with babies and the elderly

Lead:

A soluble metal that leaches into water supplies from lead main water feeds, lead solder used in plumbing prior to 1987 and brass fixtures that leach lead.

Effect:
  • Known health related and devlopmental problems, especially in infants and children.

Hardness:

Excess calcium and magnesium in the municipal supply

Effect:
  • Hardness forms a scale build-up that reduces the efficiency and life expectancy of heating and plumbing systems and fixutres. Hardness also makes cleaning more difficult, requiring additional cleaning products. Hardness also dries out skin and hair.

Well Water Supply


Chemicals and Bacteria:

Well water quality can vary over time. Well water can be affected by animal waste, chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides that enter into ground water supplies from sources such as runoff from local farms, industries, land fills and from lawn treatment products.

Effect:
  • Chemicals and bacteria can cause a variety of health concerns that range from an upset stomach to more severe illnesses -- like liver and kidney diseases, central nervous system problems -- and can increase the risk of cancer.

Soluble Metals:

A portion of the earth's crust is made up of metals. When it rains, the acid content in rain water carries these metals into water supplies as it percolates through the earth.

Effect:
  • Excess metals -- such as iron -- create staining of of plumbing fixtures and other areas where water comes in contact, i.e., toilets, tub/showers, diswashers, washing machines, sidewalks, etc.

Acidic Water:

Low pH in water.

Effect:
  • Acidic water aggressively attacks plumbing distribution systems. If left untreated, leaks can occur and fixture finishes may deteriorate.
