Do you know what’s in your water? Down to a scientific level? Whether your water comes from a municipal source or you get well water, it’s a good idea to have your water tested every so often by a professional water company like EcoWater. It’s not hard for water to become contaminated from any number of pollutants or microorganisms, so if you test your water on a regular schedule, you can always be assured that your water is safe to drink. And if it isn’t, you can start taking measures to rectify the situation. Let’s take a moment to examine the reasons for testing in greater detail.
Chemicals are a part of our lives.
We live in a world dominated by chemicals. Even if you strive to live an all-natural existence, the same certainly isn’t true of everyone in your area who shares the same water source. If these chemicals permeate the ground and end up in your tap water, then you end up ingesting them, which can be hazardous to your health, depending on quantity and frequency. Get the peace of mind you deserve by testing your water to ensure it is safe to drink.
Low local government safety thresholds.
Most local governments have a minimum water safety level, but what they consider safe may not correspond to your own personal feelings on the matter. They most likely allow for an “acceptable” level of different metals, minerals, chemicals and microorganisms. When you get your water tested by someone like the pros at EcoWater, you can clearly see if your water fails, meets or exceeds the minimum standards set by your local government.
Contamination isn’t always obvious.
It might seem like your water is safe when you smell it or taste it. But most of the pollutants you have to worry about don’t have a smell or taste that is immediately obvious. As a result, you could find yourself drinking glass after glass — day after day — of water that may not be truly safe for you. So don’t just assume your water is fine based on its sight, taste and odor— have your water professionally tested to ensure the safety of everyone in your home.
Half of private water wells are contaminated.
If your house’s water supply is fed by a private system, you have a one in two chance that the water is contaminated. In fact, a recent Penn State study shows that fifty percent of private water systems cannot pass at least one drinking water safety standard. Routine testing can help ensure that your private water system is providing you with clean, potable water.
