Home Water Test
Posted by Administrator on 12/14/2009
One of the most common sources of toxic metals, pollutants, bacteria,
and fungi come from home water or well water. Even though foods
saturated with artificial chemical food additives are a source of many
body pollutants at the root of human disease, one of the most common and
prolific sources of man-made chemicals polluting the human body come
from our drinking water.
The question you still may ask, why should I get my water tested?
The answer to this question depends on several factors. It concerns your
health and the health of your family, so you need to know some basic
In addition to illness, a variety of less serious problems such as
taste, color, odor and staining of clothes or fixtures are signs of
possible water quality problems. Other things to think about include the
nearness of your water well to septic systems and the composition of
your home?s plumbing materials.
Regardless of your water source, here are two situations that may
require testing. Do you suspect lead may be in some of your household
plumbing materials and water service lines? Most water systems test for
lead as a regular part of water monitoring. These tests give a
system-wide picture, but do not reflect conditions at a specific
household faucet. If you want to know if your home?s drinking water
contains unsafe levels of lead, have your water tested. Testing is the
only way to confirm if lead is present or absent. Some faucet and
pitcher filters can remove lead from drinking water. If you use a filter
to remove lead, be sure you get one that is certified to remove lead.
Whether you live in the country and drink from well water or live in
an urban area downstream from an industrial area, it is prudent to have
your home drinking water tested for chemicals you may be exposed to
daily. The average person uses 72.5 gallons of water a day. But is that
water safe? Water testing is expensive, so make sure you know what to
test for and when to do it. Water testing is a simple way to design
future solutions for the health and safety or yourself, your family, and
your pets. Remember to test your water every year for total coliform
bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids and pH levels, especially if
you have a new well, or have replaced or repaired pipes, pumps or the
well casing.Advertising LinksUnofficial-republicanhq
