The public drinking water systems in the United States are safe, especially in comparison to tap water available in less developed areas of the world, but that doesn’t mean it’s perfect.
Tap water can be contaminated at the source or when it comes into contact with contaminants en route to your faucet.
To truly know what you’re drinking, it’s essential to invest in the right water system and get a residential water test.
Why should I get my water quality checked?
Drinking water comes from natural sources like rivers, lakes, and underground reservoirs.
Water may be exposed to everything from minerals leached from nearby rocks to fertilizers sprayed on adjacent fields.
Numerous parasites, viruses, and bacteria can cause serious illnesses and even widespread outbreaks if allowed to flourish in drinking water.
- salmonella and e. coli can make people sick, leading to symptoms such as gastrointestinal complications, neurological disorders, reproductive problems, developmental issues in children, and compromised immune systems.
