The Lack of Well Water Regulations Can Haunt Homeowners

Although plenty of attention has been paid to water coming out of water treatment facilities, another common alternative hasn't received as much attention. Regulations and testing procedures in municipal plants are out-dated and less than adequate, but still they are in place to help make sure the water produced meets minimum standards. When it comes to private well water, though, no regulations apply, and many people fail to think about having tests run on their water sources. Imagine all of the millions of Americans that drink well water on a daily basis not knowing that it may contain contaminants of some type.

In the past, well water was considered to be the best source of fresh, clean water. You can even read stories describing early pioneers who hand dug wells and were thrilled with the water that ensued without treating it in any way. That was then, though, and this is now. Groundwater wasn't being polluted with all sorts of chemicals back then. There likely aren't many countries around the world that don't have a pollution problem of some sort.

You will definitely need to get the water tested in today's climate. Your family's safety should be foremost on your mind, prompting you to get the water from a well tested before drinking it. Before you drink it, it's important that you have it tested for toxins. What is supposed to be your next step?

Initially you need to find out what kind of contaminants you're dealing with. It's possible that you can already have a good idea of the problems. If the water coming out of your faucet is bad-tasting or bad-smelling, then you'll certainly have a problem on your hands. Every type of contaminant doesn't have the potential to cause health problems. For instance, hard water isn't going to hurt anyone, but it is going to clog pipes and pumps and cause you headaches somewhere down the line.

You can choose the best type of filtering system to get once you've determined the type of contaminants that you're dealing with. You will have the option of installing a device on every faucet that you have in your home. The alternative is a “point of entry” system that regulates all of the water coming into your home at the place where it enters the building. Each type of system has its pros and cons, so you'll need to take your situation into account and decide. Doc No. 34Sdlhgsdl -sds
