Well Water Filtration Systems Can Enhance the Quality of Household Water
Well water filtration systems are customized solutions designed to remove a host of unwanted minerals, chemicals, and other contaminants that might be present in household water. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that public water supplies meet baseline quality standards to ensure a minimum level of safety, the EPA does not have the authority to regulate privately owned wells. Therefore, homeowners who rely on wells for their drinking water do not automatically receive this same peace of mind with regard to their water quality.
Certain waterborne contaminants make themselves known through offensive odors, visible particles, telltale stains, and unpleasant tastes, but others aren’t so readily apparent. Therefore, if you own a well, you might consider the area in its immediate vicinity to identify conditions that could possibly lead to water problems. For example:
- Are lawn fertilizers or pesticides used nearby?
- Is the well located near a road that is salted or sprayed with other de-icers in the wintertime?
- Have you or your neighbors ever disposed of household waste or motor oil in your backyards?
- Is the well situated downstream from a septic system?
- Is there livestock in close proximity?
In addition to the general area around your well, there are many other potential sources of groundwater contamination, including myriad agricultural, commercial, and industrial activities that are taking place in your community, which you may or may not be aware of.
To find out exactly what’s in your well water, it’s best to consult with a water expert who is familiar with the local geographic area. The results of a professionally performed in-home water test can zero in on specific contaminants in your well water so that it can be effectively treated before it flows through the tap for use by your family. One possible solution is a whole house problem-solving filtration system that is customized for your home.
