Well Water Filtration Can Remove Sediment, and Unpleasant Odors and Tastes from Water
Well water filtration can treat water that has obviously apparent problems. The water from wells can look cloudy or it can smell and taste unpleasant due to contaminants. Well water is especially prone to these issues because it is not subjected to the strict regulations that municipal water must follow, as mandated by the EPA. Since wells are typically privately owned, the EPA does not have the jurisdiction to regulate them. This is why it is essential that those who use private wells and think they might have water problems look into the benefits of well water filtration.
Well water can have very obvious contaminants that are seen, smelled, and tasted in the water. The most common culprits of this are sediment, which causes cloudiness, and sulfur, which causes the water to have a smell and taste akin to rotten eggs. But well water can also contain contaminants that are not detected so easily. Depending on where you live, there are a number of ways that the groundwater that feeds into your well might be contaminated. Some common sources of this contamination include:
- Lawn fertilizers and pesticides
- Manufacturing and industrial facilities
- Septic systems, either your own or your neighbors’
- Farms with livestock
- De-icers used on the roads in the winter
