The Basics of Well Water Treatment Systems
Although the majority of Americans get their water from public sources, there are millions who depend on privately owned wells for their well water. For those of us in Pennsylvania who get their water from wells, there are preparations that well water needs. Especially, to be suitable for drinking and bathing with.
Well Water Contamination Risks
Contamination is a constant threat. You should always make sure that your well water is safe to drink before allowing your family to consume it. Privately owned wells aren’t covered by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations, so they are the owner’s responsibility alone. In order to detect any possible contaminants, watch for unusual odors or discoloration in your well water. Try to find out if there is a history of contaminated water in the area. If there is, your water may require treatment. Without treatment, contaminated water may cause illness in your family.
Common contaminants in your area can include farms that use pesticides or livestock. It can also include improperly disposed oil or chemicals, gasoline, and septic tank spillage. Any kind of factory or facility nearby that could potentially pose a threat to your water should be taken very seriously. Especially if you have infants, young children, elderly, or sick family members who may be more sensitive to contaminated water.
How to Know if Your Well Water is Contaminated
The only sure way to know if your well water is safe to use is to test it. It should be tested once per year or more depending on the conditions of your surrounding area. If there is a history of contamination in your area but your water supply is currently uncontaminated, you should check it more often to ensure safe water. Reasons to get your water tested immediately include many reasons. These reasons include illness in the family, or changes in the color, taste, or smell of the water.
Well Water Filtration Systems
Installing a filtration system for your well water is the best way to eliminate pollutants. Pollutants like lead, bacteria, sediment, and more. You may notice a more pure taste and consistency after installing a filtration system for your well water. That’s a result of removing minerals and pollutants from the water to make it more suitable for in-home use.
Bacteria, chlorine, and sulfur are some of the most common pollutants that can be found in water. Water treatment will ensure completely safe drinking and bathing water. It will also make cleaning around the bathroom and kitchen much easier. Even when washing clothes you’ll notice a difference. You’ll be able to use less detergent to get your loads clean. Your pipes will contain less build-up, making them last longer.
Water softener installation is a straightforward process that will result in a far higher quality water coming out of your faucet. Especially in Pennsylvania where we have mineral rich water everywhere, a softener will improve your home’s water quality greatly. Your skin and hair will look and feel great after you shower with a more pure water supply. For your convenience and for your health, it’s a wise decision to install a water softening system for your home.
