Do You Have Safe Drinking Water?
When your water smells like rotten eggs, leaves spots on your glasses, or tastes like salt you can bet there’s a problem with your H20. But it’s also the things we can’t see – bacteria, viruses, and chemicals – that can be the most hazardous to your health. Although you can be fairly confident that your water is safe, backed by the Safe Drinking Water Act for municipal water systems, it’s always a good idea to be sure that nothing dangerous lies in your drinking glass.
How do I tell if my water is safe?
If you’re testing at home turn on the tap in the morning. This water would have the highest amount of contaminants since it has been sitting in pipes overnight.
A simple rule-of-thumb is to trust your senses. If it smells, tastes or looks funny call your local water supplier and get your water tested today.
