Is Your Water Safe To Drink

Is Your Water Safe To Drink

Is the water you are drinking really safe for you?

Is your water safe? This is a question that many of us have had. As you have heard over the past few years many communities are having issues with unsafe drinking water. Now you may say that I am on city water and my water is good, just read the article from Detroit Link. Just because you are on city water does not mean that your water is safe to drink and you need to be concerned for the safety of your family.

There are many ways to find out if your water is safe for your family. I was elected official for my city at one time and the water department was under the city administration. We use to inform our citizens that at any time they could come into city hall and obtain a copy of the water quality report.

Florida water crisis

Here in Florida many of us that live in rural communities live on wells. In the larger cities most of the communities do have city water for the families. Florida water has been and always will be a major concern for its citizens. With so much development going on eventually we will run out of fresh potable drinking water. About ten years ago we went through a major drought and water was on every-one’s mind. Then came the rains and the water table aquifer came back up to standard. But with this fluctuation in the water table our water at our home went from pristine to sulfur tasting and smelly water. It was almost unbearable to drink.

Water filtration

Many homeowners in Florida have had to put their homes on either a water filtration system or a water softener program or both. These systems can be expensive to have installed and they can also be expensive to maintain. At our home we had to install a whole water filtration system in order for our family to have safe clean drinking water.

There are many different types of water filtration systems on the market. If you are like me I did my own system in order to save me thousands of dollars. The first system that I put in was a WaterBoss Whole House water system. Another system that I installed in one of my rental homes was this 3 stage whole house water filtration  system.  Also I have used in the past at one of my other homes was a Home Master  Artesian Full Contact Undersink Reverse Osmosis Water Filter System which worked fantastic for giving us good clean drinking water.
