Do you test your drinking water every year? The National Ground Water Association recommends that private well owners test their drinking water annually for bacteria, nitrates, and any other contaminants that are known to be of concern in your area.
Is your drinking water safe if it comes from municipal water sources? Public water is tested regularly at the source, but does not account for toxins that accumulate in outdated plumbing systems. Lead and copper from plumbing fixtures, and hexavalent chromium from degraded corrosion inhibitors, can be introduced into your tap water.
