As we all know, water is essential for our survival. The consensus is that most humans cannot survive more than three days without water. Today, most of us get our drinking water from municipal sources, and while municipal suppliers generally do a good job of purifying the water we drink, when it comes out of our taps, it is not purified to its optimal level.
That’s because only about 1% of water is used for drinking purposes, making it cost-prohibitive for municipal suppliers to treat water to optimal drinking quality standards. Additionally, removing hardness from water is also costly, and consequently, most municipal water systems do not treat water for hardness but leave that task up to the homeowner.
As the water essential for our survival constantly cycles and comes into contact with other matter, it picks up contaminants. And this is true of both surface and groundwater.
- Surface Water: This is the water found in rivers, creeks, lakes, and reservoirs. It frequently becomes contaminated with impurities such as nitrates or animal waste from livestock or fungicides, pesticides, and herbicides. From industrial sites, it can pick up arsenic and detergents, among other contaminants.
- Ground Water: This is the water that has percolated through different layers of the earth, through clay, limestone, and shale, picking up on the way impurities like radioactivity, sodium, iron, calcium, magnesium, and hydrogen sulfide.
Whether you get your water from a municipal supplier or a private source, such as your own well, these are some of the more common water problems you may encounter.
- Iron: The presence of iron in your water can stain plumbing fixtures and laundry and give your water a musty odor and a metallic taste.
- Cloudy water: This is caused by sand or silt in the water that is common in private wells or caused by breaks in municipal water lines.
- Bad taste and odor: The cause can be chlorine in municipal water, or decaying organic matter in surface water. A rotten egg smell indicates the presence of hydrogen sulfide in your water.
- Acidity: A blue-green staining on plumbing fixtures or a tint in the water comes from copper pipes reacting with acidic water.
