If you aren't completely happy with the quality of your tap water, look into water treatment options offered by Eastern Drill. Water Treatment is important for consistent quality in the water you and your family uses for drinking, bathing, and cooking. Water can contain minerals, pharmaceuticals, bacteria, and can vary widely in acidity. Highly acidic water may dissolve the lining in lead pipes, and deliver it right to your faucets. Late last year researchers at the U.S. Geological Survey suggested that the same corrosivity that contaminated the Flint, Michigan water supply with high levels of lead could affect hundreds of thousands of individual homes here in Connecticut. The study shows that 75 to nearly 85 per cent of private wells in Connecticut could contain corrosive groundwater... it all depends on the pH levels. Deeper wells tend to be less acidic than shallow wells. Water with low pH reacts with lead in old pipes, dissolves the metal, and delivers traces of it to the tap.
In private dug wells, rodents and animals getting into the well cause bacterial contamination.Whether you obtain your water from a municipal water supply or a dug well on your property, water purity can only be determined by testing with a reputable company.
