Water Treatment is important for consistent quality in the water you and your family uses for drinking, bathing, and cooking. 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. Lead is not the only contaminant – 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. Water that is high in minerals may cause soap scum to form on your fixtures or leave stains on your porcelain. These minerals that make your skin and hair dry also clog pipes. "Hard" water can be corrected by water treatments and you will find that you use less soap and detergent when washing and your laundry is more thoroughly clean as a result. Once your home's water supply has been tested, the professionals at Eastern Drill can discuss your home water treatment options.
