Private Well Water
Do you have municipal or well water? When was the last time you tested your well water. Well water can change and should be tested periodically to ensure that the quality has not changed. Most pollutants in water you cannot taste, smell or see. The water appears to be clear and clean but, may be tainted with harmful pollutants or impurities that you may be sensitive to. Most water chemistry is natural and sometimes manmade pollutants enter your supply which allows for sudden changes. If your health has changed you should test your water again to ensure it is not contributing to your health issues. Periodic testing is strongly recommended.

Lead can enter drinking water through corrosion of plumbing materials, especially where the water has high acidity or low mineral content that corrodes pipes and fixtures. Homes built before 1986 are more likely to have lead pipes, fixtures and solder. However, new homes are also at risk: even legally “lead-free” plumbing may contain up to eight percent lead.
