Most people assume that the quality of their drinking water is safe, as the municipality will test for dangerous chemicals and bacteria.
According to the Center for Disease Control, 90% of the population gets drinking water from public supplies. Despite local communities working hard to test and maintain safe drinking water. The reality is that your water could contain fertilizers, naturally occurring chemicals, and manufacturing compounds.
The best approach is to have a water test on your property at least once a year to ensure that everything is safe. We look at the benefits of having a test on your water and how you will be healthier from it.
Not knowing about the quality of your water is one of the worst mistakes you can make. Local communities work to keep the water supply clean, but these entities cannot screen for everything. The situation becomes complicated as systems around the country are getting older and more vulnerable to contamination.
In America, 63 million people are exposed to potentially hazardous water supplies and don’t know it. Getting a water test done annually ensures that you know about the safety and quality of the drinking water.
For example, the most notorious water contamination case is in Flint, Michigan where residents were drinking contaminated water. The city switched water supply sources to save money and ignored complaints from residents about the quality. These include cloudy, foul-smelling, and off-tasting water that created health issues (such as high levels of lead). The lack of response to these health concerns worsened the situation and the city had to find another water source.
When you have a test performed, you will know about the quality of your water. You will have peace of mind knowing that the water you are using is safe and reduces any adverse health effects. Don’t take the word of your local water company by not doing the test, but find out for yourself what is going on.

For example, contaminants in the water can cause skin problems such as itchy, dry skin, and rashes. You could have scalp itch or always feel dirty no matter how much you shower or bath. You may have assumed that all of these challenges were related to South Florida’s hot and humid weather. But, the issues could be from hard water that is causing a skin condition.
