Why Should You Test Your Drinking Water?

More than one million homes are served by private water supplies (wells, springs, or cisterns) in Pennsylvania. Homeowners using this type of water supply should consider having it tested because unlike public water systems, private water supply testing is the voluntary responsibility of the homeowner, surveys indicate that about half of private water supplies have never been tested, and that same half fails at least once drinking water system test.

Many pollutants found in private water systems have no obvious symptoms and can only be detected through laboratory testing. Water testing provides vital information to document the quality of your drinking water. Data from previous tests may be necessary if you ever need to prove in court that a nearby land use has damaged your drinking water quality.

Drinking Water Systems

After testing your water, it’s important to equip your home with the right systems to ensure your water is safe to drink and use. Equipping a reverse osmosis drinking water system is one of the best ways to clean your water supply. Reverse Osmosis used the pressure from a household tap and forces water through a semipermeable membrane. This membrane separates the water at the molecular level. The membrane acts like a filter, assuring the reverse osmosis water has substantially reduced impurities and dissolved solids. This cleaner, more refined water is then stored in a holding tank, ready at your convenience. It may sound technical, but osmosis is a natural, organic phenomenon, a process that occurs in nature on a continuous basis. Vegetation, like trees, plants and flowers attain their nutrients by using osmosis to draw water from the soil. Humans have simply learned how to reverse this natural process to remove impurities and contaminants from water supplies everywhere.
