Be aware of how home tap water is tested. It will reveal what contaminants are in the water.
It’s always a smart move to find out what the family is really drinking when it pours a glass of water from the kitchen or bathroom sink. While the water may look good, smell OK and taste OK, unfortunately, this does not guarantee that it is OK. In addition, even with low levels of what the government considers to be acceptable pollution, the cumulative effects of drinking bad water may cause serious health problems; problems that could well be avoided by using water distillers.
The very basic of the most basic tests to see if water is OK is the smell and taste routine. There’s a bit of a process to this, in that when the water is poured into the glass, the glass needs to be covered for a few minutes. Then, take off the cover and smell and taste it. There are times a disinfectant smell will waft up into the nose – a sure sign bleach/chlorine is in the water. The sad news is that even if the smell is not present, the chlorine is, because that is how most water plants treat their water. This is a deadly toxin if ingested over long periods of time.
There are home testing kits that some people prefer. They’re not too expensive and the test will show the presence of chlorine and reveal how hard the water happens to be. Having hard water means there is a lot of calcium and magnesium in the water. If it builds up in the taps and pipes in a home and in the water heater, what does it do internally to the person drinking it?
Some test kits, which are a bit more expensive, will test to see if there are bacteria, nitrates and even E coli. What kit is purchased largely depends on the water source for the home; tap or well. If water distillers are used, there is no need to test the water, as they produce the freshest and cleanest water next to Mother Nature.
Those who still have questions about what happens to be lurking in their water can actually go online and Google the search string – local drinking water information – or words to that effect. The research results returned should provide information on the drinking water in the area requested. This isn’t a guarantee that those searching will find out all they need to know about their tap water, but, it’s a start.
The government tests water in much the same way a homeowner would if they bought a water testing kit, except the results are far more comprehensive and they search for more chemicals. Unfortunately, the cost of having the government test home tap water frequently enough to stay on top of problems is prohibitive for most families. However, the cost of using water distillers more than pays for itself over time.
