Find out if your water
has harmful levels of these common contaminants:
- Lead: (world's only Ten Minute test for
Many homes and buildings have pipes and plumbing
fixtures that contain lead. Lead can leach from pipes
into household water, making its plumbing a major
source of water contamination and a potential source
of toxic lead poisoning. Lead is so toxic that even
very low levels may be dangerous.
Lead consumption and poisoning has been linked to
many serious illnesses, especially in young children
lead can harm mental and physical development and
may cause brain abnormalities, kidney damage and hypertension.
As with other water contaminants, the risk of lead
damage are much greater for children than for adults.
Families should be particularly concerned about the
health of the water supply.
Consumers should test lead levels at each faucet in
the home, especially if the plumbing fixtures could
be from the 1980's or older.
Chronic exposure to low levels of lead can result
in learning disabilities, muscle and bone disorders
and kidney damage in children under six. In the U.S.,
about 900,000 children aged one to five years old
have a blood lead level exceeding the level of concern.
Pesticides are deadly chemicals used to eliminate
weeds, insects and other harmful elements in crops.
Their pervasive use, however, has produced its own
harm. Now it is not uncommon to find pesticide contamination
in our drinking water.
Atrazine and Simazine are the two of the pesticides
most commonly found to contaminate drinking water.
More than 60 million pounds of these two chemicals
are introduced into the environment each year as herbicides,
and left to potentially leak into the soil, ground
water and the lakes and rivers that are drinking water
sources. They are so toxic that the EPA-mandated maximum
level is equivalent to less than one drop in a swimming
There are laws that require the regular testing of
community water supplies, but in practice, they are
Pesticides are linked in scientific studies to increased
cancer rates and chronic illnesses.
When animal and human wastes or field fertilizers
come into contact with water, they show up as nitrates
and nitrites. Both are serious contaminants because
they affect the very core of human life - birth -
and the development of your life.
A syndrome called blue-baby is caused by a too high
concentration of nitrates in drinking water. The young
are especially susceptible. In the worst cases, it
produces shortness of breath, which increases susceptibility
to illness and can cause heart attacks or even death.
You cannot see nitrates and nitrites in water. You
must test them. The National Pesticide Survey tested
1,349 community and domestic wells in every state.
Nitrates were detected in some 57% of domestic well
and 52% of community wells.
The consumption of Chlorine in very small
amounts most likely will not cause you serious harm.
However, there are by-products, including chlorophorm,
that chlorine produces when mixed with organic matter.
Studies have found that regular drinking of tap water
with high levels of Chlorine by products increases
the risk of some forms of cancer.
If the acidity of your water is too high,
corrosion can leach out lead from pipes as well as
damage your water supply system and water heater.
Lead was used extensively in plumbing until the 1980's.
Even low levels of lead have been linked to learning
disabilities in children and hypertension in adults.
So it is important to know if your pH level is corrosive.
Water hardness is primarily caused by calcium
and magnesium compounds. These chemicals are not easily
detected, but the numerous negative effects can be
unpleasant and costly.
Hard water causes scaling in pots and pans and prevents
soap from lathering. Calcium and magnesium build-up
may eventually damage plumbing and water heaters.
High levels of iron may give your household
water a metallic taste, cause a reddish or yellowish
color and also result in other water quality problems.
Iron-contaminated water can stain pipes, sinks, and
High levels of iron are especially common in well
