While Public Water suppliers must regularly test for contaminants to ensure the water is safe to drink, samples are only taken from a handful of those supplied with the water.  In this process, the results of these tests can be misleading.  For example, houses built before 1991 often had lead components in the supply pipes.  Water flowing through these pipes could be contaminated with lead, but if these houses are not part of the small sample group, it could be undetected.  In other words, if supply lines on your property were soldered with lead and your water hasn’t been tested, you could be drinking potentially dangerous water.  Though your pipes could be labeled as "lead free", they can still contain up to 8% lead.

So, is your water safe?  All of these reasons can be a bit shocking.  Since water is something we use every day, and often take for granted, the thought of testing your water may have never even crossed your mind.   Once you decide to have your water tested, how often does it need tested and what does it need tested for?  While annual testing is recommended, depending on your home's geographic factors, other testing may be needed.

While we all hope that the water we are consuming is healthy, there are chances your water analysis could be positive for any of these pollutants.  If your tests conclude positive results, there are steps you can take to correct the issue or further analytical tests you can schedule to ensure your safety.
