There’s a lot that can come between you and clean, pure water.
Here are some of the water quality issues you need to know.
The presence of arsenic in drinking water can lead to serious health issues. One in ten Maine wells contain it.
PFAS, PFOA, PFOS
These man-made chemicals remain in the environment for years and have been linked to certain cancers and endocrine disruption.
Radon + Uranium
Radon is a product of uranium breaking down. Both occur naturally, both are radioactive, and both can lead to serious health problems.
Chlorine, Chloramines, Fluoride
Public utilities frequently add chemicals like chlorine, chloramines, and fluoride to the public water supply. Great for the trip to your home, not so much once they get there.
Odor + Taste: Sulfur, Metallic, TDS
Does your water have a strange odor or taste? Maybe it smells like rotten eggs or metal, or maybe it tastes sweet, salty, or bitter. These causes may be why.
Hard Water, Iron, + Manganese
Hard water can adversely affect pipes, plumbing, appliances, and water heaters.
