THE WATER QUALITY PROBLEM
For those on well water, it is critical to ensure that the well water is safe to drink as it is often not treated under legally mandated guidelines. Wells can breed bacteria which lead to the presence of sulfur and/or iron in the water, causing unpleasant taste and odor. Wells often have lead pipes or components that can cause the lead to seep in to the drinking water.
Clogged pipes, higher utility bills, shortened life for appliances, white residue on fixtures, dry skin, and dry hair are just some of the effects hard water has on you and your home.
