Is your water safe from microbiological contaminants?
Water may be deemed unsafe (non-potable) for many reasons, especially due to the presence of microbiological contaminants in the water. Causes include leaks in cracked pipes, agricultural run-off, malfunctioning septic systems, animal waste, etc.
Microorganisms such as E. coli, Legionella, Cryptosporidium, Giardia Lamblia (Beaver Fever) and many others, may be contaminating your water supply. Chemical processes such as chlorination, and physical processes such as UV treatment are options to treat your water.
