Living in the city, means you have a water supply from a water treatment plant. Living in the country, you rely on a well for your water supply to the home. In rural areas, a well could be dug 90 foot, 150 foot, or even 400 foot into the ground, for a water supply to be reached for your home. Well water does require continued testing, at least every few years, to determine if your water is safe, and of a quality type.
Depending on the particular housing set up, you water could come from the well to a holding tank in the home, or a holding tank outside underground near the home. Additionally, along with wells, many homes in rural areas depend on springs and holding areas for water for all their personal water needs. All of these situations require different types of water treatment, for the best possible water quality.
Lead can be a very risky situation in the home, and can be found in water. Lead leads to problems for children and adults, with situations causing high blood pressure, certain types of cancer and anemia as well as mental deficiencies. A simple water test, that you can complete yourself, is going to tell you if your well water is high in lead. A Well Water Treatment system can lower the levels of lead in the water.
Additionally a well water treatment system can lower the levels of salt, heavy metals, iron and herbicides or pesticides in the water. If you live in a rural area, or with a water supply near an abandoned mine, you may test your water and find various contaminants that could be hazardous to you and your families health. A well water treatment system can put your mind at ease, so you are controlling what you are putting into your body and lowering the potential health hazards.
A well water treatment system in a holding area could include the use of a UV light to kill algae or bacteria in the water. A well water treatment system could include the use of treating the water in the home, before it is dispersed anywhere in the home using a salt treatment method, chlorine treatment or a filtration system, depending on what you find when you test the water from your well.
A well water treatment system is designed not only to treat those problems you are faced with right now in your well, but also a variety of potential hazards that could arise in the future. For example, with bacteria, you prevent typhoid, dysentery, and gastrointestinal problems associated with bacteria. With high salt and nitrogen in the water, a well water treatment system is going to prevent an ongoing poisoning in the household. Radon is also found in the water, and when entering the house through your well water, and then into the air, you would never even realize it until it is too late. Controlling all of these instances and problems is completed with the use of a well water treatment system.
