Your Water Is Alive… And We Can Prove It!

Pour yourself a glass of water. Add a few ice cubes. Looks cool and refreshing, right? All you see is clear water designed to quench your thirst, hydrate your body and cool you off. What you don’t see are several common contaminants floating around in your tap water. That’s right, the innocent looking glass of tap water may not be so innocent. In fact, your cup of water might actually contain biological pollutants such as Algae Bloom, Coliform, E. coli, Giardia and Nitrates. While these contaminants may not be visible with the naked eye, it does mean that your water might be alive.

Which Contaminants Might Be Lurking In Your Water? 

  • Algae bloom is an unusually fast increase in the growth and amount of algae in water
  • Coliform is a type of bacteria that grows in the intestines of humans and animals
  • E. coli is a type of coliform bacteria found in sewage
  • Giardia is a microscopic parasite found in water
  • Nitrates found in water are inorganic compounds of nitrogen and oxygen

What They Do And Where They Come From

These common water contaminants do more than affect the taste and quality of your water. They can create intestinal and digestive illness, reproductive disorders, and nervous system maladies. These pollutants thrive in the intestines of warm-blooded animals and are transmitted to the water we consume through feces and waste of these animals.

Who’s At Risk?

Consuming large quantities of chemicals and water bacteria can be dangerous to consumers. Infants, expectant mothers, persons with compromised immune systems, and the elderly are at increased risk for these ailments and should take extra precautions. The excess nitrogen caused by these bacteria are also known carcinogens because of the way they interact with each other and the way they react in the human body.

What Can You Do To Increase The Safety Of Your Water 

There are several preventive measures you can take to protect the safety and quality of water:

  • Properly dispose of grease, paint, oil and chemical products
  • Use environmentally-friendly household cleaning products
  • Limit your use of pesticides and fertilizers
  • Install a water filtration system to help address water impurities
