Does your home use well water?
The majority of American homes get water from a private well. The advantage of well water is that it’s your water. You don’t have to pay to use it and you can use as much as you want. It also doesn’t have the chlorine and fluoride that’s added to city water.
However, while well water is convenient, there are some disadvantages.
It’s Unregulated – Did you know it’s up to you to evaluate if your well water is safe? Private well water is not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), meaning it’s your duty to check the safety of the water. Potential contaminants include bacteria, minerals, lead, pesticides, fertilizer nitrates, and more. You should professionally test the water for contaminants yearly to ensure it’s safe.
It’s Usually Hard Water – Well water is groundwater that comes from an aquifer. Rain and runoff seep through the ground and replenish the water supply. While sitting underground, the water can break down minerals in the soil – like calcium and magnesium – adding them to the water supply. Well water usually requires softening and filtration to remove these minerals.
It Can Damage Your Appliances – The minerals in well water can make it difficult to get dishes or clothes clean, and it can build up into limescale, damaging appliances. Hard water can also leave orange stains in toilets and sinks, and damage light clothing.
It Can Smell – Well water can contain sulfur, which gives off a rotten egg smell, making it less than appetizing for drinking and cooking.
