Testing Water For Lead & Copper
Testing water for lead and copper
Have lead and copper leeched into your drinking water? What’s stopping you? Time? Money?
Lead and copper in drinking water have been linked to many adverse health effects and recent cases like that of Flint, Michigan have helped homeowners to become more educated about the dangers of poor water quality.
Lead is so toxic to children and adults that the EPA has set the maximum contaminant level goal at zero. Many water systems perform regular testing and monitoring, but this only gives a system-wide picture and is not reflective of conditions at a specific household faucet. If you want to know if your home’s drinking water is free of contaminants, the only way to find out is to sample the water from your own tap.
