BACTERIA + VIRUSES
Simply having access to tap water that appears, smells, and tastes normal may not always be sufficient. According to the CDC, waterborne illnesses affect an estimated 1 in 44 people in the United States each year. Therefore, it is critical to evaluate your water quality and determine how to address undetectable contaminants like bacteria and viruses that may be present in your tap water.
HOW BACTERIA + VIRUSES GET INTO YOUR WATER
Bacteria- and virus-contaminated drinking water can be the result of many things, including:
Poor agricultural practices
Improper water distribution systems
Floods and polluted stormwater runoff
Leaking septic tanks
Animal, plant, and insect interferance
HEALTH EFFECTS FROM BACTERIA + VIRUSES
Consuming contaminated water is typically the cause of intestinal inflammation, but it can lead to more severe consequences. Common symptoms include fever, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and stomach pain. In addition, long-term health issues may arise, such as nervous or reproductive system problems, or even chronic illnesses like cancer.
