People who get their water from a municipal supply don’t usually spend much, if any time thinking about it. It’s just there. You turn on the faucet, flush the toilet, start a load of laundry or turn on the shower, and water comes out. Like magic. There are people who make sure that happens.
While all of that is true, the unfortunate reality is that cities and towns can and do sometimes have serious problems, both with the safety and the quality of the water they’re offering to their citizens. In fact, according to statistics published by the Environmental Protection Agency, there are more than a thousand communities, cities and towns scattered all over the country that have what the EPA describes as “serious” water quality and safety issues. That’s why public water system testing in Front Royal, VA is so important.
Now, maybe it’s the case that you’re perfectly happy with the water coming out of your faucet. It tastes good, it doesn’t have any sort of odor to it, it doesn’t stain your teeth when you drink it, or stain your clothing when you do a load of laundry. It doesn’t leave a scaly buildup in your shower, or red rings around your toilet.
We hope that’s the case. We’d love it if nobody ever had to contend with any of the problems mentioned above and that everybody in the country had access to clean, good-tasting, refreshing water to drink on demand.
Unfortunately, we don’t live in that world, and the problems we outlined above are all too common.
If you’ve spent any time at all moving around as you were growing up, then you know that water quality is a thing. It matters, because from one area to the next, the taste and smell of your water may vary wildly.
Sometimes foul smells and unpleasant tasting water is just a matter of quality and aesthetics, but other times, it’s due to dangerously high concentrations of chemicals that can hurt, or even kill you if you drink it. Either way, there’s tremendous peace of mind in knowing with absolute certainty that the water you’re relying on for cooking, bathing and drinking is safe.
