Free water test
The word ‘free’ always conjures up a lot of excitement. When people are getting something for free, they are immediately enticed and excited. Everyone wants whatever they can have for little to no cost. Today, many different types of companies are using ‘free’ incentives to garner new customers. Everything from getting a simple key fob for a new store opening to receiving a 7 course meal at a fine restaurant for just listening to a talk about retirement or investments. The craziest thing about it is that folks will line up and wait for hours for a $3 key fob.
We all love the freebie, but we sometimes don’t consider or take advantage of some of what we’ll call ‘critical’ freebies. Take a free water test as an example. Did you know a professional water expert will provide a free water test for contaminants and water hardness?
Recently, the local news is running a story about issues with the local northern New Jersey water almost on a daily basis. While the water in this area is treated before it reaches your home (except in the case of a private wells), there are still many towns that are testing positive for traces of lead, PFOAs, and other contaminants in the drinking water.
Some of us have private well water. These wells have always been known to provide the freshest cleanest water available. In most areas, that is still the case; however, let’s take a moment to think about how your well water may be being affected by some of the recently reported contaminents. Consider run off. If you think about the local factories and manufacturing plants that are or were in the area at one time or still today, you may want to consider this potential contaminant risk. Roll off, run off, or waste drainage from the plant or factory may have soaked into the ground where or near your private well. Other contaminants are airborne and can find there way into our local waterways simply by settling on the water and land. There are many articles to learn about what may or may not be in your local or well water.
