What Are the Most Common Drinking Water Contaminants?
The most common contaminants you may find in your water supply come from a variety of sources and tend to be unique to each home or building. What your water is contaminated with may be different from your neighbor’s, so the only way to know for sure is by calling the experts at Howze Plumbing to schedule a water test.
The most common contaminants in tap water include:
- Chlorine. This contaminant is often put into the city water supply to disinfect the water. If there's too much, however, it can give the water a strange taste and smell or cause dry, itchy skin.
- Fluoride. This is added to the water supply to combat tooth decay, but too much exposure can lead to other health concerns.
- Lead. Often caused by leaching from the plumbing, lead contamination can especially affect young children and pregnant women.
- Iron. A naturally occurring contaminant, iron can stain your sinks and clothes or give your water a metallic taste.
- Copper. A naturally occurring element in rock, soil, and water, your supply can reach dangerous levels due to corrosion of copper pipes.
- Bacteria. While not all bacteria is bad, pathogenic bacteria from runoff or leaky plumbing can make you sick.
