Public drinking water supplies meet national and state safety standards, however, homeowners using a private water supply are responsible for monitoring the quality of their own drinking water supplies.
Water treatment devices can improve the quality of water by reducing health hazards such as bacteria, chemical pollutants and other toxic substances, or help remove nuisance problems, such as odors or hardness. Before considering any treatment devices, making sure you know the quality of your water supply.
If any undesirable qualities are identified in the water, such as strange odors or coloration, the problem can often be solved by repairing or replacing the existing water system or treating the home water supply. The detection of bacteria, potentially toxic substances and other contaminants usually requires laboratory-conducted tests.
One way to combat water quality issues with your private well is by understanding the role that common home water treatment systems can play in ensuring a safe water supply.
Join us for our webinar focused on understanding common home water treatment systems. This webinar, part of the Florida Well Owner Network (FWON), aims to educate Florida residents about well water quality and best management practices to ensure well and groundwater protection.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday, September 21 at 2:00 PM. Registration is required and can be done here: https://ufl.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_1FwkyXbmTouLcsb5JEb1Ig
