Clean drinking water is essential for good health. The water from your tap may not be safe. Even if your water looks and taste good it may contain harmful contaminants. Bottled water and private wells are not regulated by the US EPA. It is up to you to test your water for harmful contaminants. Your family deserves the safest and healthiest water possible. Water experts advise testing the water you drink regularly.
WHAT IS TOTAL WATER QUALITY?
Water quality is determined by the amount of contaminants in your drinking water. Some contaminants are capable of causing a wide range of health problems. For this reason, it is very important to know the amount and kinds of contaminants that are in your drinking water. If the levels of contaminants in your water are below EPA guidelines, the water is considered safe to drink. If your PRO-LAB® Total Water Quality Test Kit indicates your water is hazardous to your health, you should not drink the water.

WHERE DOES YOUR DRINKING WATER COME FROM?
About half of our drinking water supply comes from surface water such as streams, rivers and lakes. The other half comes from water found underground. Both surface water and groundwater is used by 140,000 water utilities to supply water to 310 million people in the United States. More than one-third of Americans receive their drinking water from wells.
