The new edition of The Definitive Guide To Well Water Treatment has been released. The comprehensive guide is now offered online at The Clean Water Store in eBook form.
Millions of homeowners, communities and businesses across North America use water wells to supply their drinking water. According to the U.S. EPA, approximately 15 percent of Americans rely on their own private well for drinking water supplies. These water sources are not subject to EPA standards, so it is up to the individual household or business to take steps to ensure the protection and maintenance of their drinking water supplies.
Microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, parasites and other microorganisms are sometimes found in water. Shallow wells, those with water close to ground level are most at risk for this type of contamination. Other contaminants commonly found in private wells are radon, nitrate, and metals such as iron, manganese, arsenic, and lead.
Since ground water chemistry varies so much across the country, many different technologies are needed to treat various contaminants. The Definitive Guide To Well Water Treatment makes it easy for households to find answers to difficult questions about how to treat their well water in an easy-to-read format. The guide explains how to identify the source of well water quality problems based on identifying the type of sediment, odor, or color, and has over 29 chapters covering a comprehensive list of water problems and common solutions.
A sample of the chapters include:
How do I know if I need water treatment? Where do I start?
