Your drinking water can have a big impact on your health, but do you know what is in the water that comes out of the faucets in your home?

The first thing that you would need to know is whether your water is coming from a municipal source or if it is coming from a well. This would tell you how much control you have over the water that you get. If it comes from your own well, then you can do quite a bit to improve your water quality, but your first step should be to have it tested in a lab to find out exactly what is in it. In fact, it is worth having your water checked every few years since several factors can change and affect your water source.

If you have municipal water, you should receive regular updates on the quality of your water. While you are not in control of the water source, you can install additional filters if you feel like the water isn’t up to your standards.
