What Is In My Water?

Do your really know what is in the water your drinking?

Determining which treatment system(s) is appropriate for your household depends on a number of factors. Foremost is to determine the desired level of cleansing and the associated costs. Costs include the initial investment in equipment, long-term maintenance and parts replacement, possible water waste and energy usage. Besides budgetary considerations and what one believes to be an acceptable level of contamination, it is equally important to identify the contaminants present in the water. Identifying all harmful substances will allow for the selection an effective system that is geared toward eliminating the specific contaminants in one’s tap water.

Owners of private wells should test their water annually since governmental testing and monitoring regulations do not apply to privately owned wells. Some local public health departments offer basic water testing services to their residents; however, these services are scarce and limited in scope. If your water is supplied by a utility, request a copy of their annual water quality report. It will provide some basic information on the water supply in your area including detected contaminants, the potential sources of those contaminants and the levels at which those contaminants are present in the water. This report may or may not identify every possible harmful substance. The Water Quality Association has free online contaminant research and water symptom diagnostic tools that provide a wealth of useful information.

Without some idea of what needs to be removed from your water, you will simply be guessing as to the most suitable system. Regardless of the water source and the availability of free analysis services or reporting, everyone should still have their water analyzed by either a water treatment professional, an EPA or state approved lab, a home test kit or muscle testing. Muscle testing for specific contaminants will be the most accurate method if one has kinesiological experience and a comprehensive list of substances that could be present. Testing can begin with the identification of broad category contaminants by using statements such as these:

  • “There are inorganic compounds in this water.”
  • “There are microorganisms in this water.”
  • “There are organic substances in this water.”

The testing should progress to more specific statements such as:

  • “This water contains arsenic.”
  • “The amount of arsenic present in this water will be harmful to my body.”
  • “There are harmful bacteria in this water.”

The testing should be as detailed and specific as possible. The comprehensiveness of the analysis will depend on one’s ability to construct specific, pertinent test statements which is a function of one’s intuitiveness and desire for specificity. The more relevant and specific the questions one knows to ask, the more thorough the analysis. Be very clear on this point – muscle testing is infallible. Test results can never be in error. Any shortcoming in the process resides with the person posing the questions and/or the statements being tested. Ambiguous, irrelevant, nonspecific statements will yield similar results that will be subject to misinterpretation which can and should be avoided at all times.
