Checking Your Own Tap Water

Hints that will help you evaluate your own tap water for possible contamination or problems,

1. If your sink has a dark-reddish-colored stain it may be be the result of rust in your pipes.

2. If your sink has greenish stains it is probally from copper leaching from the pipes.

3. If you notice a rotten egg smell its probally hydrogen sulfide produced from bacteria

4. If the water is cloudy it can be from dirt particles , iron , or bacterial contamination.

Cloudy water can also result from small air bubbles forming when the water is under pressure as it leaves the tap and soon dissipates. This is harmless and no need for concern.
