The water crisis in Flint, MI is a heartbreaking disaster. Thousands of families with children have been exposed to high levels of lead in their drinking water, a heavy metal that in the short term can cause issues like stomach aches, vomiting, and headaches. Long term repercussions include delayed development, memory loss, kidney dysfunction and more. The situation in Flint has made many people across the country much more aware of the dangers that could be lurking in their drinking water. That’s why so many people in New Jersey are calling about our free water testing services.
What You Can Do To Prevent Lead in Your Water
Unfortunately, if you are using city water, there is very little that you can do to prevent lead from getting into your water. The primary cause of lead getting into water is through old pipes, which may have contained lead that now leaches into the water supply. Because there is almost nothing you can do to prevent this (other than updating your own plumbing system), you’ll need to take other steps to prevent ingesting any lead that might be present.
Step One: Get Your Water Tested
Before you take any steps to filter your water, make sure there is a reason to filter it. Tanz Inc. offers free water testing services, so you can get a comprehensive analysis of your water supply at no cost. This will tell you what kind of levels you have in your water and help dictate your next steps.
Step Two: Research Filtration Options
There are a number of filtration options available for your home water supply. You may simply need to invest in a water-filtering pitcher, something that fits on your sink, or even an in-plumbing filtration system. You’ll want to research your options and find one that meets your needs and your budget. Our team can offer suggestions based on your water testing results.
Step Three: Install the Right Filtration System
If you choose a filtration option that requires installation, you can either do it yourself or have our experienced team members do it for you. They’ve been installing filtration in homes like yours for more than 30 years, so you can feel confident in their work and ability to get the installation done perfectly. You’ll be enjoying safe, clean water in no time.
