Your Faucet is Hiding a Dirty Little Secret

...And it Should Scare the Spit Out of You

You use tap water every day but do you know where it comes from? Check out the path your water takes to your faucet. You may be getting more than you bargained for.

1. Water Supply

Lakes, rivers and ponds serve as water supplies, however, runoff from agricultural, industrial and roadway operations can pollute these water sources.

2. Municipal Treatment

Water treatment plants disinfect polluted water, but a recent study by the NRDC shows that there's a nearly one-in-four chance your tap water is either unsafe to drink or hasn’t been properly monitored for contaminants in accordance with federal law.

3. Water Main

From the water treatment plant, water flows through more than one million miles of pipes beneath our streets, which are leeching toxic chemicals in the water due to decay. Replacing this drinking water infrastructure is estimated to cost more than $1 trillion over the next 25 years.

4. House Pipes

Finally, water flows up through the pipes in your house directly to your faucet, ready for use, and the last line of defense is a simple, porous piece of plastic or metal, known as your faucet’s aerator.

So What Does this Mean?

Here's the dirty truth, the filter in your aerator may catch a variety of particles in your water supply. But, there’s a lot more than meets the eye. Public water systems can have a host of contaminants, even if you can't see them. These contaminants can include:

  • Lead
  • Asbestos
  • Atrazine (Herbicide)
  • Cryptosporidium / Giardia
  • Lindane (Pharmaceutical)
  • Chlorine (Taste and Odor)
  • TTHMs
  • Benzene
  • Trichloroethylene (TCE)
  • Copper
  • Mercury
  • Cadmium
