What’s In Your Water And What Is Water Softening?
Water softening services help with hard or rusty water, or water with a foul odor. Municipal water is almost exclusively well water:…just a bigger well! Only the government charges you for it after they inject chlorine (a carcinogen-cancer causing agent) and usually some form of poly phosphates. The latter, being a sequestering agent to prevent the scaling of dissolved minerals in their pipes. (The same class of chemicals you’re not allowed to put into laundry soap aka “phosphate free”. But the government gets to define. They call it “food grade”.
Well Water Contamination
The existence of environmental H. pylori reservoirs has been suggested and epidemiological studies indicate that water can be a source of H. pylori infection. Studies have shown that there is a significant link between people who have Peptic Ulcer Disease and H. pylori bacteria contamination in their private well. Researchers found that a high percentage of wells (85%) that have Coliform bacteria also have the H. pylori bacteria and that 65% of private well water samples and 75% of surface water samples contained the H. pylori bacteria.
