The most likely contaminants of Florida well water are microbes and nitrate. This issue is a serious one, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that contaminated drinking water causes thousands of U.S. illnesses each year, including several deaths.
Microbes such as bacteria aren’t always harmful, but the mere presence of bacteria is an indicator that other types of more dangerous bacteria, viruses or parasites are probably present. Watch for diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. These are common symptoms experienced after drinking water contaminated by dangerous bacteria.
At Bryant’s Pump Systems and Holy Moses Water Treatment, we can test your well water to detect harmful microbes, then develop the safest and most effective sanitization system for your situation.
