10% of all American households have water leaks. Federal estimates say those leaks waste up to 90 gallons daily, and some local residential water supplies are now so polluted it is hard to find clean drinking water. Thus, we must ask ourselves — how safe is the tap water in our homes to consume?
When it comes to water, most homeowners assume that when they go to their tap for drinking, showering, or cleaning, they will obtain clean, unpolluted water. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case, and what’s more frightening is that the water may appear, smell, and taste clean while being contaminated with microscopic pollutants.
