Health effects of drinking common water contaminants

Your drinking water is vital to your health and well-being as a Central Texas resident. However, many home and business owners fail to recognize when their drinking water becomes contaminated with common types of bacteria and minerals. These contaminants can have negative health effects while also damaging your pipes or objects that come into contact with the water. By installing a simple water filtration system or softening water that is affected by minerals within a well, you may be saving yourself and your family from developing serious health problems farther down the road.

Contaminated water may be difficult to initially recognize. There are a number of signs that can warn you of contaminated water, such as changes in the taste, scent, and look of the water. The following contaminants may result in these corresponding physical illnesses or signs that your water requires treatment:

  • Total Coliform: cramps, nausea, jaundice
  • Fecal Coliform: diarrhea, cramps, nausea
  • Nitrate: shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, lethargy
  • Lead: high blood pressure, abdominal pain, muscle pain
