Test for these Contaminants in Your Water
Bacteria: Strains of E. Coli cause serious illness or death, especially in children.
Lead: This heavy metal causes developmental damage in children, as well as neurological and kidney damage in all ages.

Nitrates/nitrites: Come from fertilizers and animal waste. They can developmental problems in children.
Chlorine: By-products can increase cancer risk; it’s bad for your skin and eyes, and it makes your water taste and smell bad.
