Arsenic In Minnesota Drinking Water – Health Effects & What You Need To Know

Unfortunately, there have been cases of arsenic in Minnesota drinking water. You’ll find this substance in soil and rocks throughout the state. Sometimes, tiny amounts will dissolve and make their way into the groundwater that eventually finds its way into homes. If you have any reason to believe you have arsenic in your water, please get in touch with Aquarius Water Conditioning immediately. We can install a Kinetico water purification system that will once again make your water entirely safe for use.

Why Arsenic is So Worrisome

Arsenic In Minnesota Drinking Water - Health Effects & What You Need To KnowIf people drink water with even low arsenic levels for an extended time, they may be at a higher risk of developing some severe health issues. These include diabetes and several forms of cancer (liver, bladder, and lung cancer).

Arsenic can also result in developing respiratory as well as cardiovascular issues. Exposure to arsenic has also been linked to discolored skin and skin lesions. However, arsenic-related health problems typically take quite a few years to become apparent.

What to Do About It

The first thing you should do as soon as possible is to have your water tested. The federal drinking water standard is ten micrograms of arsenic per liter. But consuming water with even lower levels can also lead to health issues.

If you get your water from a private well, your testing requirements will differ from those on a public water system. You should have your well tested six months after a new well is drilled. If you’ve had your well for a long time, have it tested at least once a year to be on the safe side.

As far as public water systems are concerned, experienced, skilled professionals keep an extremely close watch for arsenic and other potentially dangerous contaminants. If they notice a problem, they take action to keep your water safe and healthy. However, if you want to be extra sure, get in touch with Aquarius Water Conditioning. While we can’t test for arsenic, we can help you get your water sample to a state-certified laboratory.

What Happens if Your Water Has Arsenic?

The good news is that Aquarius Water Conditioning has the solution if your water tests positive for arsenic. We offer Kinetico water purification systems and are very proud to do so. These systems are the best the industry has to offer – by far. Before long, your water will come out 99.9 percent pure and arsenic-free. You’ll be able to drink and bathe with complete peace of mind.

Another important feature of Kinetico systems is that they don’t work on electricity. Instead, they work on the principle of kinetic energy. So even if you lose power for an extended period, you’ll always be able to rest easy, knowing your water will remain completely safe.

We love our Kinetico whole-home water treatment system.  No residue around our faucets.  No smelly well water.  My wife loves what Kinetico water does for her hair and skin and the Sherck boys LOVE the Kinetico K5 Drinking System (They fill their water bottles before hockey and soccer practices).

Clean, healthy, great-tasing water.  That is Kinetico!”
