Do You Have Hard Water?
Hard water is the most common nuisance for home and business owners in Lyon County. It impacts everything in your home, from the efficiency of your appliances to your own skin and hair. While hard water may not have an undesirable taste, the dense amount of dissolved minerals in hard water can wreak havoc upon your pipes and appliances while leaving behind an annoying residue.
- Notice your clothes fading with every wash?
- How about stains on your dishes, or in your sinks, toilets and tubs?
- Are your appliances not working as efficiently as they used to?
- Is your skin dry and your hair brittle no matter how many times you change soap and shampoos?
If so, you likely have a hard water problem. With a quick in-home water test, Aquarius can pinpoint what is causing your water problems and offer the best water softening or purification solution for your concerns.
The Challenge of Iron and Manganese
Arsenic is a common problem in Minnesota waters. It sounds terrifying. After all, arsenic is toxic… right? The truth is that it depends on how much you are exposed to, and for how long.
Arsenic is a naturally occurring metalloid found in rocks and soil that can dissolve and make its way into your water supply. We see it most often in well water, since the source comes from natural groundwater.
The Minnesota Department of Health states that existing monitoring data has shown approximately 10% of all Minnesota wells contain natural arsenic levels of at least 10 micrograms per liter. To be lethal, a person must ingest anywhere between 70,000 to 180,000 micrograms of arsenic in a single dose. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t long-term effects due to drinking water contaminated with arsenic, even if it is in small doses.
Health problems generated from long-term consumption of arsenic include: High blood pressure, Nervous system problems, Reduced intelligence in children, Circulatory diseases, Diabetes, Skin problems, Increased risk of cancer. The level of risk varies from individual to individual, but effects like these take years to develop. It’s best to avoid exposure to arsenic when possible.
