Homeowners with a private well as their primary drinking water source are responsible for ensuring the safety of their water. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), well owners should test their water at least once a year for bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, pH and any other suspected contaminants. Additional testing should be considered if there have been any repairs to the well, the wellhead gets flooded, there are recurring gastrointestinal problems in the household, or there are any noticeable changes in color, odor or taste.

Urban development has placed increased stress on water resources, which in turn has increased the need for cost-effective methods to treat drinking water. This is true regardless of whether the installation is at a single point of use (POU) or at the point of entry (POE) for treating all water used in the home.

A few weeks ago, the local electric utility visited my apartment building to give the residents free efficiency upgrades.
