Water faucet dripping
May 31, 2017

At Pippin Brothers, we strongly believe that nothing matters quite as much as the health and safety of our customers and their families. It’s one of the main reasons why we place so much focus on improving indoor air quality, especially in Lawton and Burkburnett homes where asthma and allergy sufferers live. Although air pollution is a major concern, another that often gets overlooked is water quality, and it’s not something that only applies to those who have well water.

We’ve found that a lot of people are making headlines throughout the country for not drinking enough water. Hydration is certainly nothing to fool around with, but we can’t stress enough how important it is to ensure that the water you’re drinking is safe. So, when was the last time you took a close look at the water you and your family are drinking regularly? If you can’t come up with an answer, you owe it to your health to find out today.

The Concern Over Bacteria

“Bacteria” just doesn’t have a great ring to it, even though the vast majority of these organisms are harmless and even beneficial to our health. When it comes to bacteria in drinking water, however, there’s good reason to be concerned. In a recent study, 34% of private wells surveyed tested positive for E. coli, which can prove to be deadly in its effects on the human body.

Those who have city water aren’t immune to the threat, either, as bacteria and viruses can easily affect the public water supply either at the source or as it travels to your faucet. If you’ve never had your water tested, it’s virtually impossible to tell from smell and taste alone whether or not you have a problem on your hands.

How Pippin Can Help

In the infinitely wise words of Benjamin Franklin, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” To put it another way, you can get a great deal of mileage out of testing your water for contaminants before going ahead and conducting costly repairs, which may end up doing essentially nothing if you don’t actually have water quality issues.

Once the results are in, however, we can help mitigate numerous problems associated with water quality, including issues pertaining to rust, odors, toxins, acidic well water and more. We’ll work with you to determine the problem and the solution, answering any questions you may have about water treatment along the way.

Summer will be here before you know it, and the importance of drinking enough water to stay properly hydrated will only grow as temperatures increase. You need to know whether or not the water coming out of your faucet is safe, and Pippin Brothers is here to help.
