Why does your well water need filtered?
Approximately 85% of the U.S. population receives its water from community water systems. A typical American uses 80-100 gallons of water every day. If that sounds like a lot, consider that the total includes not just drinking water, but also the water used for washing – showers, hands, dishes, clothing – watering lawns, and waste disposal.
A well is a strategically placed access point drilled into an aquifer, combined with a pump to withdraw the water and a basic filtering or screening system. Approximately 15% of the US population relies on individually owned sources of drinking water, such as wells, cisterns, and springs. The majority of household wells are found in rural areas.
