Do you ever wonder what chemicals are in that cup of water you’re drinking from the faucet?
Unfiltered tap water may contain any number of pollutants, including chloroform, chromium, haloacetic acids, nitrate, radium, trihalomethanes, and arsenic. These contaminants, known to cause cancer, may be present in the water you are drinking right now.
There are federal guidelines that define the legal limits for the levels of contaminants in your home’s public drinking water—but there are some chemicals that have no legal limit and can be dangerous at certain concentrations.
Water with pollutants within the legal limits does not necessarily equal safe—it just means the levels are considered compliant with federal drinking water standards.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) monitors public drinking water systems and ensures they remain in compliance with these federal guidelines.
However, even if the concentrations of contaminants in your water are within legal limits, they could still pose a major health risk.
New safety regulations for water passed in Massachusetts in 2021, which enforce testing for six of the most common chemicals found in water. State and local officials will notify affected areas if concentrations exceed the new guidelines.
But the possibility of chemicals contaminating your drinking water, even within legal limits, remains. So how do you protect yourself and your loved ones? By installing a whole-home water filtration system!

What Are the Risks Associated With Contaminated Water?
High concentrations of pollutants in your water can result in negative consequences, such as:
- Health Implications
Contaminated water puts your health at risk. Since Massachusetts enacted new safety regulations in the fall of 2021, more communities have found elevated levels of toxic chemicals known as PFAS.PFAS are toxic, man-made chemicals that are often found in many household items, like nonstick cooking pans, water-repellant clothing, and stain-resistant furniture and carpets. Drinking and using water polluted with unsafe levels of chemicals like these can result in gastrointestinal illnesses, nervous system or reproductive conditions, and chronic diseases like cancer. Depending on the filtration system you have installed, many of these chemicals can be removed, reducing your exposure and supporting better health.
- Plumbing Issues With High Repair Costs
Poor water quality can also impact your home’s plumbing system, resulting in costlier repairs. Limescale can develop in your pipes from continuous exposure to hard water.
