This year, our team at Aqua Pump has worked hard to help awareness regarding the dangers and hazards of drinking soft drinks over water. With our efforts through the Suffield school systems, we continued our message to other outlets including this television ad.

To help get our message across, we teamed up with Dr. Alan Nath, D.D.S. & Dr. Stacey Nath-Vinick D.M.D from AGN Dental in Suffield, Connecticut. Unfortunately, Dr. Alan Nath and Dr. Stacey Nath-Vinick have seen the effects of soft drinks and other beverages high in sugar and other additives.

We are not only business owners; We are proud parents and understand the dangers that come with consumption of soft drinks such as soda.  Our goal is to continue to educate and help our youth and old audience understand what the dangers are and easy ways to prevent them.

For more information, please call Aqua Pump at (860) 684-5349. It's just as important to make sure the water we drink is free from any toxins and minerals that may also be hazardous to our health.

Nitrate is a naturally occuring form of nitrogen which is found in soil.  Nitrates form when the microorganisms break down plants which are decaying, fertilizers, livestock manure, etc. Because plants require large quantities, they usually take the nitrates up. However, sometimes rain or irrigtaion water sources can leach them into the surrounding groundwater.

While we know that nitrates occur naturally in ground water, human activities can play a part including: 

  • Fertilizers
  • Manure
  • Septic systems
  • Sludge
  • Wastewater

According to the EPA," Infants below six months who drink water containing nitrate in excess of the maximum contaminant level (MCL) could become seriously ill and, if untreated, may die. Symptoms include shortness of breath and blue baby syndrome."

Many homeowners forget to test their water on a regular basis. It is suggested to have water tested annually for possible contaminants such as nitrates. For more information regarding testing in surrounding areas and to schedule a test for yourself, contact the team at Aqua Pump at (860) 684-5349.

Depending on where you live, you are more likely to experience certain water issues over others. Because no two places of the earth are quite alike, testing your water annually (for private water sources) is crucial. 

In previous posts, we have mentioned characteristics of hard water, soft water, nitrates, etc. Below are some possible water conditions and how you might recognize them.  

Does your household plumbing contain lead?

Test for: pH, lead and copper

Do you live near a landfill, dump, gas station, dry-cleaning operation?

Test for: total dissolved solds, pH, metals, chloride, volatile organic compouds, sulfate

Do you have scaly residue? soap that wont lather?

Test for: Hardness of water

Do you live near farms or heavy agricultural areas?

Test for: Pesticides, coloiform bacteria, Nitrate  

As the EPA states, "Test private water supplies annually for nitrate and coliform bacteria to detect contamination problems early. Test them more frequently if you suspect a problem. Be aware of activities in your watershed that may affect the water quality of your well, especially if you live in an unsewered area."

To schedule a test for your Connecticut residents, call our team at (860) 684-5349.
