Sometimes, its not enough to educate the parents, its about educating the children too. This is what Aqua Pump has decided to do, by partnering up with Suffield High School in Connecticut.
The goal? To have our youth choosing better alternatives to soda. Whether it be soda or diet soda, the effects from both are hindering the growth and health of our young men and women. In an effort to help, Aqua Pump has decided to educate through messages of choosing water over soda.
In our previous articles on our Aqua Pump blog, we outlined the hazards of artificial sweetners used in diet sodas along with the amount of sugar in the regular sodas.
Now it's time to begin substituting the soda with the best choice of all: water.
Stay tuned for our updates regarding our effort to education on the hazards of soda and the benefits of water.
Anytime their is a facility, business or location such as a school, there is a Certified Operator checking the water for the personnel and public safety. The realization is, water that is used by the public needs to be at the highest level of quality.

This is where a Connecticut Certified Operator comes into play. As the Department of Health states, the Certified Operator facilitates the following:

In some of our previous blogs, we stressed heavily on the fact that depending where you live, your water may be affected by different pollutants. Now, we have a real life example that you may or may not have read recently in the Journal Inquirer.
East Windsor residents have been dealing with a pollutant in their water that was banned in 1983. What was the pollutant? EDB or 1,2-Dibromoethane.
As Wikipedia states, EDB or 1,2-Dibromoethane also known as ethylene dibromide (EDB), is the organobromine compound with the chemical formula (CH2Br)2. Although trace amounts occur naturally in the ocean, where it is formed probably by algae and kelp, it is mainly synthetic. It is a colorless liquid with a sweet odor, detectable at 10 ppm, is a widely used and sometimes-controversial fumigant.
So how did this pollutant turn up? As it turns out, the Tobacco industry used it as a soil fumigant for many years. Although it was banned as a fumigant in 1983, it is still present within the soil and thus, into water sources.
Fortunately, as years have gone by, our society has gotten much stricter on best practices with our environment. However, the downside is that years ago, they were not and the effects are being felt today.
Whether you purchased a house or potentially looking to move, it's critical to get a better understanding as to what surrounds your future location or where you currently live. Well water testing is up to the homeowner and should be done once a year. For areas in Connecticut where there has been a history of farming, textile mills or any other possible contaminant location, its critical that homeowners fully understand the potential hazards creeping into their water.
For more information regarding testing or for information regarding surrounding areas near you, call the team at Aqua Pump at (860) 684-5349.
2013 has certainly brought some unforgettable weather patterns to the United States so far. Between New England snowfall totals, late season blizzards and the devastating tornadoes throughout Oklahoma and the midwest, we are all too familiar with weather in general.
One thing we often dont think about is the effects these types of weather patterns have on surface water, which can effect our drinking water supplies too.
As the EPA states, "Storm water runoff becomes contaminated when rain water comes into contact with contaminated soil and either dissolves the contamination or carries contaminated soil particles."
With weather patterns changing surface water, its impacts also have a spiraling effect including:
With extreme weather, such as the weather we are currently facing, it is critical that we pay attention to our water and do testing on a more regular basis. As human beings living on earth, everything we do is connected, almost in a circular motion.
When our weather is extreme, our agriculture is effected, which incorporates livestock and other organisms, which in turn has a direct correlation with human beings.
While municipailities and other organizations are controlled and monitored by regulations, its up to homeowners to test their water when they schedule testing.

It's hard to believe that something that is offered to the public, advertised and on store shelves could be the root of so much health havoc. In fact, as we dig further into the harmful effects of soda, you'll all consider turning on the faucet for a glass of water.
Scientists have researched and concluded that in order to be healthy, people must maintain body fluids in the slightly alkaline range, 7.1 to 7.5 pH.
As Nutrition Reall Works states, "The pH scale ranges from 0 (totally acid) to 7 (neutral) to 14 (totally alkaline). Over 150 degenerative diseases are linked to acidity, including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, gall and kidney stones, and many more. All diseases thrive in an acidic, oxygen-poor environment.
And where does soda land? On the pH scale, it hovers around the 2.5 pH range.
Its scary to think that drinking what seems to be a harmless soda can create so much havoc on our bodies and overall well being. Here at Aqua Pump, our goal is not simply to sell water products, its to educate. Educating our audience including our young adults is vital for their future and everyone elses. The simple issue is that we simply cannot necessarily trust everything we see or perceive to be healthy.
Artificial Sweeteners are also a culprit and as we go into our next article, we will touch on that hot button.
Water has the ability to truly do wonders to the body including keeping the pH levels where they need to be. Water assists in flushing out toxins, which in turn allows the body to work more efficiently from a cellular level.
Because the month of May is considered National Drinking Water Month, we want everyone to help in spreading the knowledge about potential harmful products as well as taking a step together towards a healthier lifestyl. A healthier lifestyle is one which incorporates: Drinking More Water.
As the Connecticut Department of Public Health announces, "According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), water quality studies have shown that pharmaceuticals are present in our nation's waterbodies and recent reports have documented that some pharmaceuticals have been found at low levels in some drinking water supplies."
Pharmaceuticals enter the environment in several different ways including:
So what is the big deal? As the CT DPH states, there is no test or measurement associated with pharmaceuticals.
"Presently, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and State of Connecticut water quality testing requirements for public water systems do not include testing for pharmaceutical compounds. Also, the USEPA currently does not regulate or have standards for pharmaceutical compounds in drinking water supplies."
In the state of Connecticut, we are lucky to have such strict rules and regulations when it comes to public and private drinking water, however we need to continue to do our part.
The DEP has information for properly disposing of pharmaceuticals here.
Remember, no matter how much or little you think the disposing of pharmaceuticals may be, its up to us to make sure we take the proper measures to keep everyone in our environment safe.
