Laboratory testing found all sorts of really bad stuff in bottled water. We were very surprised to see that a lot of popular brands that you and I drink every day were on the list that were tested.
They found disinfection byproducts, industrial chemicals, and prescription drugs. You would think that the government would regulate the industry better.
The fact is that our local utilities are requires to report test results to the public, but the bottle water companies are not, so you never know what you are drinking.
So you would think that it bad enough that the water maybe contaminated?

Ecoli found in ground water supply sample, jeapordizing the health of many New Jersey homes and businesses. As a result, a boil alert has been issued and in effect immediately for 3 Bergen County towns. Ridgewood, Wyckoff and all of Glenwood, N.J. This applies to you! You may have family or friends that are effected, so please spread the message that Aspen Water Solutions is here to help!
Officials say it is not safe to use the water without boiling it first, but you need water to do most anything in the home if you stop and think about it. So what can you do?
Be sure to boil the water for atleast 1 minute before considering it safe to brush your teeth, make coffee, or cook. Get rid of any existing ice cubes or teas you made this week, because chances are it was with contaminated water. Don’t use your dishwasher if it is not above 160 degrees, and please don’t think this is a time to soak in the tub. Be cautious of sending your children to school without a bottle of safe water, and if you are just as creeped out by this as we are, give us a call for a FREE water test to determine just how safe your access is during this time.
In addition to the water fiasco over the boil alert, we want you to be aware of the harmful effects of bottled water, and it’s risks to our health and the environment. Most bottled water companies use tap water, and those that don’t contain a multitude of toxins. The plastics used to make these bottles are also full of contaminates that seep into the water through it’s storage in these plastic coffins.
So if you don’t feel comfortable boiling, and don’t want to further endanger yourself through bottled water, what’s the solution? Aspen Water Solutions!
We beg the question of how this happened to begin with, and can we really trust that it will all be removed? All we know to tell you is to take a proactive approach. Rather than wait for the city or someone else to find the solution, DIY and call on the professional team at Aspen Water Solutions.

Chloramines are disinfectants utilized to deal with drinking water. Chloramines are most commonly formed when ammonia is included with chlorine to treat drinking water. Chloramines provide longer lasting disinfection, this kind of disinfection is referred to as secondary disinfection.
One in five Americans use drinking water treated with chloramines.
Many public water systems use chlorine as their alternate antiseptic. But some PWSs changed their less important disinfectant to chloramines to meet up with disinfection byproduct specifications. Since then, consumers have raised questions about this switch in disinfection.
Drinking water disinfection is one of the important technical advances of humankind; but similar to every major significant development it gives a disadvantage. Today, we run the possibility of over ingesting the disinfection chemicals found in public water treatment, along with their dangerous disinfection by-products. It’s a disappointment to know what anything from natural radioactive impurities to anti-depressants is really within our water. A few toxins, for example, chlorine, are fairly easy to filter out. Unlike chloramines, and disinfection byproducts are much slow to dissolve and far more difficult to remove, some of these toxins found to cause cancer.
The absolute most significant problem with making use of chloramines with the residual disinfectant in drinking water is that it may cause health problems such as.
Unfortunately, there’s no reported evidence, when patients stop chlorinated water, their symptom get better; while they keep on bathing and consumption, their health become worse. There’ve been no scientific studies associated with health effects of chloramines,
Chloramines’ in drinking water may cause a number of health problems. There is more anecdotic evidence cause and effect for many of these symptoms compared to others. below are a list of some of the problems that you may have do to the use of these chemicals.
Above is a list of some of the problems that you may have do to the use of these chemicals in our drinking water. One way to combat them is the use of a whole house water treatment system by Aspen Water Solutions.
Lead is devastating to the human body, inhibiting calcium and oxygen transport and altering nerve transmission within the brain. Many lead poisoning takes place when people swallow lead paint chips or breathe in lead dust. The lead accumulates in soft tissue kidneys, bone marrow, liver, and brain and teeth and bones.
The only way to know whether your tap water contains lead is to get it tested. You simply cannot see, taste, or smell lead in drinking water. So, you will need to ask your water supplier whether your water has lead in it. For homes served by general public water systems, data on lead in tap water may be available regarding it on the internet from your local water authority. In the event your water provider doesn’t post this important information, you should call and find out, click on the link to find your water company. http://www.state.nj.us/bpu/assistance/utility/
High amounts of lead in tap water can cause health effects if the lead into the water enters the bloodstream and causes an elevated blood lead level.
Most research has revealed that exposure to lead-contaminated water alone wouldn’t be likely to elevate blood lead levels in most adults, even exposure to water with a lead content near to the EPA accomplishment amount for lead of 15 per billion.
Risk will vary, however, based on the individual, the circumstances, as well as the amount of water consumed. For example, infants who drink formula prepared with lead-contaminated water might be at a high risk since the big level of water they consume relative to their body size.
If your tap water has lead at amounts exceeding EPA’s action level of 15, you need to take action to minimize your exposure to the lead in the water.
You need to begin by asking your water specialist these questions:
1. What can you do to lower it below the EPA’s action level of fifteen parts per billion?
2. Does your service pipe from the street, have lead in it?
If the answer is no, then the next question is.
3. How do I check the pipes in my house for lead?
In case the pipe within the street doesn`t contain lead, the lead in your tap water might be coming from fixtures, pipes, or elsewhere in your home. Locating and removing these can be a long process and be very expensive. The best way to deal with this problem is with a water treatment system installed in your home by Aspen Water Solutions.
Unless you get rid of the source, you should take the following at any time you wish to utilize tap water for drinking or cooking, especially when the water happens to be off and sitting in the pipes for longer than 6 hours:
Before using of tap-water for consumption, drinking or food preparation, cooking, wash out your water system by running the kitchen tap or just about any tap you take drinking or cooking water from.
Then, fill a clean container with water with this tap. This water would be suitable for preparation, cooking, drinking of baby formula, or other consumption. To conserve water, collect multiple containers of water at once after you have got fully flushed the water through the tap as described.
Before the lead source is removed, you should take the following steps any time you wish to use tap water for drinking or cooking, particularly when the water has been off and sitting within the pipes for more than 6 hours unless you have a water treatment system installed.
Keep in mind that additional flushing is necessary: This is just our suggestion and you should consult your water utility first. For a free consultation give us a call 201-301-6222 and let us help you with this problem.
