How to get the water your family deserves

The first step toward healthful, refreshing water is to evaluate your family’s needs and find the system that is right for you.

Are there contaminants in my water?

While some contaminants such as lead and chlorine may be easy to detect in your water, other types may be harder to identify. Your local county reports your city's contaminants to the EPA, which you can access at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/dwinfo/index.html.

Is my family at risk?
Once you've checked the contaminants in your water, check the following chart to determine if your family is at risk.
