The water in Florida is considered hard water, and is loaded with mineral deposits. These minerals attach themselves to everything, including your pipes, water heater and fixtures like faucets and showerheads. It's not uncommon to replace faucets, fixtures and shut-offs for no other reason than the city water has destroyed them. But minerals aren't the only thing to be concerned about when it comes to your tap water in Pasco County.
Here's information from EWG (Environmental Working Group), a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment, your Pasco County tap water contains 95X the level of cancer causing arsenic in it than is considered safe by The EWG Health Guideline of 0.004 ppb for arsenic was defined by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment as a public health goal, the level of a drinking water contaminant that does not pose a significant health risk.
Or how about 32X the level of Radium, 5.4X the level of Chromium...are you willing to risk it. These are just 2 of the many cancer causing contaminants in your tap water that are higher than recommended levels. Learn more here: https://www.ewg.org/tapwater/system.php?pws=FL6511361
Just how thirsty are you? Perhaps you have relegated yourself to hauling bottled water from the store to your home? Don't think you're out of danger there either. The primary risk associated with drinking bottled water is the fact that you can be exposed to harmful toxins from the plastic. ... BPA and other plastic toxins can then make their way into your bloodstream, which can cause a host of problems including various cancers as well as liver and kidney damage.
