With the Flint, Michigan water scare in 2016, many Detroit area homeowners began to worry about the quality of their drinking water– and for good reason. With increased levels of contaminants found in the Flint water system, many thought it would only be a matter of time before it reached Detroit. But a report in November of last year confirmed that the Metro Detroit area contaminant levels were well below the EPA standards and deemed ‘safe for drinking.’ But should you trust them?
Is lead a problem?
Your local municipalities and the city of Detroit test for lead in the water system on an annual basis. But these tests paint the big picture, they do not examine the water that is coming out of the individual faucet.

What is hard and soft water?
Hard water is frozen and soft water is not, it’s that simple! No, we’re only kidding, but hard water could have a negative effect on your plumbing system, so it is important to know the warning signs. If you notice a film or scum developing on your glasses in the dishwasher, there is chance that your water is ‘hard.’ It gets this name because of the high calcium levels in the water and if left untreated, the ‘hard’ water could cause costly drain clogs.
Are my children at a greater risk?
Contaminated water is dangerous for people of all ages, but if you have an infant coming home, it is especially important to get a test. High nitrate levels in water could affect a pregnant mother or an infant and unfortunately, a lot of the homes in the area have problems with this contaminant. It is simple to treat with a home filtration system but you won’t know where you stand until you have a test.
