What to Include in a Water Safety Plan

Water Safety Plan Essentials

When it comes to certain situations, it’s always important to have a plan. These plans are put in place to ensure everyone is safe and all potential questions and concerns are covered.

For instance, in the event of a car accident, it’s important to determine what injuries occurred to all parties involved, call the police, and gather the insurance information from the person in the other car if there was another vehicle involved.

In the same line of thought, every home should have a water safety plan. This type of plan uses a comprehensive risk assessment to ensure that the water is safe to drink at all times.

Safe Drinking Water for All

safe drinking Many people just assume that their water is always safe to drink. And living in the United States, those people would be right most of the time.

But there are some instances where the water can become unsafe to drink, and homeowners need to have a plan in place to test the water and make sure it is safe before drinking it again.

For example, when a major flood hits, a tornado rips through the city, or another natural disaster occurs, this can jeopardize the water’s safety.

Or if the home is near a dumping site, where companies have dumped chemicals and other toxic waste, that waste can start to seep into the water lines and wells, impacting the safety of the drinking water. When something like this occurs, it’s critical that homeowners have a plan to:

  1. Test the water regularly to determine its safety.
  2. Have an additional source of water in the meantime.

Safe drinking water at home will allow those living in the home to stay hydrated, nourished, and healthy rather than being susceptible to bacteria, viruses, and diseases that live in contaminated water.

Maintaining Safe Shower Water

What is the purpose of taking a shower? To get clean! So what good is cleaning up, when people are doing so with unsafe and contaminated water?

Though most people don’t regularly drink the water coming out of the showerhead, it still can get into people’s eyes, noses, and mouths. It can be washed over cuts in the skin. It’s scrubbed into a person’s hair and scalp.

Contaminated water can cause a lot of damage to a person’s health and well-being, so it’s critical that the shower water is not full of toxic chemicals, bacteria, or other diseases.

It should be clean, just as clean as the water that people drink. Clean shower water can lead to tons of benefits such as having softer skin and shinier hair, providing a more youthful appearance, and preventing cancer and other illnesses.

Filters Help Ensure Water Safety

There are many steps that homeowners can take to make sure that the water in their homes is clean and safe, but one of the best things to do is install a water filtration system.

A filtration system, whether it’s under the sink, attached to the faucet, or is a whole-home system, will help to trap dangerous chemicals, bacteria, and viruses and remove it from the water completely. Filters can prevent these pathogens from making contact with people, so everyone in the house can live a happier, healthier life.
