Trace Amounts of Medications Found in Drinking Water

Cornerstone Pros protects Floridians with water treatments

Land O Lakes, FL -- (SBWire) -- 12/03/2019 --LAND 'O LAKES, FL—World Antibiotic Awareness Week is this Nov. 18 to Nov. 24. While the focus of the week is learning about the safe use of antibiotics, we also think it's important to gain insight into where antibiotics can show up—often unexpectedly. One of those places is in drinking water! Thankfully, Cornerstone Pros is here to help. In addition to performing dependable AC and heat pump installations in Pasco County, FL, and beyond, this company installs water purification and filtration systems, too.

According to a number of studies, trace concentrations of prescription drugs, over-the-counter drugs and veterinary medications have been found in drinking water, wastewater and other water sources. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says they enter the water system through human and animal waste. Showering and swimming also can result in these substances getting into water systems. Manufacturing plants and hospitals are another source of these substances getting into the water supply.

Right now, there are few studies available on the health effects of these substances in drinking water. However, it's a good idea to take a cautious approach with a water purification or filtration system. Doing so will protect families against other contaminants compromising the quality of water in homes: harmful disinfection byproducts, chemicals, cysts, viruses, bacteria, chlorine and more.

Cornerstone Pros recommends water testing to help determine the best water purification or filtration system for each household's specific needs. This skilled and experienced company offers a variety of water treatment solutions. Check them out online.

In addition to removing harmful contaminants, bad tastes and odors from drinking water, Cornerstone Pros can help eliminate cold showers, too. It offers replacements for hot water heaters in Hillsborough, FL, and beyond!
