Is tap water in Kansas safe?

Yes, tap water in Kansas is generally considered safe to drink. The state's water supply is regulated by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) to ensure compliance with federal drinking water standards. Water treatment facilities are responsible for treating and testing the water to meet quality and safety requirements. While tap water quality can vary by location and local factors, stringent regulations help maintain the safety and quality of drinking water in Kansas, reducing health risks for residents.

How can I test the quality of water at my home?

To assess your home's water quality, several options are available. First, consider professional testing through certified laboratories or local health departments, which provide accurate analysis of various contaminants. Home water testing kits, available from reputable suppliers, offer simpler tests for common issues like pH, chlorine, lead, and bacteria. Additionally, observe any unusual odors, colors, or tastes in your tap water, as these could indicate problems. For those using public water systems, review annual Consumer Confidence Reports from utility providers. Consulting water experts, health departments, or environmental agencies can provide tailored guidance based on your concerns. Regular testing ensures safe and quality drinking water.

How often should drinking water quality be tested?

Drinking water quality should be tested regularly, with frequency varying based on factors like water source, local regulations, and potential contamination risks. Private well owners might need more frequent testing, at least annually, for various contaminants. Public water systems are regularly monitored and tested by authorities. It's recommended to consult local health departments, water experts, or guidelines provided by regulatory agencies to determine the appropriate testing schedule for your specific circumstances.

What is wrong if my water has a rusty color?

A rusty color in your water typically suggests the presence of iron or manganese, which can leach into the water from corroded pipes or natural deposits. It may also indicate sediment buildup in your plumbing system. While not necessarily harmful, rusty water can stain fixtures and laundry. Flushing your pipes, installing a sediment filter, or treating the water with a water softener can mitigate the issue. Consulting a plumber or water specialist can help diagnose the source and recommend solutions.

What could be wrong if I smell a strange odor from my water?

A strange odor in your water could indicate various issues, including bacterial contamination, algae growth, or the presence of certain chemicals like sulfur or chlorine. It might also signal problems with your plumbing system or water source. Testing your water for contaminants and checking your plumbing for leaks or corrosion can help identify the cause. Addressing the issue promptly ensures safe and pleasant-tasting water for consumption and daily use. Consulting with a water specialist or local utility can provide further guidance.

If you don’t know the answers to these questions call LBA Services and we can help.

  • What is in my drinking water? While municipalities regularly test their water supplies, they can’t test the water all the way to the faucet in your home. The only way to know for sure is to have your water tested, especially if you get your water from a private, unregulated source.
  • How do I know if my tap water is safe to drink? Immediate symptoms, such as frequent gastro-intestinal problems, can indicate a serious problem. Water testing can give you peace of mind, and is recommended by the EPA for those on private wells.
  • Why does my drinking water taste funny? Water that tastes salty, sulphuric or metallic can be caused by several issues, including the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hydrogen sulfide, metals or total dissolved solids (TDSs).
  • Why is my water cloudy? Cloudy or frothy water may be caused by high levels of TDSs or contamination by detergents.
  • How do I know if I have hard water? Hard water has higher levels of calcium and magnesium. Hard water is safe to drink, but may make your skin dry and itchy, leave stains on clothes after washing and make it harder to lather soap.
  • Why does my water smell? The most common cause of smelly water is sulfur, which gives it a distinctive “rotten egg smell.” Often, high sulfur problems are caused by problems with your water heater or in your well.

While these are some of the answers based on common problems, many factors can prevent the water in your home from being as fresh and clean as possible. It’s almost impossible to know exactly what’s in your water, and at what levels, without a water test.
