Trihalomethanes (THMs) are created from a chemical reaction between water and the chlorine used to disinfect it. You should not drink water with a high level of THMs. This article explains some of the health risks of trihalomethanes, including reproductive problems and cancer.
Unfortunately, drinking water in Central Texas is sometimes treated with chlorination, leading to high trihalomethane levels (THMs). This Facebook post by Erin Brockovich also provides some details on water chlorination in TX.
The bad news is that you definitely do not want to be drinking THMs.
The good news is that Culligan of San Marcos can remove those harmful THMs and VOCs from your water supply.
So how can you get started?
The first thing we’ll need to do is test your water to determine the THM level.
If your water does need treatment, we can install a water treatment system that will remove those dangerous byproducts and make sure that you and your family drink nothing but pure, clean, SAFE drinking water.
High-THM water is a serious matter, so if you believe your water may be contaminated then you need to contact us right away. (Especially if you are pregnant or nursing.)
Just fill out the form below to get started with your water test.
As part of our examination, we will also:
- Test your water
- Inspect your plumbing
- Provide you with treatment options
- Make sure you’re completely educated on your water needs
- Offer full laboratory water test if you’d like an in-depth analysis
Culligan of San Marcos has been around since 1963 and we’ve been in Central Texas communities for over 56 years. You cannot serve a community for that long unless you take care of your customers.
