I know this may sound silly, but one of my concerns about moving to the farm was the water. In L.A., we import our water from other states – getting it from your own property seemed, somehow, wrong. Plus my L.A. water is constantly tested – it’s unhealthy and foul tasting, of course, but at least I know why.
Fortunately we found the UL Drinkwell program and, while I don’t want to sound like a commercial, they cost less than a third of what others charge, test for a full range of contaminants, are very convenient, and you really should use them. Seriously, we got our results back today and everything is fine. The water is a little hard but, again, in L.A. the water qualifies as igneous rock, so it’s not an issue.
