Water & Pets - What Could Be In The Water You & Your Pets Are Drinking...

All public water systems contain some level of one or more unhealthful chemicals. Regulations only require periodic testing of about 86 toxic
chemicals. There are now more than 75,000 chemicals used in our society with more than 1,000 new ones being developed each year.  So far,
more than 2,100 toxic chemicals of the more than 75,000 patented chemical compounds in use today have been detected in America's water
systems.  Some of the most common toxins in tap water from the condensed EPA's safe water guidelines are listed below:
