If you have water treatment equipment in your home, you should monitor whether the treatment system is doing its job by testing for the specific contaminant(s) that the system is treating. Be aware that water treatment systems are designed for specific contaminants. Treatment systems will not necessarily remove all contaminants. Periodically test your water before and after treatment to be sure the system is continuing to work properly.
If any chemical detected in your water is higher than a standard, action level or an MCL, you should:
Retest the water to confirm the exceedance
Stop drinking the water until the issue is resolved
