        Learn What's In Your Water                     

This page is intended to help you find and understand your city's water quality report 

My Free Offer*:

Call me and we'll review your water report together 


9 AM - 5 PM, Mountain Time

NOTE: You are most welcome to email a copy of your water report to me. Be sure to follow up with a phone call so that we may review it together. Or we'll find it online. I will gladly go over it and tell you what products I recommend specifically and what they cost. I do not respond to water reports by email unless you call as I need additional information from you in order to make a recommendation. This offer is only for people who do not already own water treatment equipment.

You can email your report to me at  jim @ cleanairpurewater dot com

To find your water report go to google and enter the city you live in followed by the words 'water quality report'. I've provided an example below. That should take you to a search page that contains the report.  If not, then search for the city itself and look for the water department.  If you pay someone other than your city for your water then enter those search terms instead, for instance 'United Water, NJ' for United Water of New Jersey. In the example below there is a recording of my review of a water report with a customer who lives in Durham.

As an example I've provided the page with water reports from the City of Durham, NC.  If you find the current report you can click on that link you'll be able to read Durham's water quality report.

Along with it, I have recorded my review of this report for Howie Jacobson, a customer.  If you open that city's report and listen to the recording below you can follow along and learn something about how to read your own water report. 

Understanding Durham's Water Quality Report

The audio is an mp3 file that will open in your audio player.  I'd suggest you first open the water quality report and glance at it, then click on the audio file and try to follow my comments and Howie's questions as we go through the report.  The audio is about 40 minutes long so grab a glass of water and listen.

As you go through the report you'll see a column titled: MCL.  MCL means Maximum Contaminant Level.  Here's what that means:

USEPA and Maximum Contaminant Levels

Here's a National Geographic article that briefly mentions that there are chemicals and pathogens in water that are not listed in your water report. That's why calling me is a better option than going it on your own.

 * offer is free to people who do not already own water filtration equipment. If you're looking for a second opinion on something you've already purchased I charge for that consulation.


“After my daughter at five years old was diagnosed with brain cancer, I frantically searched for contributing factors. It was when my water was tested and shown to have significantly higher toxins than what is suggested for health that I called Jim. I had heard of Sweetwater recommend from a clean living advocate online. Jim reviewed my water report with me in order to customize a plan of action that was both affordable and would give us the cleanest water possible.. To this day I trust only our water and our ice cubes show an incredible difference! Thanks Jim and Sweetwater for helping us live healthy!”
