Please note: The "limit" column. That is for lab purposes AND NOT drinking water limits.

Please remember that the tests referred to were NOT on drinking water, but were done on toilet water and residues found in pipes, faucets, and fixtures. This is an important distinction to be made and understood. That water sits in pipes and fixtures longer. The composition of those residues reflects what the water was exposed to and potentially picked up on its way through household pipes. That makes those samples better indicators of CORROSION.

We are not saying that water from SSWC comes with lead and copper in it. We are saying that these results show that the SSWC water IS CORROSIVE and leaching unwanted, if not toxic, chemicals into the drinking water in susceptible households.
