Lime Water

Postby *leenie* » Tue Jul 22, 2008 8:38 pm

Ok So I just moved into a 100+ year old house and we have a well. Well the water has a very high lime content and is now getting some sulfur. I was wondering it its safe for Emma and the the cats to drink? If its not, they can easily be put on bottled no problem. So any input would be great. Thank You

I have no idea.. but you can get water filters that are tapped into your water line to filter this stuff.. I know at work we pay for a service its like 30 a month.. they hooked everything out and change out the filters etc.. It might be less expensive than buying bottled.. its a reverse osmosis system I think... :)

I second looking at a reverse osmosis system. Costco has one for $199.

call your local health departmet and see if they will test your water
I have been living on old farms for the past 30 years and all have had wells.
old wells/water are usually high in nitrates and that is a problem for all of you

Ill tell my Dad about that. We dont use the water for anything except baths and cleaning. All cooking and drinks are made with bottled. i just thought I read some where that lime water was bad for dog kidneys. But i cant remember where I read it

id stick to bottled until everything is in check, my dogs get bottled as i drink tap or boiled tap..

dont believe in simple tap filters or even "brita" to make it safe water..

iv seen a few water filtering plants, they possibly spend millions or more on equipment and still not be able to make it drinkable
