Why Your Drinking Water is Funky or Foul – And How to Fix It!

A couple of years ago, my hubby asked me to point an appointment on the calendar.

“What’s this?”

“A guy is coming to test our water.”

“Oh, okay. What for?”

“Telling us the quality or something like that. We get a $100 Visa card if we let him do it.”

“Oh, okay then.”


Needless to say, three hours worth of a water-testing appointment later, we did NOT purchase the $5,000 water system the guy was trying to sell us, but we DID get the $100 Visa. Was it worth it? You got me! But what I DID learn through the process was, number one, no more letting people come over and test water. And number two, there ARE things you can do to make your water better and more heathy for your family!

So when Kaylee from Water Logic contacted me about sharing a drinking water infographic, I thought it was a great idea! We all need to be mindful of our drinking water – it’s so important to our good health!

As far as I’m concerned, the worst of the above is the fact that our water might smell like FISH. Oh my goodness. I mean, I guess the sulfate could be pretty bad, too…but ugh. Fish.

  1. All of these are great tips! You don’t have to purchase and install a super expensive water system to filter your water. There are definitely many, less expensive ways to have clean water.

  2. I don’t get why people would have to lure others into buying a product like that when clearly there are plenty of other ways to clean your water. I enjoyed reading the infographic and learning more about the water that we drink.

  3. It is a huge hassle to have them over trying to sell to you. Hurrah though that you took the good from it and are sharing this infographic too.

  4. The water in our town is terrible!! I wouldn’t drink it to save my life. I don’t know why they tried to sell you this, though. There are so many options.

  5. It is sad to think something we take for granted, water can be so polluted. We spend so much money on bottled water

  6. I’ve never had better water until we lived in Japan. I do not find the water here in the US to taste good. It tastes like dirt and iron and metal. Yuck!
