Uranium is a metal that has no smell or taste and is naturally present in bedrock. When a drinking water
well is drilled into bedrock containing uranium, it can get into the well water. The only way to find out if your well has high uranium is to test for it.
Most ingested uranium is eliminated from the body. However, a small amount is absorbed and carried through the bloodstream and can affect the kidneys over time. Bathing and showering with water that contains uranium should not pose a health concern, therefore, it is not necessary to treat all the water in your home, but only the water you drink. Although, we do have whole house systems available if you feel the need to filter all the water coming into your home. Decisions about treatment systems depend on many factors, including what else is in your water; If you have elevated radium in addition to uranium, you will need to select a system that will effectively remove both contaminants.
