Please help with us with H2O filtration!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

We share a well with our neighbor. Our water comes from his cistern and he recently told us that the cistern had been leaking so he lined with a swimming pool liner!!!!

 

I had been using bottled water for drinking and some cooking but now I am really freaked put. My kids bathe in that water. Does anyone know what could be leaching into the water? It smells like a pool, I assume it tastes like plastic as well. What filter can help with with chemicals like this? I can start buying RO water for now, we are talking about digging up the water lines, re-attaching our cistern and haul our own water but I think it would make more sense to invest in a house filter.

 

Any help, input is greatly appreciated!

I would find a place to get it tested.  That would ease your mind a little and be better prepared for what you're dealing with.  You can get a whole house filter.

The neighbor told us that they had the well tested a few years back and other than an "acceptable" range of uranium all was good. My concern lies with what chemicals are leaching from the pool liner and can a regular filter screen out BPA or what ever is giving the water that plastic pool taste and smell. I would like to keep all the minerals that come from a mountain well but will sacrifice them if need be.
