Keep you and your family safe from the dangers of contaminated water. Below are the classifications of water to help you identify the waters that may be harmful to your family.

Clean Water:

This is water that does not hold a threat to you or your family. It is water that can come from a broken pipe and that can be considered clean. This water however, can quickly turn into the next category, grey water within 48 hours if it becomes contaminated.

Grey Water:

This water is category two and may pose possible health risks to your family. Grey water could be water from anywhere but that has been sitting for more than 48 hours. Examples of this water would be aquariums, waterbeds, and clogged sinks.

Black Water:

Black water is a definitive health risk. This water includes floodwater and sewage water. Sewage is a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, fungi, and even viruses. These viruses can have very harmful effects.
