Types of Sewage Water We Can Handle
Sewage water comes in three categories, each with its own challenges and solutions. The list of categories includes:
Category 1: Clean Water
This water is considered "clean" primarily because it looks clean. But it won't remain that way for long if the floodwater is not addressed quickly. Clean water typically comes from broken or leaking pipes and can escalate into Category 2 or Category 3 water if it sits for an extended stretch and attracts contaminants.
Category 2: Gray Water
Among the creators of gray water are toilet overflows, water from your sink, and water that leaks from your appliances.
Each of these may contain contaminants and debris that could harm your health. Bacteria and viruses can be found in gray water because of the presence of food particles, dirt, and urine.
Category 3: Black Water
This is the most dangerous of all sewage water categories because it contains contaminants that can cause serious illnesses. Some of the contaminants you can find in black water include feces, untreated sewage, garbage, and chemicals. This type of water typically enters your home via a clogged toilet with fecal matter or flood from an outside water source. It can occur if water has been left to stand for a long period of time.
