Hi all--
I was doing testing for my fish aquarium of Ammonia levels and was surprised that just after a big water change the tank had high Ammonia level.  So I tested it from the tap and the Ammonia level was the same, high!  And I've been drinking the stuff like crazy trying to cure my chronic UT irritation.  I have a deep well, 300ft with 180 ft of casing and odorless tasteless good water, or so I thought.  I live near a titanium mine and have a wide streak through my land.  Otherwise, I live in an undeveloped area.  There is a supposedly clean landfill about a mile or so away.  Now I'm worried.  Usually ammonia is due to biologicals in the water, but with a deep well through the rock, there should be no problem there.  Maybe my trailer pipes are gunked up, I don't know.  But now I wonder how many other people with chronic UT problems with no infection might be in the same boat as me.  It was just because I keep fish and test the water that I even figured it out.  I guess God told me to pick up that Ammonia test kit.  Now I've got to go to the health dept and/or DNR to see what to do.  Perhaps that is normal for this area, I don't know.  I just thought this might be helpful thing if people are having trouble, the health dept and dept of nat resources will test your water free of charge and it might be worth it.  Boiling water would not fix this problem, since it is a chemistry problem as well as a possible bio one.  If anyone is environmentally savvy on this stuff, esp. the mining issues -- they swear its a clean operation, no chemicals, I'd be interested.
 
Thanks for listening.  I'm on bottled water off antibiotics.  I still have trouble from the hormonal side, but the infection feeling part is gone.
Love, Marji

NO WAY!  Wow, you must be so glad to have bought that testing kit.  I did a quick search on google and found this website.  Just scroll down to the "Health Considerations" part of it. 
 
Keep that bottled water supply handy!  Let us know what comes of this.  I'm glad the infection feeling is gone for you.  I hope you can clear it all up asap.
 
Hugs,
Ginny

Thanks so much Ginny, that link is extremely helpful, just the right thing. It sounds like for many people the level in my water is at high threshold of acceptable, but given my liver problems and other problems it is too much for me. That may explain why my boyfriend is not affected as much, but he also drinks mostly soda, though sometimes makes iced tea with it. I really appreciate it, it answered some questions. I'm thinking it must be high because my fish were floundering and the food turning sour fast in the tank and it all went away when I added Amquel, which neutralizes the ammonia. So if it hurts my fish, who have a pretty decent threshold for it, it must be too high. Thanks again so much.
Love, Marji
