3 Categories of Contaminated Water You May Experience

There are three categories of contaminated water that can infiltrate your home. These are:

Category 1: Clean Water

Clean Water

The source of a category 1 overflow may come from a broken water supply line or leaking faucet. Though its appearance looks “clean” category 1 overflow can turn to category 2 or 3 if left unattended.

Category 2: Gray Water

Gray Water

Category 2 overflow could cause discomfort or illness if not immediately cleaned. Examples of gray water overflow include:

  • Washing machine overflow
  • Dishwasher overflow
  • Toilet overflow (with urine and no feces)

Category 2 may contain bacteria and viruses. It could also escalate to category 3 if left untreated.

Category 3: Black Water

Black Water

Category 3 overflow is severely contaminated and may cause illness or death if ingested. If you’re experiencing this kind of overflow, avoid coming in contact with it at all cost. Black water contains harsh chemicals, untreated sewage or microbes. Some examples of category 3 overflow include:

  • Stagnate water that supports microbial growth
  • Toilet overflow (with feces)
  • Water from beyond the toilet trap
  • Flooding from rivers of streams

Don’t think that you can clean up toilet and other plumbing overflow on your own. Without the necessary equipment and cleaning tools, your property’s environment could worsen and become unhealthy.
