The first thing you need to know is the categories of water and how they differ:
- Category 1: “Clean Water” - This is water from source that is considered consumable water, such as from a broken water line or a faucet. This water if left unattended can quickly deteriorate to categories 2 or 3.
- Category 2: “Gray Water” - This water is where the significant level of contamination begins, if ingested it would cause illness. The primary sources of this category of water is usually from washing machine overflows, toilet overflow with no feces, or a dishwasher overflow. This category of water could contain bacteria or viruses and could quickly deteriorate to category 3 if left untreated.
- Category 3: “Dark Water” - This water is incredibly unsanitary and will cause severe illness or even death if ingested, and any skin contact should always be avoided. Source of Category 3 could come from any sort of outdoor flooding scenario. Water from beyond the toilet trap (sewage backup) and water that has started to support any mold growth.
