The maintenance of safe drinking water from an individual domestic water supply requires the use of materials that do not regrade the water by adding contaminants that increase health risk to humans. Paints, coatings, sealants or liners are used in the construction and maintenance of wells, ponds and cistern water supply systems. The accompanying list is provided as an aid to the homeowner in choosing material(s) that will not contaminate the water.
