Three types of contaminated water

Clean water is just as it sounds; it’s clean, it doesn’t possess a considerable risk to anyone’s health. A broken water supply line, tub or sink overflow or an appliance malfunction that involves a water supply line will cause a clean water leak.
Grey water can cause illness as it can be contaminated toilets overflowing or sub pump failures. If the water isn’t removed within 48 to 72 hours, it’s then considered black water.
Black water is the most severe of the three; it can cause extreme illness. It can be caused by sewage leaks, ground surface water or standing water.
