Borewell water found to be unfit for drinking after analysis - Help needed, Mailardevpally Village, Rajendra Nagar, Hyderabad

Dear Sir

My home is located at Mailardevpally Village, Rajendra Nagar, Hyderabad. Our house was under construction and we dug a borewell 3 years back for water requirements of construction. Now our house is ready and we have shifted to this new house.

There is no tap water supply from the government till now in this area. So we have to use the same borewell water for all our daily needs. In October 2011 we got our borewell water tested from 'Vision Lab' and they say that this water is not suitable for drinking.

I seek advice and suggestions from the experts for the following questions:

    1) Can we use this water for dish washing?
    2) Can we use this water for cooking?
    3) Can we use this water for bathing?
    4) Can we use this water for washing clothes?

One of my friends told me to use RO water filtration.

What is RO? How much this will cost? Water is required for 6 persons on a daily basis.
Kindly help me to resolve my water problem.

I have also copied the analysis report here for your reference.

Place: Mailardevpally, Rajendar Nagar, Hyderabad.    Date: 20/10/2011
