Depend on a private water supply for your drinking water? The experts at Carter’s My Plumber explain why it’s important to test your water.

How do we know if our water supply is safe?

It’s important to have well water testing done. Many individuals live in an area where they depend on a private well supply for drinking water, whether it be in a small community, on the outskirts of a city or in a rural area. We automatically assume the water is safe to drink. How would we know though? More often than not, no one is testing your water. Many times there aren’t regulations in regards to the quality of private water supplies, like a well. Well Water Testing is the only way to know your water supply is safe.

How do we know when to do well water testing?

The answer is simple: all the time. We just don’t know when our water quality might change. Remember these events as red flags to test your water:

  • Change in your water’s color, taste, or odor
  • A growing family
  • Moving into a new home
  • Unexplained gastro-intestinal illness in anyone drinking your tap water
  • If someone in your family has or develops a weak immune system from an illness or medical treatment

For private well owners it is recommended to test at least once a year for bacteria and nitrates.

Clear water doesn’t always mean safe water!

well water testingMany water contaminants are invisible and tasteless so the only way to ensure your water supply is safe is to test it. Well water testing is an important maintenance to be completed regularly. Bacterial water quality can change over time and can be impacted by extreme weather events, land-use changes, or a nearby failing septic system. Getting your water tested will help determine the problem and help make the best water treatment choice easier.
