If you get your water from a well, there are certain things you have to take into consideration. Unlike the drinking water from a municipal water system, well water has not been treated for certain contaminants. For that reason, well water testing is recommended. Although periodic checks are always a good idea, there may be certain situations that should prompt you to get well water testing. Here are just a few instances:
- You have work done on your well. If you have a problem with your well, or you have a new well drilled, you should always get the water tested. You never know when contaminants may have entered the water supply.
- Your water quality changes. Have you noticed that your water tastes, smells, or looks different than before? If so, you should get it tested to determine the reason for the changes.
- Other area wells are found to be contaminated. Unfortunately, a chemical or sewage spill can have a big impact on the water supply. If you hear reports of contaminated wells in your area, call for well water testing immediately.
- There have been issues near your well that could have caused runoff. Have you experienced flooding in your area? Or is there construction or land clearing going on nearby? If so, you never know what may have made its way into your water supply.
So how can you make sure that your well water is as fresh, clean, and pure as it can possibly be? The answer is water filtration.
