Well Water

Unlike city water, private wells are not regulated by the government, making testing and treatment even more crucial. Test for bacterial contamination, lead, pesticides, iron, and other indicators of poor water quality. Contaminated wells can cause numerous health issues.

Why You Should Test Your Tap Water

There are various ways to gauge whether your water needs to be tested. If your drinking water's color, taste, or smell is becoming noticeable, it's time to test. Ignoring symptoms of contamination can lead to health issues and even disease.

Discolored water is often a red flag to homeowners that their water may be unsafe. Yellow, brown, red, or orange signifies rust, iron, or oxygen in your tap water. Organic compounds can also impact the color of the water.

If you notice a chlorine or metallic taste, testing can help you pinpoint the source. Metallic tasting water could indicate that your pipes are beginning to deteriorate. Chlorine is a common chemical used in water to prevent disease. However, if the chlorine levels are too high, the chlorine levels might be too high.

Odors coming from your sinks are almost impossible to ignore. The smell of rotten eggs or sulfur is the most common and could indicate bacterial growth. Sulfur odors are most common in homes with private wells and are a sign of organic compounds decaying. While sulfur bacteria is not harmful, sulfide gas and coliform bacteria could pose a health concern. Coliform bacteria and nitrate are contaminants that could cause significant health issues. To be safe, it's essential to get your water tested and seek proper treatment.
