water testing

  • If you receive your water from a private well, you’re ultimately responsible for your family’s water quality. While there are many organic and inorganic contaminants that are both naturally occurring and manmade, most can be easily detected through water analysis, some do not impact water quality, and almost all can be dealt with through some form of water treatment.


  • As a homeowner, your well is probably the most important asset you own. Your health and your family’s wellbeing rely on your well providing safe, high-quality drinking water. If you own a private well, you are responsible for scheduling periodic water testing and treating for any problems that water testing may uncover.


  • We often talk to homeowners who want to know how often they should test the quality of their well water. Because there is little to no regulation of well water quality depending on where you live, making sure well water is safe to drink is the responsibility of the homeowner. How often you should test depends on where you live, if there are known sources of contamination nearby or if there have been problems with the well water at your home before.
