If you have been paying attention to the news reports lately and the numerous reports of dangerous contaminants such as lead being discovered in municipal water all over the country, the safety of the nation’s drinking water is coming into question.
You should have your water professionally tested if you suspect lead may be in some of your household plumbing materials and water service lines for peace of mind. Most water systems test for lead as a regular part of water monitoring. These tests give a system-wide picture, but do not reflect conditions at a specific household faucet.
When your home’s main water source is a well, it is a good idea to get the water tested on a regular basis by professionals to keep you and your family safe from serious health issues. Your well is not monitored by any state or federal agency, so the responsibility falls on you to make sure your water is safe to use and drink. Water testing can show you if there is an abundance of contaminants in your well.
If you are using well water should request a free water analysis from an experienced water treatment company like Sci-Chem Water Treatment, and your well should be tested on a yearly and/or when:
- You notice a change in your water quality, like in smell or taste.

- Your area experiences a large flood or storm that might have affected the water quality.
- You recently had some type of maintenance or repair work done on your well.
- There is a pregnant woman or an infant under the age of six months living in your home.
