When Should Well Water Be Tested?

Healthy Drinking water In KissimmeeIf your family’s drinking water comes from a private well, it’s important to have your water tested regularly. Listed below are 12 times we recommend you have your drinking water tested:

  1. Immediately if you have no recent test results or any record of previous tests.
  2. Annually for bacteria and for nitrates if you live in an agricultural area or have an on-site septic system. The best time to perform these annual tests is in the spring.
  3. Whenever you notice any change in the taste, color or odor of your water.
  4. Once a year in special situations: someone in the household is pregnant or nursing and if there’s an infant under the age of six months.
  5. When there’s an unexplained illness in the family.
  6. When your neighbors find a dangerous contaminant in their water.
  7. When there is a spill of chemicals or fuels into or near your well.
  8. After disinfection, within one or two weeks, to make sure the water is pure.
  9. After maintenance or repair work on your well.
  10. After any flooding in or near the well, to determine if flood water carried bacteria or other contaminants into the well system.
  11. Before installing any water treatment device.
  12. Annually after your water treatment system is installed to ensure the system is working properly.
