Water Testing

Dependable Water Testing & Treatment

Making sure your drinking water is safe to drink is a top priority. This is because water quality can vary even within the same area. Although you may be confident that your drinking water is safe, it’s still a good idea to have your private well’s drinking water tested to rule out possible contamination.

What Are the Benefits of Testing Well Water?

There are several benefits of having your well water tested.

Water testing provides:

  • Information about specific pollutants and contamination
  • Treatment options for clean water solutions
  • Basis for future water tests
  • Peace of mind for you and your family

When Should Well Water Be Tested?

The answer to this question depends on your personal circumstances. The standard for testing your Woodbury well water is once per year.

It is recommended to have your drinking water tested when the well, water pipes or pump of your Woodbury home has been replaced or repaired to eliminate the possibility of your water being contaminated by traces or fragments of hazardous work materials.

Another reason to have your water tested is if you are planning to have a baby, are pregnant, have a child less than 6 years old or need the water tested for fluoride if you have a child under 12 years old.

Signs That Your Water Needs To Be Tested

There are several signs that your Woodbury well water needs testing. You should not continue to ignore these signs because the safety level of your drinking water may have already been compromised:

  • Drinking water tastes or smells bad
  • Your laundry and plumbing fixtures are stained
  • You have heavily rusted, crumbling plumbing/pipes
  • You have lead-based plumbing
  • The water looks foamy, cloudy or tinted
  • You experience ongoing gastrointestinal problems
  • Your soap and scaly residues fail to lather
  • Your water tastes briny or has the smell of gas

Other signs that your Woodbury well water may be contaminated is the fast deterioration of water treatment equipment. If you have hard water or live in an area where very frequent agricultural, gas drilling, coal or other mining activities; or factory, landfill, dumping, gas station or dry-cleaning operations are taking place, it is wise to have your water checked for possible contamination.
