When to test your well
The Environmental Protection Agency suggests that all private wells undergo yearly testing for coliform bacteria, nitrates, and arsenic. They further advise that every two to three years, the wells should be checked for tannins, hardness, chloride, sulfate, alkalinity, iron, and copper. The best time for testing your well is during spring, as the increased rainfall percolates through the soil, affecting the quality of your well water.
Nitrates in water can pose a significant risk, particularly if you’re expecting or have a baby. So, it’s crucial to regularly test your well water to ensure its safety.
Events like flooding or construction, which disturb the ground, can lead to your well getting contaminated.
After making any repairs or replacements to your well system, it’s important to ensure everything is functioning as it should by having the water tested.
If you notice a change in your water’s taste, smell, or looks, it could be a sign of a newly developed issue that warrants water testing.
