How much time do you spend thinking about the well that provides you and your family with water? If you’re like many people, odds are that you don’t think about it much at all. In the back of your mind, you know it’s out there, and every time you turn on a faucet, you get water. Until and unless that changes, it probably doesn’t cross your mind much. Do you know what’s in your water though? If not, you should! That’s one of the reasons that our Warrenton VA well water testing service is so important!
Not only does testing at regular intervals give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your water supply is safe for human consumption, it also has a few other benefits besides, including:
- Regular testing will allow you to spot problems while they’re still in their formative stages before they get bad enough to become genuine health hazards.
- If you’ve had problems in the past, ongoing testing will allow you to be sure that whatever actions you took to address those issues were effective, and if they were not, allow you to plan to take additional action as needed.
- Regular testing also allows you to collect data over time that will give you the ability to spot long term trends in changes to your water that would be virtually impossible to detect otherwise.
Our recommendation is this: If you get your water from a spring-fed source or a shallow well, take advantage of our Warrenton VA well water testing service every six months. If your well is deeper, testing once a year should suffice. The reason we make the exception for shallow wells and spring-fed sources is that they’re more susceptible to contamination.
Of the various tests we offer, far and away the most common is the basic potability test. That’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s designed to ensure that your well water is safe for human and livestock consumption.
In addition to that, we offer a range of other tests under the umbrella of our Warrenton VA well water testing services. Here are a few:
1) Fluoride Test – Fluoride is actually very good for you, but too much of it in your water can lead to dental problems with long term consumption.
2) The Total Dissolved Solids Test – This one is a measure of how many inorganic substances are present in your water supply and lists them by type and amount present.
3) The Coliform Bacteria Test – Is similar to the total dissolved solids test, but it tests for the presence of microorganisms.
