WHY TEST YOUR WELL WATER?

WHY TEST YOUR WELL WATER?

If your home has a privately owned well, unlike public water systems, it is up to you to make sure that your water quality is safe. Not only health issues, but other problems such as taste, color, odor and staining of clothes or fixtures, and corrosion to plumbing and fixtures can occur if there are water quality problems. Water testing allows you to properly address the specific problems of your water supply. This will help ensure that the water source is being properly protected from potential contamination, your distribution pipes, fixtures, and clothes are being protected from staining and deterioration, and that an appropriate treatment is selected.

WHAT TESTS SHOULD YOU HAVE?

WHAT TESTS SHOULD YOU HAVE?

General Water Scan is an overall comprehensive scan that will give a broad picture of the quality of your water. It includes testing for Total Coliform, E.coli, Nitrite, Nitrate, Lead, Iron, Copper, Sodium, pH, Total Dissolved Solids, Total Alkalinity, & Turbidity.

Lender Water Scan is a scan that meets many of the lender requirements. It includes testing for Total Coliform, EColi, Lead, Nitrate, Nitrite, Lead, Irone, Copper, & Sodium.

Water Testing for E. coli and Total Coliform only tests the presence of Total Coliform and E. coli.

Radon Water Scan: Just as Radon gas in the air can pose health risks, so too can radon in your water supply. If you have a private well, it is typically recommended that you test your water for Radon when an air test for Radon reveals high levels of Radon in the home, and when the home is located in an area of moderate to high susceptibility to elevated Radon in water. Based on geology and radon-in-water data collected to date, Asheville, Hendersonville, Brevard, & Rutherfordton are areas of moderate to high susceptibility.
