How often should I test my Well Water?

The quality of ground water can quickly and easily change over time; even though it may smell, taste and look the same, it is highly susceptible to contamination. It is important to regularly check for changes, or contaminants in order to maintain healthy, safe drinking water. Due to its tendency for contamination, it is recommended that private wells be tested at least once a year.
Regular water testing can help you track changes over time, identify any current water problems, and make sure your drinking water is safe for consumption. Because we understand how important it is to have your drinking water tested at regular intervals, here at Rayne of Ventura, we offer free water tests. We want to make sure that you and your family are protected against water contamination, which can often go unnoticed.
The only way to know for certain if your drinking water is clean, is to have it tested by a professional. As we mentioned before, many contaminates are completely undetectable by taste, smell or appearance. A reputable water company will check for bacteria, nitrates, ions and several other dangerous substances that could unknowingly be lurking in your water supply.
Some common contaminates to test for on a regular basis are:

  • Coliform bacteria
  • Nitrates
  • Ions
  • Sulfates
  • Fluoride
  • Total dissolved solids

When it comes time to add a water filtration system in your home or office, you will want to look for a water company with an outstanding level of customer service, and performance. Here at Rayne of Ventura, we can help you choose the perfect water treatment system to match your unique water needs. We always test your water first, to determine what type of filtration or water treatment is needed, and will then recommend the correct product to alleviate any water concerns or contamination issues you may be faced with.
Remember, private wells need to be tested at a minimum of once a year, however shallow wells and surface water need to be tested more often because they can become contaminated easier. Keep in mind that many water contaminants can cause health problems that may take years to develop. You don’t want to wait too long to have your water tested, or install a water filtration system, because you could be putting you and your family in unnecessary danger.
