Why is water quality testing is important?

Testing a well’s water quality on a regular basis is an important part of maintaining a safe and reliable water source. The well water test results allow you to properly address the specific problems and ensure that the water source is being protected from potential contamination.

It is important to test the suitability of your water quality for its intended use, whether it be livestock watering, chemical spraying, or drinking water. Coliform in well water can be hazardous to those who come in contact with it.

How can well water be harmful?

Harmful bacteria, parasites, and viruses are invisible to the naked eye, so water which looks and tastes good may not necessarily be safe to drink. Microbes can exist in surface and groundwater supplies, and can cause immediate sickness in humans if not properly treated.

Certain chemical contaminants that are sometimes found in a water source can cause long term health problems that take years to develop. Frequent water testing will identify unsafe water and ensure that the treatment system is treating the water properly.

Due to the wide variety of bacteria it could cause the following health issues:

Gastrointestinal illnesses and infections.
Methemoglobinemia or “blue baby syndrome”.
Acute and chronic toxicity, liver, kidney, and intestinal damage, anemia, and cancer.
Damage to their kidneys, liver, circulatory system, nervous system, and reproductive system.
Excess consumption of fluoride during formative period of tooth enamel may cause dental fluorosis, tooth discoloration and/or pitting of teeth.
