Testing Your Private Well
It’s important to check your water periodically, even if you get it from the municipal treatment facility. But if you have a well, it will be even more critical. Here’s a look at some of the more common contaminants you should test for and how often you should do so.
- Arsenic – once annually
- Coliform bacteria – once annually
- Lead – at least once annually
- Manganese – Test if you’re expecting a child since excessive amounts of this mineral can harm babies
- Nitrate – once every two years
The experts with Aquarius Water Conditioning can test for many contaminants and then show you how to address any issues that may exist.
Arsenic and Well Water
Yes, there is a chance there could be arsenic in your well water. Pesticides contain arsenic regularly, and mining operations use the chemical as well. But arsenic is also in rocks and soil. It dissolves in natural water, and this water can sometimes find its way into a private well.
But Aquarius Water Conditioning carries water filtration systems from the industry leader, Kinetico. Not only will Kinetico products get rid of arsenic, but they will also eliminate many other types of contaminants.
It’s important to realize that there are several different types of water filtration products. Your private well might be different from your neighbor’s, and you might need a different type of system. When we come to your home, we’ll look closely to see which system will work the best.
Why is getting rid of arsenic so important? One of the biggest risks of the chemical is that it can cause many health issues – and they’re very serious. Children who ingest arsenic could experience problems with their mental and physical development. These include cardiovascular diseases, respiratory diseases, and others.
Arsenic is even more dangerous because you can’t smell it, and you can’t taste it. Water testing will be the only way to know whether or not it’s in your water.
Kinetico water filtration systems from Aquarius Water Conditioning are the best around – and are backed by the best warranties in the industry. They’re very comprehensive and easy to understand. You won’t have to worry about any obscure fine print voiding these warranties.
