Water Testing

Free In Home Water Testing Near YouMany people live under the perception that the water from the water supply, especially the water made available to us by those large municipal tanks is contaminated, and not safe to consume. This may come as a surprise to many that the majority of us are served with water that is safe to drink, and the water from the municipal water system is not all that bad. However, depending on the location of the water body, it is recommended to get the water tested from time to time. For instance, well water should be tested occasionally for coliform bacteria and the water available in the agricultural areas should be tested now and then for nitrate compounds. Properties that are more than 30 years of age must get the water tested as well. The plumbing pipes are usually joined by lead solder, which may be a potential reason for increased lead percentage in the water. For the sake of our health, it is necessary to get the water quality tested. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) requires water tests for bacteria, nitrates, nitrites, and lead.

Other reasons a water test may be warranted:

  • The lender may require a water test before loan approval
  • well located downstream from a septic system
  • use of lawn fertilizers, salt, or de-icers near the well

Yearly testing may be advisable in certain situations:

  • pregnant or nursing household member
  • unexplained illnesses in the family
  • any change in taste, odor, color, or clarity of the water
  • a neighbor tests positive for contaminants in their water
  • any dumping of chemicals, pesticides, or fuels into or near your well
  • if any part of your good system has been replaced or repaired

What Tests Should I Have Done?

Water is a life-saving element, but can as well become a life-threatening entity if consumed along with the elements that may lead to various diseases and health issues. Water testing is a complicated process that should be done by experts for the best and reliable results. Hence, it is always recommended to get experts involved rather than doing it yourself. However, if you want, there are certain tests that anyone can perform with the help of the equipment and water testing kits available in the market.
The most common things that need to be checked during the water testing are the presence of contaminants such as any existing microbes and the pH level of the water to check its nature. Oxygen levels, the presence of nitric compounds, the presence of salts, and many other factors can be checked during water testing.

Some of the elements are:

  • Temperature Testing
  • pH Testing
  • Chloride Testing
  • Salinity testing
  • Dissolved Oxygen Testing
  • Nitrate and Phosphates
  • Pesticides
  • Redox
  • Electrical conductivity

Water tests are reliable when done by reputable laboratories as they have the means to thoroughly examine the water being pumped into your house. However, you can also do water testing at home to check for the basic elements using the water testing kits available in the market.
A standard water test is the basic level testing of water for the presence of coliform bacteria, salts, nitrites, nitrates, sulphates salinity, pH, any other dissolved minerals, and the hardness of the water. It is to examine whether the water is safe for consumption.
