Many Colorado Springs homeowners rely on private wells for everything from drinking to doing laundry. If you fall into this category, it is important to make sure that the water in your well is clean and safe to drink. You also need to make sure that the equipment that allows your well to operate is in good shape so that you don’t suddenly find yourself without water. The best way to accomplish this is by having a well test to verify that the flow from the pump is adequate.
Quality Of The Water Is Important
Although contaminated wells are relatively rare, there is a slight possibility that your water may be polluted. Even if it looks totally clear and doesn’t have any unusual odors, it still could be full of dangerous pathogens. This includes bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microscopic contaminants that are impossible to see with the naked eye.
Apart from the health-related risks of contaminated well water, there are other reasons why you should have the well evaluated. Even if it is safe to drink, it may not be optimal in terms of its composition. For instance, if your water is too hard, it may cause your appliances to malfunction. Certain types of contaminants are safe to drink but can alter the taste or smell of the water, as well. By analyzing your well water, these contaminants can be identified and eliminated, helping to give you clean, fresh water instead.
Even if you have had your well water tested in the past, it is important to test it regularly. The conditions of the groundwater can change without notice. Through regular testing, you can catch any of these changes early on, allowing you to keep your water healthy and safe to drink. Most industry professionals recommend annual testing.
We Also Test Your Well’s Ability To Supply Water
The test that we perform takes a couple of hours to complete. The process involves analyzing how effective your well is at filling a 5-gallon bucket with water over an extended period of time. The information that we gather can help us spot any problems with your well that could be affecting its efficiency or performance.
