Why Utilize Well Tests

Whether you realize it or not, water is one of the most regularly used resources, ranking second only to oxygen in its consumption. You use it for bathing, drinking and cooking, washing your dishes and clothes, and for miscellaneous cleaning tasks. You may not have access to, or have opted to decline the use of municipal water for your house. If so, it is important to have a professional perform a well test in Sonoma County or wherever you intend to have a well.

Why Test

Well water doesn’t contain the chemicals that municipal water does in the efforts to disinfect the water. However, that doesn’t mean that it’s free from toxins.

  • Soil around your well may contain high concentrations of minerals or nitrates.
  • If there are high levels of lead, iron or mercury, they could cause illnesses for you and your family.
  • Your water could be acidic, contributing the erosion of you household plumbing.

In addition to testing for high levels of harmful minerals, bacteria and metals, you’ll want to get a well test in Sonoma County to test for other contaminants common to that county and to figure out the next steps to take so that you can enjoy your well water with piece of mind.
