Why Is It Important to Have Your Water Tested?, Taylorsville, Utah

Water wells are an excellent water supply option for many homeowners, as they typically require little upkeep. However, one important aspect of routine water well maintenance is having your water tested professionally. While municipal water supplies are routinely checked for potential contaminants, well water is the responsibility of homeowners. Below, Advanced Well Drilling & Services in Taylorsville, UT, explains the importance of water testing.

Why Is Well Water Testing Critical?

Testing the quality of your well water is crucial for maintaining safe, high-quality drinking water. Contaminants such as viruses, parasites, and harmful bacteria are undetectable to the naked eye and often have no taste. For this reason, the only way to be certain your water is safe is to have it tested regularly.

A few examples of possible threats are coliform bacteria, which could be harmful to your health, as well as high nitrate levels and excess fluoride. In areas where arsenic, lead, or radon may be present, these substances should also be tested for. Lastly, testing for E. Coli will ensure no sewage has entered your water supply through runoff.
