3 Questions You Should Ask Your Water Testing Specialist, Lancaster, Wisconsin

There are many reasons why you may need to contact a water testing specialist at some point. Perhaps you’re buying a home and want to confirm the well water is safe. Or, maybe you own a business and need to test the quality to ensure the employees can safely drink it. Regardless of your goals, there are a few essential questions to ask when contacting a specialist.

What to Ask a Water Testing Expert

1. Does Your Test Cover All Major Contaminants?

If you’re hiring someone to test the water, make sure they’re looking for anything and everything that causes harm. You may not be familiar with every contaminant that could be in the water, but you should confirm that the testing process is as comprehensive as possible. Ask for a detailed explanation of all the contaminants the team tests for.

2. What Can I Do if There Are Contaminants?

The test will hopefully reveal that your water is perfectly safe for consumption, but you can’t be certain this is the outcome. Ask the team about steps to take to purify the water if contaminants are present. This gives you a chance to research solutions ahead of time.

3. How Often Should I Test My Water?

Water testing isn’t something to schedule only once. In fact, Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources recommends testing your drinking and well water once a year. Ask the specialists to help you develop a proper testing schedule. With their help, your water will always be safe.
