We put together this quick guide for you to make sure you have clean water at home!
Test Your Water Often
You are responsible for the quality of water that comes from your well. That means, you need to be certain the water is safe to drink! You should be testing fairly often.
You should use a water quality indicator, or WQI, to check for contaminants. A WQI will show you if the following are in your water:
- E. Coli
- Total Coliform
You should have the water tested yearly at least, but you may consider doing it twice a year. You also will want to test your water if there are problems with the water quality in nearby areas or notice a change in the taste or smell of your water.
Who Should Test It?
