Having a well on your property is not just important to your survival, it’s also a powerful symbol of freedom and independence. It’s a small but important way of planting your flag and declaring that you will not be beholden to some outside agency for one of the critical things you need to live. That’s only true though, if the water coming out of your well is safe to drink, which is why our Clifton VA well water testing is so important and in such demand in the region.
Most people don’t spend much time thinking about their well or their water quality until and unless there’s a big, noticeable problem, but that’s not a good approach. By the time you notice an issue with your water supply, the problem is usually bad enough that it’s starting to make you and your family sick.
We recommend taking advantage of our Clifton VA well water testing at least once a year, but note that if you get your water from a spring-fed system or a shallow well, you’ll probably want to have your water supply tested at six month intervals, because these sources are much more prone to contamination.
Here’s another reason testing is so critical: If a prior test revealed a problem with your water supply and you took steps to correct the issue, you want to check behind yourself to make sure that the action you took actually fixed the problem. If it didn’t, then you’ll want to take some stronger action. Regular testing will tell the tale.
We offer an incredibly robust Clifton VA well water testing service, and we offer a variety of different tests.
Far and away the most common one is the basic potability test, which is simply a test conducted to ensure that your water supply is safe for human and livestock consumption. Depending on your specific needs though, we offer a variety of other types of tests. Here are a few:
1) A fluoride test – A certain level of fluoride is actually good for you. It is an essential micronutrient, after all. Unfortunately, too much of a good thing can be bad, and if there’s too much fluoride in your water, it could lead to dental problems down the road for you and your family.
2) A coliform bacteria test – This test will check for and measure the concentration of microorganisms in your water supply that are potentially hazardous to your health.
3) A dissolved solids test – living organisms aren’t the only things that can be found in your drinking water. This test measure the number and types of inorganic substances you’ve got in your water.
