Water Analysis & Testing CT


“Why should I have my CT well analyzed? We’ve been drinking this for YEARS!”

CT Well Water Test & Analysis CompaniesMost Connecticut residents simply do not know if their well contains bacteria or not. “We’ve been drinking that water for years and have never had a sick day in our lives.” Well, that may be true. People can sometimes develop immunities to certain strains of coliform and may never have a problem.

What you need to remember as a Connecticut resident, is that the human body is not a static system. Resistances to certain substances or organisms increase and decrease over time, immune systems become compromised, or family members move into the house (ie. marriage, birth, adoption, death of a spouse, etc) permanently or even for a short weekend visit. Any one of these can mean that someone who does not have the immunities that you have may come into contact with organisms that can cause significant gastrointestinal distress – enough to warrant hospitalization.

A simple, test can help you with that.

We come to your home or business to collect a sample to be analyzed for total coliform and E.coli bacteria. This is a presence / absence test that will statistically assure you that your well is free of coliform contamination. In most cases a full water potability test is performed, especially if you need the results for a certificate of occupancy (CO), new home construction, a mortgage or mortgage refinance both conventional as well as FHA or VA.

The water Connecticut potability test includes: coliform bacteria, e. coli bacteria, nitrates, nitrites, color, odor, pH, turbidity, chloride, hardness, sulfates, iron, manganese, sodium, and total chlorine

Your test results are available electronically in a pdf format as well as in hard copy form. All water testing results are Connecticut state certified.

When you test your water for coliform, you are actually testing to see if your CT well has been in contact with surface water. If your well has had surface water contamination, then it is likely that you may also have other organisms contaminating your water source.

A positive total coliform/E.coli indicates the source of your water contamination could have been be a single incident, such as a pump replacement or well repair or a flood that inundated the wellhead, or it could be a continuous contamination such as rock fractures, poor grouting around the well, a sinkhole, etc.

For this reason, the EPA recommends that your have a routine annual analysis for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids (TDS) and pH. Regular testing establishes a record of water quality that is useful in solving current or future problems with your home or business.

Hot Water From the Tap in CT

Why? The reason is that hot water dissolves contaminants more quickly than cold water, and many pipes in Connecticut homes contain lead that can leach into water. Lead can damage the brain and nervous system, especially in young children. Lead is rarely found in source water, but enters your water supply through corroded plumbing. The Environmental Protection Agency says that older homes are more likely to have pipes and fixtures that contain lead, but that even newer plumbing advertised as “lead-free” can still contain as much as 8 percent lead. A study published in The Journal of Environmental Health in 2002 found that tap water represented 14 to 20 percent of total lead exposure. To reduce the risk of lead exposure for your family, the E.P.A. says cold tap water should always be used for preparing baby formula, cooking and drinking. It also warns that boiling water does not remove lead but can actually increase its concentration. More information is at www.epa.gov/lead. The Conclusion: Stay safe.  Hot water from the tap should never be used for cooking or drinking. “Water Analysis in Connecticut near me in my area?” Yes. Schedule your appointment now. Call...

Drinking Water Contamination in CT

Water contamination in CT is often thought to be caused by the leeching of chemicals or some unnatural occurrence. While this is certainly the case in many instances, most forms of water contamination are simply due to naturally occurring minerals being present in your water source, which may cause deposits that clog your pipes or affect your health, when consumed in excess. Sulfur, for example, is found in rainwater as well as most rocks and soils types and is easily dissolved by water when groundwater moves through the soil. Similarly, iron is naturally occurring in underground water, rivers and lakes as well as can be released through natural deposits or through industrial, chemical waste. Serious contaminants, such as arsenic or lead, are often caused by the leaching of corroding materials and can lead to long term health problems. Connecticut groundwater, lakes, streams, and rivers can absorb a certain amount of contamination. However, due to the connectivity of a water cycle, even one rundown car dripping oil into a nearby storm sewer gate can cause pollution in thousands of gallons of water. If your water source is from a private well, there are even more reasons why your well water may be contaminated. Surface contamination is usually prevented through a surface seal to ensure that animals or insects are not present, and a screening filtration system is constructed at the bottom of the well to help reduce the amount of unwanted substances in the well itself. Depending on how old your well is and its construction determines whether or not certain contaminants enter your water. For example, an improperly capped...

Free Water Analysis & Testing in Connecticut

According to the Federal Trade Commission, public fears about the purity of our water in Connecticut and across the nation has increased dramatically over the years. Reports of leaking landfills, corroding lead pipes and crumbling gasoline storage tanks can paint a gloomy picture of toxic wastes, pesticides and other chemicals seeping into both our ground water and our wells. These fears, however, also create a perfect setting for unscrupulous salespeople to use scare tactics and fraudulent methods to sell unneeded and unnecessary water treatment devices. If you ever receive an offer at your home for a free water analysis, be aware that such offers are almost always part of a sales promotion. Sellers that advertise “free home water testing” in CT may only be interested in selling you a water treatment device, whether you need it or not. Because there is no charge for the “testing,” consumers are often willing to allow a company representative into their home to analyze their water for impurities. The Federal Trade Commission suggests that consumers take the following steps before purchasing any type of water treatment system.   Avoid “free” in-home water tests in CT. In-home analysis does not provide the specific, in-depth analysis that is required to determine if your water needs treatment and what kind of system is suited to your needs. Especially avoid dealing with salespersons who tell you that your drinking water is polluted, contaminated or bad for your family’s health based on their in home testing. Be wary of claims of government approval. Fraudulent sellers use many sales techniques. Some claim that certain government agencies require or recommend...
