Testing the quality of your Durham water regularly is an essential component to ensuring the safety and reliability of your drinking and household water. Even if you have a suspicion that your water should be treated, until a proper analysis of your present water source, the right treatment option cannot be accurately evaluated.
Water testing is the only way to be certain that your water is safe to drink or if problems are present which is why most lenders require an analysis when you are purchasing or refinancing a home or property with a private water source.
All tests are certified for FHA, VA, HUD, USDA loans as well as Conventional mortgages and re-fi's.
When it comes to Durham well water, harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites can be present, and can only be determined through a laboratory test. These invisible contaminants can sometimes cause severe illness and require medical attention. Regular water testing and subsequent treatment, if necessary, can ensure that your water is safe to drink and use for household purposes.
Water quality in Connecticut can change, sometimes suddenly, so regular testing can help track contamination levels over time as well as ensure that the treatment options you select are working effectively. It is important that private well water be tested at least once a year, and if your well is shallow or your drinking water is provided by more surface water sources, it is essential to have your water tested seasonally to closely monitor potential contamination.
There are a number of different tests that can be conducted. The basic water potability test includes:
Basic Potability Test (includes: coliform bacteria, e. coli bacteria, nitrates, nitrites, color, odor, pH, turbidity, chloride, hardness, sulfates, iron, manganese, sodium, and total chlorine)
Nitrates are often present in groundwater, and is an important contaminant to test for especially if your household includes a baby under six months, as high nitrate concentrations can inhibit the ability of the blood to transport oxygen.
The presence of coliform bacteria is especially important to check for in (town), as these unwanted microorganisms can sometimes cause serious human health implications.
You may wish to have your Durham water undergo more stringent testing than simply a water potability test in order to ensure that your water is completely free of all contaminants, especially if you suspect that a particular contaminant may be present in your water. Some examples include:
- VOC’s (volitile organic chemicals)
- Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon (TPH)
- Pesticides & Herbisides
