The Importance of Testing Your Home Well Water in Maine
More than half of Maine homes get their drinking water from private wells. If your home has a well, you bear the responsibility for your home well, like its testing and treating safety hazards. Our water treatment company can handle routine well water testing in Maine to keep your well water clean.
Water Testing in Maine Makes the Invisible, Visible
You may think that because your water looks and tastes fine, it’s safe, but that’s no guarantee. Invisible and odorless bacteria, viruses, and hazardous chemicals can get into your water supply, making you and your family sick. Therefore, testing your water regularly is the only way to make the invisible and odorless contaminants visible. So when you're ready, give us a call for water testing in Maine!
Did you know that a common odorless and invisible water contaminant in Maine is Arsenic. Arsenic is a naturally occurring chemical found in some rocks and soil. According to Maine’s Division of Environmental and Community Health, 1 in 10 wells in Maine contains arsenic, a known carcinogen. Unfortunately, arsenic isn’t the only health hazard that can be found in private wells. In addition, uranium and radon are commonly found also. Above all, we can not stress enough the importance of testing your well water to truly “see” what is in your water. With our well water testing services in Maine, you won't have to worry about surprise arsenic in your drinking water.

How Common are Water Quality Issues in Wells?
Water quality issues in wells are not as uncommon as one might think. According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), one study found that 23% of private wells had some level of contamination.
There are many factors that can contribute to water quality issues in wells, including but not limited to: improper well construction/maintenance, natural contaminants like arsenic or uranium, pollutants from agricultural or urban runoff, and leaching from septic systems or artificial ponds.
If you're concerned about the quality of your well water, it's best to have it tested regularly by a qualified professional.
How Often Should I Get My Well Water Tested?
In general, well water should be tested at least once a year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). If you have any questions about your specific water quality, we’ll be happy to help.
