Does the water in your home have a strange odor or color? Does your skin feel rough after a shower? Many of the issues associated with common illnesses lead back to water quality in a home. Water Quality Sampling and Testing isn’t exactly promoted to a large extent but it is one of the most important procedures because it deals directly with the health of you and your family.
The EPA and The Florida Department of Health recommends testing your well water annually to detect problems early. Private well owners are responsible for ensuring that their OWN well water is safe to drink. Contaminants such as E. coli, Coliform, Nitrates, Lead, etc… can find their way into your drinking water in a number of different ways such as livestock areas and fertilizer applications, pesticide applications, improper disposal of toxic and hazardous wastes and more.
