A good source of drinking water is one of the most basic and essential of human needs. If you have a well, you need to ensure the water is free of contaminants and the system is working properly, whether it’s used for livestock, crops, or your own family. Well water testing on a regular basis is important to ensuring a safe and reliable source of clean water.

Harmful bacteria, viruses, and other microbes are nearly impossible to detect by sight or taste, and can cause serious illness. Chemical contaminants can seep into groundwater and cause long-term health problems that may not appear for months. It is important to identify these problems with the assistance of a qualified technician.
Well testing services offered by Perry’s Pump Repair in Gainesville, FL, entail checking for the presence of coliform bacteria and other microorganisms. Testing well water can also determine the presence of surface contaminants with proven health risks, such as nitrates, which impair the blood’s ability to use oxygen, and sulfates, which create digestive problems. These chemicals can appear as the result of runoff from fertilizer or industrial use. There is often a possibility of overuse of pesticides in surrounding areas.
Testing well water involves checking your water for total dissolved solids, which is the number of particles accumulating in your system. All too often, contaminated water contains unusual levels of sodium, chlorides, fluoride, manganese, iodine, and common iron oxide (rust). Significant quantities of any of these can ruin the taste of water to the point where it’s unpalatable, and in high concentrations pose health risks. More dangerous compounds such as uranium, selenium, and arsenic can be detected through proper well water testing. The level of pH is always measured to determine your water’s acidity.
Private well testing should be done regularly, but that also applies to commercial concerns, including decorative ponds and fountains which can become sources of contamination.
Frequent and regular testing will establish data to help identify changes, determine the sources and extent of any contamination, and also suggest courses of treatment. It is important to identify the problem, including disrepair to the pump, leaks from lines or holding tanks, or inoperative switches and relays.
At Perry’s Pump Repair, we have our own private lab that is not only able to test for contaminants such as chemicals, particles, and bacteria, but also more hidden contaminants such as lead, nitrile, nitrates, bactin, and minerals.
