Who Needs Water Testing?
There is no hard and fast rule when it comes to who can benefit from water testing. It depends on many different factors. You should consider not only health of your family, but also proximity of your well to septic systems, the materials in your home’s plumbing system, and the overall taste and coloration of your water. Homes with young children or residents with immune system issues should be especially vigilant.
It is important to note that the fact that your water is not making you sick does not mean that it is of high quality, nor does getting your water from a public water system mean that it is exceptional. Yes, the public supply will test water and monitor its quality, alerting you to issues. It cannot account for the condition of your pipes and other issues beyond its reach, though.
