The importance of testing well water [Video]

Do you have a well in your backyard? If the answer is yes, when was the last time it was inspected? 

The National Ground Water Association recommends well owners test their water annually. But for what? Some wells can become contaminated with bacteria, nitrates and other local contaminants over time. 

What are some sure signs a check should be conducted as soon as possible?

If there is any change in taste, odor or appearance of the water, have the well tested right away. A test should also be performed if the water is contaminated by outside flood waters or if the cap is removed.

Other signs include family members suffering from recurring gastrointestinal illnesses, as well as a history of well water contamination.
