Testing Water Quality:
Water from properly constructed wells is normally potable. Routine testing is performed on new wells for bacteria, mineral content, Ph, and turbidity. All of our well and pump installations are thoroughly disinfected using chlorine to kill bacteria that may have been introduced from the drilling and pump installation process. While the chlorinated water may be a temporary inconvenience, once pumped out of the system, it will provide the best chance for a potable water supply.
Local and state jurisdictions, together with some lending institutions, may require additional testing for other potential contaminants – such as arsenic, radon and various man-made chemicals.
It is W. S. Heitman Drilling & Pumps recommendation to test your well water for potability at least once a year to insure it’s safe for you and your family. The names of local laboratories which we use in your area are available from your W.S. Heitman Drilling’s project manager. These labs are state certified and prompt
