3 Main Reasons
People Don’t Test Their Well Water
THEY DON'T KNOW THAT THEY SHOULD
Bacteria testing is recommended at least once a year according to public health and environmental authorities. And congratulations, you just took a great first step!
It doesn’t have to be. You’ve already got this simple screening kit as a starting point.
THEY DON'T KNOW HOW
Not to worry. Test kits generally come with step-by-step directions. Plus, we’ve included some additional pointers below.
SEE FOR YOURSELF!
Testing your water regularly is a great way to know what’s in it. The most
harmful contaminants in water, like bacteria and other microbes that can make you
sick, are generally the ones that can’t be seen.
In fact, you can’t see, taste, or smell many pathogens.
With this simple screening kit, though, you will be able to quickly screen for total coliform bacteria that may be present in your drinking water.
A total coliform test, like this one, is an indicator of general water quality and provides a preliminary indication of the likelihood that pathogens are in your water.
