Well Water Analysis
Well water analysis is an important part of homeowner maintenance and health, since many homeowners in Southwest Florida receive their water from private ground water wells. EPA regulations that protect public drinking and bathing water systems do not apply to privately owned water wells. As a result, owners of private water wells are responsible for ensuring that their own well water remains disease free.
The CDC, Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends at a minimum, to check your well every spring to make sure there are no mechanical problems- and to test water quality once each year for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and lead content.
