#WellWaterTreatment System for Safe and Pure #DrinkingWater

by Mike Lestese

Commonly well water contains high amounts of dissolved minerals and therefore must be treated to make it suitable for drinking. In the event that well water is the sole method of obtaining water then the only way to determine what method of well water purification should be used is by resorting to well water testing. To begin this one has to approach an independent tester or the health department and provide the small sample of the well water gathered to execute the necessary examination.

Dependant upon the test conducted, a prognosis document is presented specifying the contaminants present within the water. System of treatment that can be adopted is determined in agreement with this report. The primary contaminants affecting the cleanliness and quality of water are the disease carrying organisms which include the bacteria and parasites. Even brushing your teeth with bacteria tainted water could affect the digestive system. Along with these, a number of supplementary contaminants similar to discoloration or odor may also be present that may not prove risky to consume but may be an inconvenience. Material or chemical contaminants, if any are present inside the well water, has to also be dealt with.

The water coming from wells is all too often "hard", in which case a softening system should also be used. Water softening systems are less costly and can be employed to reduce the levels of dissolved minerals making it healthy for drinking and cooking purposes. If, in case the well water is infected by biological contaminants, the water is normally subjected to UV light rays to get rid of the dangerous pathogens. Ultra filtration system is followed when the well water is infected by dangerous chemical contaminants. Reverse osmosis means of filtration is usually adopted when the quality of the water is very bad as it may easily affect those with fragile immune system.

Chlorination, ozone mitigation, micro filtration and acid neutralization may also prove helpful to totally eliminate harmful bacteria and other parasites making the well water entirely safe and healthy for consumption. Well water treatment method purifies the water so that it can be put to use for all necessary purposes. This treatment process is totally guaranteed to eliminate 99% of the contaminants found in it.

Well water treatment is an obvious requirement to create water safe for drinking and other purposes by extracting all sorts of contaminants and sediments. For safe, healthy drinking water for you and your family it is best to put into service an ideal purification system which eliminates all the potentially dangerous toxins and contaminants out of your well water.

Irrespective of the treatment system you adopt and no matter the method that you approach assessing your sample of well water, maintain your system per the maker's recommendations and thoroughly test your system of purification one or more times per year to be assured that the system installed best ensures safe drinking water.

Install a well water treatment system that's designed not only to find a solution to water borne issues in the present but also the potential dangers that might be experienced later in life.

Residential #WaterTreatments - Well Water Frequently Asked Questions

By Humera K

In the year 1999 - 2000, drinking contaminated water from the private well caused 26% drinking water epidemic and made people sick in the U.S alone. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) rules that protect public drinking water systems do not apply to privately owned wells. Most states have rules for private wells, but these rules may not completely protect your private well.

As a private well owner, you have to make sure that well water is safe enough for drinking. The local health authorities in your area or environmental department can help out advice you.

Check Your Well Water System

Make sure to check well every spring to monitor any mechanical problems; test it once each year for germs and once every two to three years for dangerous chemicals. You should also have your well tested if there are known problems with well water in your area, or you have experienced problems near your well i.e., flooding, land disturbances, and nearby waste dumping sites or you replace or repair any part of your well system.

To Determine Whether Well Water is Contaminated

The only way to discover, if the well water is contaminated is to test it. You can get in touch with your health department or your environmental department, or a private water testing laboratory in your area to test for germs and unsafe chemicals. It is a state rule in some areas for the drilling contractor to test a new well after it is built. On the other hand, as a private well owner, it is up to you to preserve your well and have it tested frequently.

Germs and Chemicals in Well Water

Germs and chemicals can get into your well water and contaminate it in various ways. Some germs and chemicals crop up naturally. For example, heavy metals like arsenic, lead, and cadmium are naturally found in rocks and soil and sometimes leak into ground water. Other pollutants come from human and animal waste resulting from polluted storm water runoff, agricultural runoff, flooded drains, or individual septic tank systems that are not working appropriately.

Types of Germs and Chemicals Found

Certain germs and chemicals can cause illness in drinking water and be a risk to your health. Frequent tests should be performed, which are listed as follows:

Total Coliform - Coliform bacteria are microbes found in the digestive systems of warm-blooded animals, in soil, on plants, and in surface water. If the total coliform count is high, then it is very possible that harmful germs like viruses, bacteria, and parasites might also be found in the water.

Fecal Coliform / Escherichia coli - Fecal coliform bacteria found in feces (or stool) and digestive systems of humans and warm-blooded animals contain millions of fecal coliforms. These harmful germs can cause diarrhea, dysentery, and hepatitis.

Nitrate - Nitrate are naturally found in many types of food, but high levels of nitrate in drinking water can make people sick. Nitrate in your well water can come from animal waste, private septic systems, wastewater, flooded sewers, polluted storm water runoff, fertilizers, agricultural runoff, and decaying plants. A nitrate test is recommended for all wells. If the nitrate level in your water is higher than the EPA standards, you should look for other sources of water or ways to treat your water.

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) - VOCs are industrial and fuel-related chemicals that may cause bad health effects at certain levels. Ask about testing for are benzene, carbon tetrachloride, toluene, trichloroethelene, and methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE).

pH -The pH level tells you how acidic or basic your water is. The pH level of the water can change how your water looks and tastes. If the pH of your water is too low or too high, it could damage your pipes, cause heavy metals like lead to leak out of the pipes into the water, and eventually make you sick.

Other germs or harmful chemicals
Other germs or harmful chemicals that you should test for will depend on where your well is located on your property, which state you live in, and whether you live in an urban or rural area. These tests could include testing for lead, arsenic, mercury, radium, and other pesticides.

Remember that if your test results say that there are germs or chemicals in the well water, you should contact your local health or environmental department for help and test your water more often.

What if the Well Water has Odd Smell or flavor

An alteration in your water's taste, color, or odor is often not a health concern. Still, a change could be a sign of serious contamination problems. If you notice a change in your water quality, you should have it tested.

Where to go for well water tests

Local or State health or environmental departments often test for bacteria and nitrates. Health or environmental departments, or county governments should have a list of the state-certified (licensed) laboratories in your area that test for a variety of substances.
