We continuously talk to Columbia residents who want to have their drinking water tested. Since we offer a variety of testing services, we are often asked to help people determine exactly what water tests will best meet their needs. Consider these questions when determining what type of tests you should do on your Columbia CT home.
Is the testing needed to meet federal or state regulations for a real estate transaction? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you will need certified test result.
Does your drinking water come from a private well or does it come from a city source? The source of your water matters tremendously. If you have a private well in Columbia, you are responsible for making sure it is safe for consumption. If you are on a city water supply, your municipal water supplier is responsible for evaluation in accordance with USEPA Safe Drinking Water Act.
Keep in mind, however, they test from their treatment facility, not your home, so the water in your home could be contaminated with things that the water has come in contact with on the way to your home.
The water potability test is an affordable option which checks the basic chemical, physical and bacterial components of the water. This is a good option to consider because it tests for E. Coli and Coliform bacteria, which should be tested at least annually if you have a private well. This test provides an accurate analysis, which is also useful when determining water treatment needs.
Numerous methods exist for the analysis of drinking water. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved analytical methods, are detailed procedures written by the EPA covering all aspects of the test from collection of samples to the preparation of the final report. If the samples are mis-handled your water testing results will be compromised.
