What Kind of Tests are Performed to Test Water Purity

We take clean water coming from our taps for granted. However, there are plenty of times when it can be a good idea to have it tested. Testing your water supply is a good idea even if your water comes from a private, single household well. There are several reasons why it may be contaminated. Agricultural runoff, industrial leakages, and even household chemical use can all leach into the ground water to contaminate a well. Shallow wells are also more easily contaminated than deeper ones. Apart from chemicals, gastrointestinal tract disease causing bacteria like E. coli can also breed in water supply and storage systems after they are carried into them by rain or melting snow from sources like nearby septic systems, manure storage or spreading, feedlots. 

In fact, Health Canada recommends sampling your well water: 

  • In early spring just after the thaw 
  • in the fall rainy season 
  • after a long dry spell or drought 
  • after heavy rains, floods 
  • after the well has not been used for a long period of time 

In the realm of water treatment and pump systems, ensuring water quality is paramount not only for good health, but also for the longevity and efficiency of equipment. Water testing emerges as a crucial step in this process, providing valuable insights into the composition and characteristics of the water being treated.
