You need to make sure that your home meets all the safety requirements required by law. Many areas need to be kept maintained and looked after to ensure that your home is a safe place to live on an ongoing basis. One area that needs special attention is the condition of the drinking water running through the pipes in your home.

Having your water tested is essential in maintaining good health for you and your family. Whether your water is sourced from a private well or a water storage tank located in your home it is vitally important that you get it checked and tested. The reason that you need your water tested is to make sure that it is safe for both you and your family to drink.

You could be in tiptop shape and feeling absolutely fine, but that does not mean the water you are consuming is free from contaminants. Some of the bacteria found in drinking water can take a toll over a number of years, and do lead to long-term health issues.

So it is imperative even of you are feeling well to regularly get your water source checked and treated for any issues are found.

Even if your neighbour has had there well tested and it has been given the all clear this does not automatically clear your water source and make it alright to drink. The water in your well will change, it will change for a number of reasons; for example, heavy rain and the different seasons all playing a part in the process.

Once your water testing is carried out, and if it shows contamination, you must stop using the water immediately. The source of the contamination must be found corrected and treated, and then given the all clear before you can even think about drinking or using it again.

A water well test can be included as part of a home inspection service, you need to know that the water you are drinking and brushing your teeth with is safe and free from any harmful bacteria.
