What’s the Cost of a Well Water Test? What You Need to Know

Are you aware that the average American uses over 80 gallons of water a day at home?

Some homeowners are lucky enough to have access to a well. There are many benefits of this water source, including having cleaner and tastier water quality. However, you should test well water on a regular basis because some things can go wrong if left untreated.

Are you wondering what you need to know? Keep reading to learn all about the cost of a well water test.

The General Cost

When it comes to well water test kits, it’s important to know that the prices can vary based on a range of factors. For instance, the brand name of the kit, the accuracy of the test, and the depth of the well can all contribute to the price.

The cheapest kits can cost as little as $150 or less. The most extensive and high-quality tests can end up costing you as much as $2,000, depending on the type.

The phrase “you get what you pay for” certainly applies to well water test kits. It’s might be tempting to save money by getting one of the cheapest kits out there, but that could end up backfiring because the results might be far from accurate.

Why It’s Worth the Money

Are you wondering why it’s important to test your water in the first place? It’s crucial to test the water at least once a year because it’s possible for dangerous chemicals and bacteria to get into your water supply. Nitrates, dissolvable metals, and pH levels are other possibilities that can put your family’s health in jeopardy.

Keep in mind that the test is only accurate if it’s performed correctly. You could literally throw your money down the drain if you don’t follow the test instructions to the letter. This is why it’s often a good idea to seek out a professional who has years of experience.

There are some instances in which you’re obligated to test and treat well water. For example, if you have a USDA or FHA loan. The last thing you’d want to do is break a contract and deal with the fallout of the consequences.

A certified well tester can ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
