Arsenic: You can't taste it or smell it, but depending on your location, you could be in a "hot spot" where it exists more than surrounding areas. While we always remind people to understand their surrounding areas when purchasing or building a home, arsenic has the ability to be more prevelant in certain areas, making it a must test for hazard in your water.
Arsenic is a semi-metal element on the periodic table.
How does arsenic get into water? As the EPA states, "Because it occurs naturally in the environment and as a by-product of some agricultural and industrial activities, it can enter drinking water through the ground or as runoff into surface water sources."
As we always mention, municipal water is tested however, private water wells (such as the one in your home) is up to you to schedule routine testing. Many people often forget this and because there are many possible hazards such as arsenic that are odorless and tasteless, it is crucial that CT homeowners test annually.
Arsenic is known for having hot-spots in locations that don't typically have high arsenic readings. Here at Aqua Pump, we strongly suggest getting your water tested for possible silent hazards such as arsenic and other contaminants.

In recent days, roughly 42 water tested wells have come up positive for Uranium. The additional testing had been issues after Uranium and Arsenic had been tested positive in other communities. At this time, the other communities have not been specified, this is just one more alarming reason why homeowners should have their well water tested annually.
As NBC Connecticut states "Residents with wells that test positive for uranium at levels above the accepted norm are urged to stop drinking and cooking with the water until it can be treated. According to city health officials, residents can use a filtration system. A reverse osmosis system or an ion-exchange system are recommended by the officials."
The health risks from Uranium and Arsenic can be serious and long-term, meaning, the side effects don't always arise early on.
Regardless of taste of water, residents are responsible for testing and are urged to test once a year. Aqua Pump has been a leader in water testing throughout Connecticut and you can contact us to schedule a water test as well as answering your questions and concerns.
