Home water testing
If you get your drinking water from a well, then it is imperative that you have your water routinely tested by qualified professionals. There are many things that can factor into your home water quality not being fresh or clean. For example, in nature, all water contains impurities, so naturally the water that travels into your well will not be suitable for consumption. As a result, home water testing helps professional water technicians understand your water quality and the individual issues with your water supply.
Home water testing
Determines your water quality
Contaminated water can be a threat to anyone's health, and especially to young children. Therefore, many homeowners rely on water tests to understand the particular elements of their water. Not every home water supply is the same. At Aqua Pump, we rely on individual water testing to determine the best course of action for your water consumption!

Common issues with well water
Iron - As rainwater infiltrates the soil and underlying geologic formations, it dissolves iron, causing it to seep into aquifers that serve as sources of groundwater for wells. Although present in drinking water, iron is seldom found at concentrations greater than 10 milligrams per liter (mg/L) or 10 parts per million.
Hard water - Hard water is water that has high mineral content (in contrast with "soft water"). Hard water is formed when water percolates through deposits of limestone and chalk which are largely made up of calcium and magnesium carbonates.
Soft water - Soft water is surface water that contains low concentrations of ions and in particular is low in ions of calcium and magnesium. Soft water naturally occurs where rainfall and the drainage basin of rivers are formed of hard, impervious and calcium poor rocks.
Low or high pH (acidic/basic) - pH is a measure of how acidic/basic water is. The range goes from 0 - 14, with 7 being neutral. pHs of less than 7 indicate acidity, whereas a pH of greater than 7 indicates a base. pH is really a measure of the relative amount of free hydrogen and hydroxyl ions in the water.
Arsenic - A primary source of arsenic in drinking water wells is from the water flowing through arsenic-rich rocks and soil. It can be further released into the environment through natural activities such as volcanic action and forest fires, as well as through human actions.
Manganese - Manganese is a mineral that naturally occurs in rocks and soil and is a normal constituent of the human diet. It exists in well water in CT as a naturally occurring groundwater mineral, but may also be present due to underground pollution sources.
Uranium - Uranium occurs naturally in bedrock and groundwater; therefore wells are susceptible to contamination. The amount of uranium in bedrock and well water will vary greatly from place to place.
