Water contaminants are present in many homes. 65% of New Jersey is serviced by private wells, and the water quality should be tested on a regular basis to monitor any changes in chemistry. An estimated 20-40% of wells fail bacteria testing. Some indicators of nuisance issues are white spots on clean dishes, unwanted color or odor to the water, erosion of appliances and plumbing, and dry or brittle skin, hair, and nails. Other potentially harmful contaminants, such as Coliform bacteria, can upset the stomach and make you sick.

According to the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), private well owners should test their water regularly for bacteria. The U.S. E.P.A. recommends testing your private well every year for bacteria, nitrates, and pH. If you suspect any other contaminants or there are known contaminants in your area, you should test for those as well. Clean water is something we often take for granted. In truth, the water we use to drink and bathe can contain a number of unseen contaminants. Even from city water
sources, which have to follow mandatory quality standards, water must flow through miles of piping and can pick up dirt, chemicals, and bacteria on its way to your home.
