SEBASTOPOL – Host, Sarah Rutan: If your water is supplied by a well, there are some health and safety issues you’ll need to know about. Today we’re with Diamond Certified Expert Contributor Brandon Varner of Weeks Drilling & Pump Company to learn more.

Diamond Certified Expert Contributor, Brandon Varner: Over the years, we have received a very common question from many of our clients who are on well water. How do I know my water is safe? Well, I always respond to their question with another question: Has your water ever been tested?

It’s not possible to know what you might find in your water if you have never had it properly analyzed. We recommend at a minimum that you have your water tested for nitrate, arsenic and coliform bacteria as these are the most common contaminants health concern that we find.

There are other contaminants we see less commonly but much depends on where your well is located and what threats to water quality exist. Contact a certified water specialist who can test your water for basic minerals such as hardness, iron and manganese. For other tests, send your water to a trusted laboratory. It is important to get educated and learn about the health effects of contaminants that may be present in your well water.

If you would like to learn more about the procedures or getting your water properly diagnosed, contact your local water treatment specialist.

Host, Sarah Rutan: Thank you to our Diamond Certified Expert Contributor Brandon Varner of Weeks Drilling & Pump Company. I’m Sarah Rutan.
