Do you know where the water in your home comes from? If you have your own private well, you might feel like you have great control over the water quality that you receive, but do you really know how good the water is? The only way to know for certain is by having the water sent to a lab for testing. While there are some “Do it yourself” kits that will allow you to test the water for certain contaminants, they are not a good alternative compared to a professional test. And even if you have tested your water in the past, this does not guarantee that it will stay clean. You should make sure that no vehicles are parked over the area where the well is located, since they could leak oil or coolant onto the ground which in turn could seep into the well. You also need to be careful not to spill any chemicals on the ground in that area.
