Water Quality Testing CT: Radon in Water Often Goes Untested: One element that often goes untested is in CT Water is Radon. While many buyers are test radon in the air they usually are unaware of testing for radon in the water quality. Many Real Estate agents fail to recommend that their buyers test for radon in the water as well.
This is something you specifically need to ask to screen for as it generally is not provided in a standard test. There are a couple things that should be noted about radon in the water. There is no national EPA mandated passing level for radon in water quality. It varies from state to state.
In Connecticut the passing level is considered to be under 5,000 pCi/L. We have had radon in water tests in the state come back as high as 125,000 pCI/L. Unfortunately the only way to know for sure if you well water contains a high level of radon is to test for it. Read the rest of this entry »

Water Quality Testing CT: Buying a House with Well Water? If you’re considering the purchase of a house for sale whether the property is listed by a Realtor or is a “For Sale By Owner” and the water supply is pumped from a private water well then my best home buying advice is to have the water quality professionally tested by an unbiased party that represents you (NOT, the realtor, NOT the home inspector, NOT the other party, but YOU)

Water Quality Testing CT: Spring time is a Great time to Test Your Water Quality. The coming of spring is especially critical for individuals who rely on well water or a private well for their drinking water supply. Groundwater originates as precipitation, melting snow and spring rains generally provide the largest contribution of groundwater recharge to our aquifers each year.
Because recharge during this time can occur rapidly, bacterial contamination of wells is more likely to occur during this time of year. Some well owners may actually notice their well water change appearance or odor after large rain events or snowmelts.
Coliform bacteria tests are an easy way to determine whether your water supply is bacteriologically safe to drink. Coliform bacteria are common in soils and are not generally considered harmful to health, however; they are also found in human and animal waste. For this reason a coliform bacteria test is used as an indication of the sanitary condition of water quality.
A sanitary water quality or properly constructed well should not contain any coliform bacteria; the presence of bacteria in well water indicates a pathway for potentially dangerous pathogens such as E. coli, a type of fecal coliform, to enter the water supply. If harmful bacteria or viruses are in fact present, a variety of illnesses could occur from drinking the water. Read the rest of this entry »
