Top 6 Well Water Safety Needs

A lot of harmful drinking water contaminants are virtually undetectable without lab testing. That’s why you shouldn’t wait to get an appropriate well water filtration system. The sooner you have the right treatment solutions in place, the better.

1. Iron Treatment

The primary goal for most water filter replacement issues is to make sure the iron levels are under control. Otherwise, homeowners are likely going to struggle with rust stains on their water fixtures, dingy laundry from dirty water, sediment buildup in their plumbing, dry and itchy skin from showering in iron-rich water, and in some cases, even orange water coming from the faucet.

If your family uses well water and you’ve been noticing any of these problems, you’re probably past due on the recommendations for how often water should be tested. Please don’t hesitate to give Idaho Water Solutions a call for your free water analysis.

2. Sulfur Treatment

A lot of times iron treatment and sulfur treatment go together. The problems tend to show up hand-in-hand, so you can normally tackle these issues with one type of filter. It’s a good idea to add sulfur treatment to your water filtration system whenever you’re noticing a “rotten egg” smell at the faucet or in the shower.

3. Uranium Treatment

While uranium occurs naturally in the world, it’s not something that we want in our family’s water. Drinking water that contains uranium can have toxic effects on the kidneys and even increase an person’s risk of cancer.

If your private well is located near rocks and soil that have uranium, those minerals might be able to leach into your water supply. Luckily, there are powerful filtration options available that can remove uranium and help keep your family safe.

4. Arsenic Treatment

Some homeowners will even have arsenic show up on their water quality analysis report. This can be unexpected and alarming, but it doesn’t mean you have to avoid well water altogether. Your family just needs to have a better filtration system in place. Arsenic can enter your water supply in the same way as uranium. Once you get the right filter replacement schedule in order, you shouldn’t have to worry about this contaminant either.

5. Nitrate Treatment

It’s not uncommon for low levels of nitrates to show up in a drinking water analysis. Nevertheless, homeowners need to be on guard and make sure those numbers don’t start to climb. Having nitrates in your drinking water can be incredibly dangerous for infants and young children. Once nitrate is ingested, it becomes what’s known as nitrite. This toxin can interfere with the bloodstream’s ability to carry oxygen throughout the body. This can eventually develop into a horrible condition known as “blue baby syndrome.” Proper water filtration will help lower those risks down to zero.

6. Water Bacteria Treatment

Our team very rarely comes across bacterial problems. But when we do, it’s crucial to take care of the situation as quickly as possible. Drinking water that’s contaminated with bacteria or other microorganisms can be extremely harmful and lead to some serious gastrointestinal illnesses. Fortunately, there’s a relatively simple fix.

We prefer to solve water bacteria treatment issues with ultraviolet systems. UV water filters are great because they don’t require any chemicals to get rid of the microorganisms. It all happens under a special light. Your water just flows through the filter and continues on into your house. Then you’ll get fresh, filtered water at the tap and can help keep your family safe.

How Often Should Well Water Be Tested?

The general consensus is that private wells should be checked annually. Some homeowners decide to reach out to their water treatment professionals in the spring to run the necessary tests for drinking water bacteria, dangerous nitrates, and other dissolved solids. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your last test, please don’t delay any longer.

Stick to a regular schedule that works for you. Then it will be easier to remember to follow through on how often the water should be tested. If you tend to have a packed calendar in the springtime, just make plans to have your filter replacement done in the fall. There’s a certain level of flexibility. The most important thing is to stay consistent.

When to Get a Filter Replacement

Well water filter systems need to be properly maintained just like any piece of equipment or home appliance. It’s really not that different from getting your heating and cooling systems tuned up or having the oil changed in your car. That’s why homeowners need to get on a regular schedule to make sure their water quality isn’t compromised.

Your water filter replacement will usually need to happen as often as 8 weeks, or up to 6 months at most. These recommendations mostly depend on your water usage, yet the contaminant risks for your property can impact the timeline too. This timeline varies from family to family. And commercial properties will usually need to review their water filter replacement routine even more frequently.

When managed correctly, well water can be delicious, safe, and affordable to maintain. You just need to get on the right schedule to address how often water should be tested. Then it’s all about following through on your water filter replacement.
