Public water testing

If you are purchasing water from a public water system (aka paying a water bill) then you enjoy the benefit of having your water already monitored. The water company is required to report results of water tests to ensure they meet the National Primary Drinking Water Standards and must also notify you if any contaminants are found.

However, while this additional protection is nice, it is no guarantee that your water is safe. Problems can be missed, information can be delayed, or problems could emerge closer to your home. That's why we recommend you still have your tap water tested.

Private water supply testing

If you have a private water supply like a well then you are the only one ensuring that your drinking water is safe. This makes routine testing for common contaminants a must. In fact, there is another benefit to testing your water supply. Testing a private water supply helps to establish a record of water quality to solve future problems or obtain compensation if your water supply is damaged by someone else.
