Bacteria in Well Water – Potability Tests – RI Living
Bacteria in Well Water – Potability Tests – RI Living.
Buying in an area that does not have a public water supply encompasses a significant geographic area of my
RI real estate business. So two of the water tests a home buyer needs to be aware of as part of
their home inspection process are:
Most home inspectors will have a water quality company test for both well water potability and radon in the water for an additional expense during home inspection. It is money well spent.
Although there is a lot of water quality information on the EPA web site for a homeowner, it is not right to the point for the consumer (not surprising one might say).
Considerable couching of terms…so I go to my home inspector for better guidance. Remember this is RI living in the smaller towns in southern RI. In fact, if you do have a well you should be testing the water at least once a year, I am told, to ensure your drinking water is drinkable water. Make sure there is no bacteria in well water at your home.
