Culligan well water tests

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) rules that protect public drinking water systems do not apply to privately owned wells. As a well owner, it’s up to you to make sure that your water is safe to drink.
Collecting a well water sample for testing isn’t as easy as turning on the tap. Well owners frequently get false positive results because they do not properly collect the sample or get it to the laboratory in the time frame required for an accurate test. Contact your local Culligan Water experts for accurate sampling and comprehensive water testing from an EPA-certified lab.

When should you get your well water tested?

The EPA recommends all private wells be tested annually for coliform bacteria, nitrates and arsenic. Every 2 - 3 years they recommend testing for tannins, hardness, chloride, sulfate, alkalinity, iron and copper. Spring is the best time to test your well due to higher rainfall, which percolates through the soil into your well.
