Unfiltered well water (also known as groundwater) can harbour many different harmful bacteria such as E.coli as well as contaminants like manganese, iron and arsenic, some of which can pose a health risk.
A well water treatment system is specifically designed to properly maintain the pH levels of your water as well as add chlorine to kill harmful bacteria.
Due to the water being contaminated, unfiltered well water can cause issues throughout your home, this includes mineral buildup in pipes and appliances, as well as an unpleasant taste, small appearance to your water. Even if you have a private reserve of water it is imperative that you take responsibility for keeping it safe to use.
For your in-home water test, contact an EHS Water Dealer; same-day appointments are available for your convenience.
Canada’s Government Website reminds Private Well Water Owners of its well owners’ responsibility to ensure the quality of their well water.
