Total Source Water Filtration Systems Information 

Approximately 23 million people in the U.S. use private wells, many without water filtration systems . Most wells tap an underground aquifer.  Although the aquifer appears protected from sources of contamination, it can become polluted from industrial spills, underground fuel tank leaks, fertilizer, or wastes that seep into the ground. Ground sources can migrate several miles, which means your well may be contaminated by an industrial facility or farm miles "up gradient" from your home. Also consider contaminants from local lake water.  Wells are also susceptible to sediment contamination, so the water in your home may appear discolored or "dirty."   Even public treatment plants are not 100% effective.

For this reason, you should have your well tested annually. To have it tested, call a local analysis laboratory. Lists of laboratories certified by your state or EPA may be available from your state or local health department. Some local health departments also test private wells for free.

Tests for contaminants such as nitrate and Coliform bacteria performed by a private laboratory usually cost between $10 and $20. Cost increases if you ask the laboratory to test for other contaminants. Once the laboratory performs the tests, it will mail you the results. You can compare the results to EPA's National Primary Drinking Standards and National Secondary Drinking Standards to find out if your source falls below levels EPA thinks are safe for certain contaminants.

A note of caution: a test will only tell you what is in the source that day. Public treatment plant failures can occur intermittently, and pollutants can be present in what comes out of your tap after these failures or after other events (e.g., after farm fertilizing periods, heavy rains, or season changes).

People who use public sources are not immune from problems either.   Everyone should consider filtering what comes into your home.

Because of the productís limited service life and to prevent costly repairs or possible water damage, we strongly recommend that the bottom of all plastic housings be replaced every ten years. If the bottom of your housing has been in use for longer than this period, it should be replaced immediately. Date the bottom of any new or replacement housing to indicate the next recommended replacement date.
