Do you know what’s in your Well Water?Well water safety – If you are on well water there are some important safety concerns. Well water is not treated. Untreated well water can easily become contaminated. The problem is you won’t know it. We always advise people who use well water to regularly have their water checked for safety. Wells are susceptible to bacteriological contamination* and rural wells can have high levels of nitrates* and arsenic*. These tests are usually done in water testing facilities run by cities and counties. If you need help ask your Culligan Man, your local water expert, for assistance. They can provide access to testing services.
Well water quality – One of the myths about “well water” is that it is better than city tap water. The fact is wells vary dramatically in quality. Some wells are “sweet” and taste good. Other wells are so “gypy” that cattle won’t drink it. The most common problem with virtually all well water in West Texas is that it is HARD. Hard water can cause a lot of problems from spots to clogging pipes. Water softeners are the most effective method of removing hardness from your well water. If you are concerned about the quality of your well water … have it tested. Contact your local Culligan Man and let him have your water analyzed.
* these contaminants may or may not be in your water but we recommend you have your water tested.
