Water Testing NY: Radon in Water Often Goes Untested: One element that often goes untested is in NY Water is Radon. While many buyers are test radon in the air they usually are unaware of testing for radon in the water. Many Real Estate agents fail to recommend that their buyers test for radon in the water as well.
This is something you specifically need to ask to screen for as it generally is not provided in a standard test. There are a couple things that should be noted about radon in the water. There is no national EPA mandated passing level for radon in the water. It varies from state to state. Unfortunately the only way to know for sure if you well water contains a high level of radon is to test for it. Read the rest of this entry »

Water Testing NY: Buying a House with Well Water? If you’re considering the purchase of a house for sale in NY, whether the property is listed by a Realtor or is a “For Sale By Owner” and the water supply is pumped from a private water well then my best home buying advice is to have the water professionally tested by an unbiased party that represents you (NOT, the realtor, NOT the home inspector, NOT the other party, but YOU)
This one property purchase tip may save you thousands of dollars and an awful lot of trouble down the road! Far to often I’ve been contacted by new homeowners, many who have unknowingly inherited water well problems with the purchase of their new home, many owners simply would not have purchased their property had this known these problems existed prior to their purchase.

Water Testing NY: Spring time is a Great time to Test Your Water. The coming of spring is especially critical for individuals who rely on well water or a private well for their drinking water supply. Groundwater originates as precipitation, melting snow and spring rains generally provide the largest contribution of groundwater recharge to our aquifers each year.
Because recharge during this time can occur rapidly, bacterial contamination of wells is more likely to occur during this time of year. Some well owners may actually notice their well water change appearance or odor after large rain events or snowmelts.
Coliform bacteria tests are an easy way to determine whether your NY water supply is bacteriologically safe to drink. Coliform bacteria are common in soils and are not generally considered harmful to health, however; they are also found in human and animal waste. For this reason a coliform bacteria test is used as an indication of the sanitary condition of a water supply.
A sanitary water supply or properly constructed well should not contain any coliform bacteria; the presence of bacteria in well water indicates a pathway for potentially dangerous pathogens such as E. coli, a type of fecal coliform, to enter the water supply. If harmful bacteria or viruses are in fact present, a variety of illnesses could occur from drinking the water. Read the rest of this entry »

Water Testing NY: Ensure Fresh Clean Drinking Water From Your Private Well. Your water test may have revealed that your water was ideal to drink when you purchased your NY home so you felt safe after you moved in. An advantage to well water is you’ll enjoy fresh, clean water, unconnected to the issues, hassles and potential additives of municipals supplies.
But to keep it that way you need to test annually, and be sure that activities on or surrounding your groundwater don’t turn your clean water into contaminated water. The EPA recommends: Read the rest of this entry »

Water Testing NY: NY well owners whose wells were covered with water in the wake of Hurricane Sandy need to sanitize their well before using the water for drinking or washing.
