The best way to be sure if your water is safe is to have it tested. Nitrates, chlorine and coliform testing are simple analysis that can tell you right away whether your water is safe to drink or not. Also, check out the Domestic Water Testing Package – W3. This package is very popular with private well owners and household consumers who have concerns about their drinking water.
