Well Water

Treating Contaminated Well Water

Treatment can range from simply disinfecting your well to an installation of a large treatment system. There are many aspects to consider when purchasing water treatment equipment; therefore, careful research should be done before a decision is made. Knowing exactly what needs to be treated is the first step. Then, compare the different options to determine what works best for you. It is important to understand all of the costs, including maintenance, that may be involved. Also, knowing how to recognize if your unit is not working properly is important. For more information on water treatment, visit NSF’s web page on Drinking Water.
