Over 60% of the Human Body is made of Water.  Having your water tested, and installing a proper filtration system when necessary, will not only save you money it will affect your health in a positive way.

More than likely your well water is less contaminated than bottled water.  The FDA currently regulates the bottled water industry.  The lack of regulation in comparison to the high cost of bottled water is alarming to say the least.  Below are just a few independent studies and articles on JUST HOW UNSAFE BOTTLED WATER ACTUALLY IS.

Bottled water contains disinfection byproducts, fertilizer residue, and pain medication... Read More

Loopholes in the FDA’s testing policy do not require the same standards for water that is bottled and sold in the same state, meaning that a significant number of bottles have undergone almost no regulation or testing. Read More

Doctor Oz Show Reveals Contaminants In
Tap & Bottled Waters
The shocking results from Dr. Oz’s recent special investigation of drinking waters were revealed. Arsenic, lead, known carcinogen chromium 6, and perchlorate – or rocket fuel – are among the contaminants you are being exposed to every day in the drinking water. Read More

The so-called Free Water Test.  We try to keep our water testing fees as low as possible to make them affordable to everyone.  However, the business practice of offering free water testing and then sending a salesman out to sell you an overpriced and often unnecessary filtration or softener system is not something we believe in.  All water testing is done at an independent laboratory in NEPA.  We charge a minimal fee for collection services in addition to the lab fee.
Once the water testing is complete and we receive the results, we can tailor a system to suit your water problem.  Some of the common contaminants include Bacteria, Nitrates, Lead, Radon, Iron, Manganese and Radium.

Bacteria - Fecal and Coliform
Bacteria can enter a well through a cracked or non-sealed well cap; crack in well casing; shallow wells; and leaks in underground plumbing. Bacteria will continue to grow if left untreated. The first step is generally to chlorinate the well in an attempt to eliminate bacteria. If all efforts have been exhausted to correct the problem at the source (well), and bacteria is still present, we can install an Ultraviolet Light or a permanent Chlorination System.

Nitrates in Water
Nitrates are considered harmful to infants and expectant mothers as it is believed to be a cause of "blue baby syndrome". A temporary blood disorder, which is reversible once the contaminating source is removed. Older children and adults are able to reject the effects of nitrate nitrogen in their blood and rarely have problems except at extremely high nitrate levels. The most popular treatment for Nitrates in drinking water is Reverse Osmosis. This is a high performance system which eliminates many contaminants from water.

Lead may leach from lead solder in plumbing or service lines and brass/copper alloys used in some well pumps. In well water, the major contributor to this leaching is acidic water. Acidic water will corrode copper pipes, appliances, and plumbing fixtures and may leach lead if it is present in the plumbing. The solution for this is an Acid Neutralizer.

Radon is a colorless, odorless, short-lived radioactive gas commonly found in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.  It is which is released in the process of uranium rock decay. This gas is considered carcinogenic when inhaled. Radon in water is emitted to air, especially where water is agitated or sprayed.

Radium is a radioactive metal that occurs naturally in rocks, soil and ground water. As radium decays, it continually releases energy into the environment. Radium readily dissolves in acidic ground water. Treatments for Radium are Reverse Osmosis and Water Softener Systems.

Objectionable Taste and Odor
Metallic tastes are common and can be attributed to acidic water conditions or iron.  Although iron and manganese are not considered a health hazard, they can cause taste, staining, and odor problems. Iron and Manganese Filters not only filter iron and manganese to provide crystal clear water. They also filter hydrogen sulfide gas which produces an offensive rotten egg odor.
Viruses - Cryptosporidium, Giardia
These microbes are parasites often called cysts. Reverse Osmosis Systems offer reduction of these microbes. Ceramic Candles Filters remove 99.99% of pathogenic bacteria and cysts, and inhibit microbiological growth, and can be cleaned and reused for greater filter life

The process of gas well drilling has the potential to negatively impact drinking water sources. A single gas well can utilize and produce hundreds of thousands of gallons of fluids during drilling operations. The recent discoveries of gas reserves held within the Marcellus Shale formation and the use of new horizontal drilling methods to tap these reserves are expected to increase dramatically the drilling operations and gas recovery efforts in the region.

Pre-gas well testing of private wells and springs is a necessary step to establish a baseline for the water quality of the water source. Subsequent well testing may be performed during or after the operations to verify that the water source is unimpacted by the drilling operations.

Well 911 can collect and analyze drinking and surface waters to characterize the condition
of a water supply prior to gas well drilling, thus establishing a baseline of water quality.
