Checking your Well Drinking Water

*Although I received compensation for this post all opinions are 100% mine

Sometimes people think, "If I have well water, my water is going to naturally be clean and I don't need a water filter." This is not necessarily the case. Well water should be tested at least once every year by an approved agency. They need to check for any possible contaminants, like bacteria or lead, as well as chemicals found in pesticides, insecticides, and herbicides.
Sanitizing your water system annually with bleach can also be a useful way to keep out unpleasant extras. If at any point you run into any unusual problems with your water, such as discolored water or blue staining, you may need a full water treatment system to treat your water as it comes into your home. Sometimes, with well water, these things seep into the ground and into your water.
 If inspectors do find high levels of chemicals, it is not advised that you drink the water. Depending on the type of chemicals, the water in your toilet, shower, and sinks may be fine to use, but drinking the contaminated water will make you sick. If that is the case, you will really only need to transform your drinking water.
 You may not need a full water system overhaul. The solution, then, is much cheaper. You can just pick up a frigidaire puresource water filter at A fridge water filter will clean up your tap water, making it safe to drink, and it is much less expensive than redoing your entire water system to soften or filter the water.
