Your well water inspection questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does it cost to test well water?

A basic well water test costs $130 to $200 and tests for the following:

  • Microbes and bacteria (including Coliform and E.Coli)
  • Minerals and metals
  • Mercury and lead
  • Chloride, Fluoride, Nitrate, Nitrite, and Sulfate

More advanced well water tests cost up to $750 and check for additional contaminants that can include Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), industrial chemicals, silica, pesticides, flame retardents, and radiological particles.

Where can I get my well water tested for free?

There are several places where you can get your well water tested for free, including:

  • Local health department – Many local health departments offer free or low-cost well water testing. Contact your local health department to see if they offer this service and what contaminants they test for.
  • State and federal government agencies – Some state and federal government agencies offer free or low-cost well water testing. For example, the EPA offers a program called Well Owner Network (WON) that provides free well water testing for certain contaminants.
  • Nonprofit organizations – Some nonprofit organizations offer free or low-cost well water testing for low-income homeowners. One example is the National Ground Water Association that offers a program called Water Well Testing for Disadvantaged Households.

How often should I get my water tested?

You should get your water tested at least once a year, or more often if you have concerns about your water's safety. If you have a private well, you are responsible for testing your own water. You can collect a sample and send it to a certified laboratory for testing or purchase a home water testing kit.

If you get your water from a public water system, the system is required to test the water regularly and provide you with a copy of the results. Contact your water utility to request a copy of the water quality report.

What are signs I need a well inspection?

A well inspection costs $250 to $550 and should be done every 1 to 2 years to ensure your drinking water is safe. However, you should not wait to have an inspection if you notice these signs:

  • A change in the smell, taste, or color of your water
  • Cloudy water
  • Changes in water pressure
  • Constant well pump cycling
  • Water that tests positive for bacteria, metals, or other potential health concerns

What questions should I ask a well water testing company?

A reputable well water testing company should be happy to answer your questions. Consider asking the following:

  • How much do you charge to test my water?
  • What contaminants will you test for?
  • How do you test the water?
  • How long will it take for you to send my results?
  • Are you certified by any state or other organization?
  • Do you offer discounts for seniors or low-income families?

How do I choose a well water testing company?

Knowing your drinking water is safe offers peace of mind. Select a well water testing company that you can trust by following these suggestions:

  • Only work with companies that have been testing water in your area for several years.
  • Ask about their testing certifications.
  • Ask what contaminants they test for and their testing methods.
  • Be sure your test includes a complete report of results mailed to you in a timely manner.
