“Water Works”, a recent program on NHPTV, discussed several different important points about our water supply and its use. Below you will find a link to a portion of the program that talks about checking your system and testing your water.
Henry DeBoer, the owner and founder of Epping Well and Pump, has been in the water industry since 1977. He is certified in many areas of the water industry in MA, ME and NH and belongs to many water industry associations. He is currently Chairman of the Water & Sewer Commission for the Town of Epping, on which he has served for 16 years.
In this clip, Henry talks about the importance of having your water quality checked (tested), and the importance of having a professional check your water system, whether it be a filter, water softener or other treatment. Often, through maintenance, bigger problems can be avoided if smaller concerns are fixed along the way. He also talks about the benefits of newer technologies and how they may save you money.
It seems natural to have an annual checkup on your furnace and to change the batteries in your smoke detectors, but it’s just as important to have a check up on your water system. Also, the NH Department of Environmental Services recommends that you have your water tested once a year for bacteria and every three to five years for other contaminants that could be affecting your water quality.
