Water Testing in New Hampshire

At Epping Well & Pump Co., we’ve analyzed water from thousands of wells around New Hampshire. We’re familiar with the water quality issues that arise from old plumbing, irrigation, hard water, runoff, and other factors. 

Our technicians will test your water and recommend the best solutions for your needs.

How often should I test my drinking water?

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services recommends homeowners with private wells get their well water tested for bacteria annually. 

In addition, they should test for other standard contaminants of concern every three to five years.

Radon Water Testing

Radon in water and air is a specific concern in New Hampshire drinking water.

Radon is a radioactive gas that occurs naturally and is often found in bedrock and in water from drilled wells in New Hampshire. Radon gas is odorless, has no color, and is tasteless too.

If radon in the air in your home is high, it’s important to know what amount of it is coming from your water versus coming in through your foundation.

Radon gas gets released into the air from your water through your water usage for showers, dish washers, laundry, etc.

The only way to determine if you have Radon in your drinking water is through proper testing. 

 The Epping Well & Pump team can help you with this!

It is very simple to take your water sample.  Sampling instructions can be seen here on this simple “How to collect a water sample” form.  

Some are really hard to read but ours is simple with a column for what the “normal” result looks like and what your result is, then has columns with “X”s on anything that doesn’t meet federal guidelines. 

At the bottom, it will say your water meets or does not meet federal drinking water guidelines.

Once you have your water quality test results, Epping Well can work with you for a customized water treatment solution for your contaminant concerns.  The safety of your drinking water is important to us.  We look forward to serving all your water needs from testing to treatment to taking care of your well and pump.

“It’s always nice to deal with nice people. Mark, the service manager, helped connect me (on very short notice) with a filter part we’d broken. Thank you … I hope you will reach out to them when you need a well pump, drinking water testing, water treatment or irrigation systems. A+”
