Water Quality

Wisconsin families rely on a residential well for their drinking water. They need to be assured that the water they are drinking is safe for consumption. After the initial construction of the well, Sam’s will test your water to ensure it is free from bacteria and that the nitrate level of the water is within recommended limits. While initial assurance is important, of equal importance is periodically retesting the well water to make certain of its safety. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources recommends that the water be tested annually to ensure its safety. As part of Sam’s commitment to providing Safe Water to Wisconsin families an in-house Water Testing Lab is an integral part of Sam’s service offering. The water sampling lab is a separate division, SWD Labs, and prides itself on friendly service with a quick turnaround. To request a water sampling kit, please call (800) 321-5193.

Bacteria Testing

For a minimal charge, SWD Labs can test your water to ensure that it is free of bacteria. If the test results reveal that there is bacteria in your water, Sam’s Well Drilling can arrange to chlorinate your well to kill any bacteria that may be present.

Nitrate Testing

SWD Labs will test for Nitrates in your water. Nitrate testing ensures that your water is safe for young children or pregnant women to drink. If your Nitrate level is high, there are systems that can be added to your home to reduce the Nitrate level in the water.
