Frequently Asked Questions

What are signs that my business’s water needs testing?

You should always schedule water quality testing when buying new property with well water, especially if it’s a commercial building constructed before 1986, as it might have lead plumbing and fixtures that can leach into tap water.

If you already own your commercial property and notice any of the following issues, it’s time to schedule professional water testing:

  • Odd-colored, -smelling, or -tasting water, indicating contaminants
  • Stains in sinks and around fixtures, indicating iron or other mineral contamination
  • A recent contamination outbreak in your area

How often should my business’s water be tested?

Experts recommend performing comprehensive commercial water quality tests annually for total coliform bacteria.

In addition to these standard tests, local water quality experts can help you get started with tests for common contaminants in your area if you suspect water quality issues.

Schedule testing as needed if:

  • There’s been flooding or issues with waste disposal sites near your business.
  • You’ve recently repaired or replaced part of your well system.
  • You notice a change in the water’s odor, color, clarity, or taste.

Who should test my water?

Regularly testing your business’s water supply is essential to maintaining its safety and reliability. Choose a water treatment and filtration company that provides MDE compliance testing and reporting services from state-certified staff.

Water Doctor will show up on time to provide water testing services that ensure drinking water safety for your employees, customers, clients, and/or tenants through certified lab testing.

Where does water contamination come from?

Natural sources of water contamination and contaminants caused by humans can affect your water quality and the health of those who use and consume it. Common sources include:

  • Microorganisms like bacteria, parasites, and viruses
  • Nitrate and nitrite present in human sewage, chemical fertilizers, and animal waste
  • Heavy metals, such as arsenic, lead, and many more
  • Organic chemicals found in dyes, pesticides, inks, paints, solvents, petroleum products, and disinfectants
  • Radionuclides, including radium

What should I do if my water is contaminated?

Once contamination has been confirmed with testing, you can install a commercial water treatment solution to ensure your well water’s safety and drinkability.

Your options include:

  • Water softening solutions
  • Acidic water treatment
  • Sulfur/odorous water treatment
