Well water testing tips
If you have well water, you’re not alone. More than 15 million US homes depend on well water. Although we have one of the safest drinking water supplies in the world, well water can still become contaminated with naturally occurring chemicals and minerals (for example, arsenic, radon), local land use practices (for example, use of pesticides, chemicals, etc.), and malfunctioning wastewater treatment systems, flooding and more.
If polluted ground water is consumed, it could cause illness. It is important that private ground water wells are checked regularly to ensure that the well water is safe for drinking. In addition, well water chemicals can inadvertently cause hair to turn orange, red, even green. Many of our clients come to us to correct well water issues at home and at work. We offer many products for well water treatment systems, and for many different issues.

WELL WATER TESTING TIPS
Many consumers assume that if their water looks, tastes, and smells okay that it's safe to drink. Unfortunately, few contaminants can actually be detected by our senses, so water testing may be needed.
Contaminants can include:
- Microbiological Contaminants: refers to the non-intended or accidental introduction of infectious material like bacteria, yeast, mold, fungi, virus, prions, protozoa or their toxins and by-products. Most health departments require a total coliform bacteria test to determine if bacteria is present in a well when it is first put into service or when the property changes ownership. Two additional forms of potential microbiological contamination include parasites and viruses, although these are most frequently found in surface water supplies.
- Inorganic Contaminants This category includes metals and minerals that can affect either the safety or taste of well water. They can be naturally occurring or may result from manmade contamination.
Some common inorganic contaminants found in well water include:
- Nitrates/Nitrites (fertilizers, onsite septic systems)
- Arsenic (naturally occurring/manmade contamination)
- Sodium (naturally occurring/some treatment systems) Chemicals can also leach into well water supplies from the application of pesticides, runoff from agricultural and industrial operations, or from gasoline storage tanks.
- Volatile Organic Chemicals or VOCs (pesticides, etc.)
- MTBE (gasoline additive) Radiological The fourth type of contaminant sometime found in private wells would be radiological in nature, such as:
- Radon (gas; also can be found in indoor air)
- Radium 226/228 (from decaying uranium deposits)
To determine if any of these contaminants are present in your well water supply, you may want to have your water tested. Local health departments can usually provide a list of state-certified drinking water laboratories to which a water sample can be sent. https://ofmpub.epa.gov/apex/safewater/f?p=136:102::::::
If any contaminants are detected at levels that exceed EPA or state guidelines for public drinking water supplies, consider installing a home water treatment system or using certified bottled water for drinking.
Have your water tested to determine if any contaminants are present in your drinking water supply.
HOW TO SELECT THE CORRECT SHOWER FILTER FOR WELL WATER
I have orange hair, well water and am unhappy! WHAT SHOULD I DO????
Media is the only thing when it comes to well water and hair color. If you have a problem with your hair color turning orange or red from iron, copper, rust or sediment in your water; if you have well water, we can help you with a santé shower filter!
We have been working with our clients for years to develop a shower filter that will correct the hair color problem that comes with well water. We know that the correct type of shower filter is needed at the shower head (what we call point of use). It must be a KDF shower filter; no carbon. Carbon doesn't work in hot water. The more KDF the better. We recommend the Ultimate Dual KDF Shower Filter. This is our newest and the strongest shower filter made. Before we had the Ultimate we had the Destroyer Shower Filter which is still a wonderful shower filter for well water.
What causes the hair color problem? A combination of well water, pipes and chemicals in the hair color. We also have folks that do not color their hair, but still have orange or red hair. It's the chemicals in the well water.
Hair color Benefits: Separating Fact from Fiction
The most important contribution shower filters make toward a healthier hair is reducing the amount of chemicals that comes into direct contact with your hair.
What benefits can users expect from removing chemicals from their shower water? The primary benefit is the removal chemicals that react with the pipes and with the chemicals in the well water. Iron, rust and heavy metals that chemically bond to the protein in your hair, destroying the natural ecological balance of the hair. A quality shower filter will consistently remove 95 percent of these chemicals, resulting in softer, more manageable hair color and healthier, younger-looking skin and hair. For chemical-sensitive people, particularly small children, the elderly and sufferers of asthma or emphysema, chemical removal also is a safeguard against negative allergic reactions.
KDF: The Preferred Shower Filter Media In developing a shower filter, designers are basically limited to two media types acceptable for potable water use: granular activated carbon (GAC) and atomized brass (KDF). Other media have been tried-the most notable being calcium sulfate-but were not deemed acceptable for direct human contact.
GAC is an effective dechlorinating medium, but not in shower filters. Many early manufacturers thought its properties were directly transferrable to shower filter applications. Not so. First, carbon is not recommended for hot water use.
Unlike drinking water units, which on average, operate at ambient temperatures, shower filters are continuously exposed to temperatures ranging from body temperature to 105 degrees F. At these elevated temperatures, some of the contaminants adsorbed by the carbon can slough off and re-enter the water stream. GAC also is light in weight. Therefore, it requires a much larger housing to achieve the same density as other filter media. For example, 16 ounces of KDF can be housed in a filter body that is 3.2 ounces in weight and only a few inches long, over 30ounces in an Ultimate Shower Filter.
For GAC to achieve the same level of performance, you would need enough media to fill a bucket or two. GAC is also highly adsorbent-like a cellulose sponge-and becomes saturated in hundreds of gallons versus thousands of gallons with KDF, requiring more frequent replacement.
Today, KDF shower filters are the norm, and KDF is the preferred media among shower filter designers. It is extremely effective at chemical removal. KDF is also bacteriostatic and tends to reduce or eliminate fungus and mildew build-up in the shower. KDF is composed of 50 percent copper and 50 percent zinc. It removes free chlorine by reversing the electrochemical process that originally separated the chlorine from sodium in a brine solution.
The Role of the Shower Filter Designer! If most of today's shower filter manufacturers use KDF, what's the difference from one filter to the next? The design and manufacture. There are several considerations when using KDF that need to be factored into the final shower filter design. One of the primary issues is contact time-the amount of time the media is in contact with the water before it exits the shower head. This determines the amount of media required and the most efficient housing size. With the Sante for Health Ultimate Dual Shower Filter your water goes through twice the amount of media for twice the cleaning power!
