There’s many ways that water can be contaminated. if the property is located in an agricultural area, the water should be tested for nitrates, and if the home is more than 30 years old, or if the plumbing pipes are joined with lead solder, then the water should also be tested for lead. It is estimated the water supplied to almost 10 million homes in America runs through older lead supply pipes at some point in the delivery process. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) requires water tests for bacteria, nitrates, nitrites and lead. The EPA recommends annual testing of private wells for bacteria and nitrite/nitrate chemical contamination. In addition, water should be tested every three years for sulfate, chloride, iron, manganese, lead, hardness and corrosion.
