Coliform Test & Removal
Concerned About Coliform Bacteria in Your Water?
An annual coliform test is crucial to ensuring the water in New Hampshire wells is safe to drink. Coliforms are naturally occurring bacteria found in human and animal wastes. As coliforms can also be found in plant and soil material, the bacteria can pass into water through defective or aged well construction, such as through caps or faulty seals, cracks or holes in the well casing, or quite commonly in New Hampshire, during well flooding at the end of winter.
Since coliform infected water is odorless and tasteless, and contamination cannot be visually ascertained, a total coliform test should be done by a trusted water treatment specialist to determine the presence of fecal coliforms and, most importantly, E. coli, which is known to cause serious illness. While coliform bacteria in general may not cause illness, its presence is often an indicator that other disease-causing organisms, such as E. coli, may be present.
The total coliform test is a two-step process, first to determine whether or not coliform bacteria exists in the water, and second to determine whether the bacteria is of fecal origin. If the presence of these bacteria are confirmed, Capital Well has you covered. Forget about juggling contractors; our team will work with you from the first step to the last, including well repair or replacement services if necessary, caring for your systems—and the health and safety of your family’s drinking water—as if they were our own.
