Schedule a Lead Test

Removal of Lead in the Water of Your Home or Business is IMPORTANT!

Scheduling a lead test for the water in your New Hampshire home or business is important says the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), especially if your home or business was built in the 1980's or earlier. Lead is both odorless and tasteless so a lead water test is the only way to reveal its presence. BUT, lead testing is not as easy as just running the faucet and grabbing a sample. There are 5 ways that your home or business might be leaching lead into your water (see below), and to get the most accurate lead testing results, testing should be done by a certified water filtration professional (like us!)

THE 5 WAYS LEAD MIGHT BE GETTING INTO YOUR WATER
1. Copper Pipe with Lead Solder - Solder made or installed before 1986 contained high lead levels.
2. Faucets - Fixtures inside your home may contain lead. 
3. Galvanized Pipe - Lead particles can attach to the surface of galvanized pipes. Over time, the particles can enter your drinking water, causing elevated lead levels. 
4. Lead Service Line - The service line is the pipe that runs from the water main to the home’s internal plumbing. Lead service lines can be a major source of lead contamination in water. 
5. Lead Goose Necks - Goosenecks and pigtails are shorter pipes that connect the lead service line to the main. 

On January 3, 2018, a bill to help tackle household lead hazards in New Hampshire passed the House with overwhelming support. The house's version of the bill will now head back to the Senate for review.

There is NO KNOWN SAFE LEVEL of lead in a child's blood - this is stated directly from the EPA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). There is no question lead is very harmful to everyone's health! "Young children, infants, and fetuses are particularly vulnerable to lead because the physical and behavioral effects of lead occur at lower exposure levels in children than in adults. A dose of lead that would have little effect on an adult can have a significant effect on a child. In children, low levels of exposure have been linked to damage to the central and peripheral nervous system, learning disabilities, shorter stature, impaired hearing, and impaired formation and function of blood cells. The EPA estimates that drinking water can make up 20 percent or more of a person's total exposure to lead. Infants who consume mostly mixed formula can receive 40 percent to 60 percent of their exposure to lead from drinking water." Read more facts from the EPA's Basic Information about Lead in Drinking Water here.

Got lead in your water? It's not easy to find outa great article from a USA Today reporter who goes through the ringer trying to find out if lead was in her home's water. She came to the conclusion after all her time and research it was just easier to get a good water filter!

Extracting Information From Your Water Company

As you are well aware from what happened in Flint, Michigan, one of the biggest risk factors for lead-contaminated water experts say is the possible lead service line connecting into your home or business from the water main out in the street. The EPA estimates about 7.3 MILLION LEAD SERVICE LINES still deliver water to customers nationwide; this is according to a report from a research group put together by the National Drinking Water Advisory Council.

    Jonathan, I wanted to drop a couple of lines to tell you how satisfied and happy that I chose Capital Well Co. for my water needs. From your lead man Steve to your drill people, your plumbing guy and your guy on the back hoe. Everyone that cast a shadow on my door threshold were polite, professional and willing to take the time to explain and answer my questions; which were many . Jon, it was my pleasure to meet you today and pleased that you came by for a follow up visit and explain how the heater works. SO...if I get a chance to tell everyone that needs a new well, I definitely will. It is apparent there is no "I" in your team . Thank you everyone.
  • Richard Meaney

    Mr. Swain, Thank you so much for the service Capital Well provided at my home today. I left a message with you at the behest of Ed Monty. I received a prompt phone call from Greg to arrange for a service call and to discuss what might need to be done. Promptly at (actually a few minutes before) the scheduled time, Bobby showed up to perform the service. Bobby was excellent at explaining the service, why some things were needed and how the well and pump worked, and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. All in all, this was a very positive experience for us. Thanks to you and the people at Capital Well for prompt, courteous, and efficient service.
