Water Quality Testing Miami Dade & Broward County

Do you know what is in your drinking water? In Florida, we understand that there are few things that are more important than water. You want to have peace of mind that the water you are using for drinking and bathing is safe and free from contaminants and pollutants.

Is Your Water Safe?

Most homeowners today have safe water in their home, particularly if they are served by a municipal water system. Although many homes in South Florida rely on private wells, many homes are in rural areas or near large golf courses where many herbicides and pesticides are used. Older homes may have plumbing that is joined together with lead solder.

Many homeowners choose to have a professional water test done when they are:

  • Experiencing health concerns
  • Purchasing a new home
  • Refinancing a home
  • Experiencing changes in the water quality
  • Concerned with the level of chemicals and pesticides used in the area both currently or in the past
  • Concerned with their old plumbing pipes

Government Recommendations like FHA/VA Water Testing

The Florida Department of Health suggests that even though most private wells are safe, there are those that have been shown to have contaminants that may have a serious impact on health -where testing should be done to ensure this. The EPA recommends annual testing of private wells for bacteria and chemical contamination. Many private mortgage lenders, as well as FHA, VA and USDA mortgages, require well water testing for lead, nitrites, nitrates, E-coli, and bacteria as part of their underwriting requirements.

  • Some or all of the tested parameters do not meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Primary (health-related) Drinking Water Standards maximum contaminant level goals for human consumption, as well as the FHA/HUD general established statutes for maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) for water potability.
  • The EPA is responsible for the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations, which are health-related standards that establish the Maximum Contaminant Levels. MCLs are the maximum permissible level of a contaminant in water delivered to users of a public water system. MCLs are enforceable under the Safe Drinking Water Act. National Primary Drinking Water Regulations can be found on the web at:
  • **UNREGULATED: The EPA does not enforce secondary maximum contaminant levels. They are established only as guidelines to assist the public in managing their drinking water for aesthetic considerations, such as taste, color and odor. These contaminants are not considered to present a risk to human health.

Other reasons you may want to have your water tested:

  • There is a pregnant or nursing household member
  • There have been unexplained illnesses in your family
  • There has been a change in the color, clarity, smell, or taste of your water
  • A neighbor has tested positive for contaminants
  • There has been dumping or chemicals, pesticides or fuels recently or in the past
  • Your well has been repaired or replaced
  • Excessive use of fertilizers or pesticides on adjacent properties

Regular Water Testing

Here at Florida Inspections Unlimited, we have been offering professional water testing services for both drinking and well water throughout South Florida since 2008. We suggest that any drinking water from private wells be tested for bacteria or chemical contamination annually or any time the taste or color of the water has changed.

It May Look Clean, But

Florida residents are responsible for ensuring that their private well water is safe to drink so it is incumbent for all well owners to ensure their own health safety. Even though most of South Florida has good quality groundwater, water can be contaminated while still visibly looking clean. Your water may be at risk of contamination due to chemicals, pesticides, or microbial infestation and still appear clean to the naked eye.

Public Water

Even if your home is on a public or city water source, it may be important to have your water tested periodically. Although all public water systems in our state are required to perform tests to ensure safety, we know from recent news coverage of other areas how these systems that we trust can break down in lines of communication and oversight. Issues in your private plumbing and pipes can also create a problem for drinking water safety that is fed from the water source to your home or workplace.
