Notice the biofilm that has formed on the inside of the bottle above. This is what happens to your purification / filtration system and plumbing if it is left untreated. This was a sample collected from a client's well and left standing in a refrigerator for several weeks. It was clear and uncolored when it was collected.
Leftmost is a culture tube just after addition of a water sample. Notice the water is clear and the residue at bottom is sterile "food" to allow for growth of bacteria if they are present. The middle tube shows iron reducing bacteria after only 3 days incubation. The rightmost tube shows the deposits left by sulfur reducing bacteria that were obtained in a sample from a household well after 13 days incubation. Note that both the positive tubes had clear liquid at the start. All discoloration and a visible deposit is just what happens in your well, plumbing, and purification system if these bacteria are present.
Standard home water/sediment filters are like sieves that hold back only large particles. Most bacteria, viruses, and parasites, and many other particles are small enough to pass through this "sieve" and can therefore enter your home's drinking water when they are present.
Do your filters look like this?
If so, you may have "harmless" bacteria in your system. The same "harmless" bacteria that are present in your toilet tanks, sinks, on countertops, and in other places you probably disinfect on a regular basis with lysol, bleach, and various hand lotions and sprays.
Testing provides the information needed to decide whether or not bacteria are present, whether they can be controlled by nutrient limitation, which bacteria are present and thus what purification technology will work, and can assure you of a drinking water quality that exceeds the best municipal, well, or bottled drinking water. The money saved by not needing to buy bottled water alone will return all cost in less than one year, and the additional money saved through energy conservation and longer appliance life is an added bonus. See our section on how to choose which tests to request on a first water test. (How to Know What to Test For)
