You take your health seriously by reading ingredients labels, scheduling doctor appointments, and drinking the recommended daily dose of water. But do you know what’s in your water?

Residents of Newington should be aware of the water contaminant concerns that affect New Hampshire’s water supplies. And to mitigate any potential hazards, we recommend getting your household water tested to assess these risks. NH Tap offers hassle-free water testing and quality water filtration services in Newington so that you can protect you and your family’s health.

Water quality in the Newington, NH area.

Like most of New Hampshire, the water quality in Newington is a mixed bag. Local authorities do their best to monitor and protect water supplies, but contamination still happens. One example was the growing concern over the presence of PFO’s and PFC’s (polyfluorinated chemicals) in some wells throughout Newington in 2017. Nearby Pease Air Force Base was determined a significant source of contamination and cleanup plans were enacted.

As research and awareness continues to highlight the importance of safe disposal for chemical hazards, hopefully these kinds of occurrences will decrease in frequency and severity.

If you’re concerned about chemicals, bacteria, or other hazards in your drinking water, we recommend you start with a test. There are options for general testing that catch common contaminants such as arsenic, bacteria, chloride and iron. Or, there are specific tests for chemicals like the ones mentioned earlier, and radioactive elements like radon and uranium.

Public Water Testing

Residents in Newington who are supplied by public water can expect annual or other regular reports with testing results. If your household’s water is supplied by the municipality, it’s also likely to be treated with a monitored balance of disinfectants, most commonly chlorine and chloramine, to counteract contamination. When samples reveal that public water has become unsafe, your water company or local government notifies you.

Despite these precautions and regulations, there is still potential your water will become contaminated. For example, aging infrastructure in or near your home, if not quickly discovered and repaired, can lead to a range of issues. Corroded pipes leave water susceptible to pollution from natural groundwater compounds, bacteria growth, or unhealthy levels of copper or iron. You are especially encouraged to get your water tested if you notice changes in color, odor, taste, or pressure.

Well Water Testing

If your water is drawn from a private well, you don’t receive the same testing and treatment that public water patrons do. Sourced from underground aquifers fed by groundwater, wells are an eco-friendly and efficient way to supply water.

However, they are also susceptible to contamination which may leave you and your family vulnerable to sickness or long-term health issues. Because they aren’t regulated and monitored in the same way as public water systems, it is imperative for homeowners to closely manage upkeep.

Water testing requires the right tools and expertise, which is where NH Tap comes in. We offer professional well water testing for New Hampshire residents. 

PFAS Water Testing

Earlier, we briefly touched on the issues Newington has faced with water pollution from nearby chemical disposal and usage at the Pease Air Force Base. The chemicals discovered were only a few in hundreds of potential human-made contaminants. 

Most notably for New Hampshire are PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) which have received heightened attention for their negative health effects and resistance to breaking down. Unfortunately, many chemicals circulate in our environments and infiltrate water supplies. But there’s good news. Advances in technology have paved the way to specifically test for these chemicals and block their entry with filtration systems.
