Well water is filtered naturally and does not contain the chlorine, fluoride, and other chemicals that can be found in municipal water. This does not mean that it is without risk.
A well that is too close to the surface can become contaminated with microorganisms. Depending on the local area, groundwater may contain copper, nitrates, nitrites, and other contaminants. Many of the contaminants that are cause for concern can easily go undetected. They are colorless, odorless, and tasteless.
Contaminated well water can cause a variety of health symptoms including gastrointestinal issues, fever, nausea, and long-term illness. High levels of minerals and alkaline can cause scaling and damage to pipes, fixtures, and water-using appliances.
Our Well Water Test Kit is a great screening test to help determine the quality of your water. Understanding and knowing which contaminants to test for is the first step to making sure your family’s drinking water is safe. The easy to use tests will give you results within 10 minutes, with the exception of the bacteria test which takes 48 hours for full results. There’s no need for expensive equipment or to mail samples to a lab. Each test is calibrated to the EPA standards. Once you have your results, compare them to the EPA recommendations and guidelines for water quality limits.
Remember to test your well water at least once a year. Additional testing is recommended after excessive flooding or disturbances to the soil near your well. A change in taste, color, and smell are also an indication that the water should be tested for contamination.
Know what you and your family are drinking with our eight, easy-to-use well water tests offered in one convenient kit.

Very satisfied with the water test, fairly easy to use!

Affordable–especially considering you’re getting multiple tests in one. Quick–Delivery was fast, test results were faster. Informative–Instead of just a simple test that identifies the presence of something, this test provides a scale so you can see the amount of a certain element in your water. I plan to buy again to retest my water after updating my filtration system.
Z Mckenzie (verified owner) –
Very Affordable. What I liked most about this kit was all the different tests that I could do at one time. The kit gave me all the answers I needed regarding my well water.

Larry Gauthier (verified owner) –
I purchased the complete well water testing kit. I found it to be easy to understand and use. I purchased a second test due to finding fault with my well water. I have sterilized the well and will test again .
D Richards (verified owner) –
The price is well worth the knowing if the well water is safe. I will certainly purchase another one next year and thereafter. Easy to understand instructions and simple testing procedures.
Greenacres (verified owner) –
This test was extremely close to the test I had performed by a lab. Excellent product, just wish it contained more test strips for future use. Of course that would affect their bottom line, but I digress, GREAT product!
Eric Smith (verified owner) –
Great product, very easy to use and it has the government standards in the kit so you don’t have to waste time looking them up. Very happy. The only thing I think that would improve the product is if the bacteria test was different where you fill the tube to correct level first and then add the testing material or have a second tube to fill to the correct amount. Overall though, extremely pleased
Erik Morris (verified owner) –
All test worked great. Very quick and easy to do.
RICK WILLSON (verified owner) –
The test kit worked as advertised, except the regent for either the iron or the copper (I cant remember which) was missing, so I couldnt test for that. But it did work well.
Craig (verified owner) –
Ok but gave conflicting results on hardness and ph
Sana (verified owner) –
Excellent product. Easy to use. Gave me a piece of mind about the well water that we use in our new home.
Mark (verified owner) –
Very simple to use and delighted to know that our well water is darn near perfect. Water is a little on the hard side but from what I read that’s a good thing
Ken Schubert –
A very good fast and inexpensive way to test your water. It confirmed the results I got from a “send-away” kit a few years ago, so I feel safe to say it’s accurate.
Curt K (verified owner) –
Quick and easy! Both the ordering process and the testing. I will be ordering again in about a years time.
Robert M (verified owner) –
Easy to use but very expensive for a single use kit.
David R (verified owner) –
Very convenient test kit. No waiting for the results and gave me peace of mind about my spring my water I use in my home.
Edye Wells (verified owner) –
It is easy to do. Why pay someone else to test your water when you can do it conveniently at home? I is a secure feeling to know that your water is clean.
Ed Mullowney (verified owner) –
Test kit is cost effective and easy to use.
Kim Pesko (verified owner) –
test is easy to use, puts ones mind at ease knowing well water is safe.
Susan Reisinger (verified owner) –
Easily accomplished all tests I needed at a reasonable cost.
Mike McCabe –
Seems overly expensive for a single use water test. Means that I would have to purchase 2 kits at $60 to test well water before and after my aging water conditioner.
Ashley Goulet –
Very easy to use. It gives us peace of mind knowing that our water is within the normal limits. Don’t throw out that little iron tab it is very easy to misplace. I misplaced it by accident (but found it!) even after reading the warning that’s first in the package that says don’t throw it out. Otherwise, the instructions are very clear cut and easy to use.
Stella Hamilton (verified owner) –
Easy to complete, clear directions. Great way to check safety and hardness of water.
Maxie Gunderson (verified owner) –
We just used this . It was so simple. We loved it and it told us which water softener we needed from Pelican with our well water. Good Luck everyone . You will love this testing kit. You get a bargain at 29 . 00 to take it some where and have it tested it is $130.00.
Peter Frank (verified owner) –
Results were easy to read. Some visual instructions were hard to interpret, the two vials were hard to identify. Response to support was excellent.
Ron Dilimone (verified owner) –
The test did exactly what was expected and was versatile allowing for testing of different water conditions. However I was disappointed to find that the kit only allowed for one (1) test of each condition. Make sure you get it right the first time, because you will not get a second chance. I think for a one time application, pricy! Check your local pool supplier, you may find what you are looking for at a better price and quantity.
