Arsenic in private wells ! Every year in Maine more people are discovering arsenic in their well water. It is usually discovered when we are selling the house. A prospective buyer does a routine water test and everybody learns that it’s not all that routine. Arsenic ! Most likely it will need to be fixed before the sale can be closed. Most banks & mortgage companies require a home to have water that meets the EPA Safe Drinking Water Standards… before they will fund the mortgage for the buyer. Please feel free to call me (Chuck) at Mainely Water if you need help finding a “Certified Lab” to do the testing for you. Or… If you have already had it tested and are in need of filtration for Arsenic (or anything else), please check with us for water filtration or water softening needs. Chuck…. 207-907-9772
Is it true that folks may need Water Softeners in Glenburn Maine ? Yes. Glenburn Maine is a town of private wells. Most folks get their water from their own water well rather than a city water supply. So there are frequently problems with water quality.

Testing for Arsenic in Maine Water Wells… This is becoming a bigger issue every day. There are currently at least 2 bills being ushered through the Maine House that seek to elevate testing of well water for disease causing contaminants and specifically testing for Arsenic. If you have a private well, you should have your water tested by an independent certified lab. There are several in Maine.
- Test before you buy a new house. If you don’t, the next buyer will. That would set you up to buy a new arsenic filter system for the next buyer while your family ingested that water for several years without the benefit of filtration…. because you didn’t know.
- Test your existing house. For the same reason. If you’re going to live in the house, live there knowing the water is safe and your family is safe from water problems.
We can guide you through the testing process. We don’t actually do the analysis. That could be considered a conflict of interest. But we can order the sample containers for you and in many cases, we can even draw the samples and send them in for analysis. Call us… 207-907-9772
