Arsenic is naturally present in rock and Michigan's groundwater. As a known carcinogen, it is imperative that you have your well tested by a certified professional to ensure it does not contain arsenic. Adams Well Drilling offers expert water testing services for all contaminants and pollutants, including this hazardous element. We will help you make sure your water is 100% safe for drinking, bathing, cooking, and every other use.
How Often Should You Test for Arsenic?
One of the most worrisome aspects of arsenic is that it is colorless, tasteless, and odorless. In other words, you won't notice there is arsenic in your water until you start experiencing symptoms of arsenic poisoning. The Centers for Disease Control recommend testing your water annually, and we recommend testing any newly purchased home or property to ensure the water is safe to drink.
What Are the Symptoms of Arsenic Poisoning?
Exposure can lead to a variety of symptoms, including nausea, abdominal pain, digestive issues, sensory and motor defects, and skin discoloration. Long-term exposure can be lethal via cancer or other serious health issues. The legal limit for arsenic in drinking water is 10 parts per billion. If we find arsenic in your well water, we have the expertise to ensure that your water and family is safe from this toxin.
