How often should you have your well water tested?
Samantha Kennedy

I grew up on public water and the first time I drank well water, I think I may have spit it out. It's definitely and adjustment!
Angela Hinkle

I used to have a well and it was SWEET. I could have sold it, t tasted so good. That was not here in FL.
Melanie Taylor
01:00:17
Samantha, I was the exact opposite. I still have trouble drinking public water, so we have filters in the home to reduce those chemical flavors.
Wendy Meredith

I had a well in WV it was great water. My friend a few miles down the road had a well and the water was terrible...smelled like eggs.
Judy Corbus
01:05:13
Yes, my great-great grandmother's house in WV had the best tasting spring water. I still remember how delicious it was!
Melanie Taylor
01:07:52
The egg smell must be sulfur. At my uncles home in Delaware you can smell the sulfur terribly. He does not filter it, so I have to buy bottled water when visiting.
Samantha Kennedy
01:08:58
Sometimes when I drink well water, it feels kind of slimy in my mouth. Perhaps it's all in my head, but it's not a pleasant feeling.
Judy Corbus
01:09:53
When I lived in St. Petersburg, the neighbors watered their lawns with well water, which had a very strong sulfur smell!
Melanie Taylor
01:09:59
It's part of the soft water feel that you're not use too.
Samantha Kennedy
01:10:08
That's why it can be hard to rinse the shampoo out of your hair when you have soft water.
Melanie Taylor
01:10:14
YES!
Melanie Taylor
01:10:50
When we visit my parents in VA the soft water really bothers my husband. He comments he feels soapy all day long.
Judy Corbus
01:10:53
Yes, just a dab of soap will do the job with soft water. :)

Or you can wash and rinse and rinse and rinse your hands and they still feel like they have soap on them.
Judy Corbus
01:11:47
Yes!
Melanie Taylor
01:12:39
Panama City sends us water testing results usually twice a yer.
Wendy Meredith
01:13:11
Yes...that slimy feeling is terrible. Leaves my hair too soft too.
