While many regions in the country and the world lack water that is fit for drinking, Maine’s water is comparatively cleaner and healthier for drinking. Clean water is one of the most important factors you should consider when buying a new home, especially when the property in question does not get municipal water supply. Your realtor and lawyer will need proof that you have completed a water quality test for the property.
The types and levels of contaminants may vary, and the solution will also vary accordingly. You may spend a few hundreds of dollars on a solution that cleans the water coming from the sink, to thousands of dollars that will clean the water at the source. However, it is advisable that a professional performs the water quality testing and comes up with a detailed report to help you decide on the right solution.
