ABOVE Should read ph a bit low, but we only have plastic piping although small hot water heater probably might have a copper tank in it.....though many these days are plastic.

Our tested PH was 5.5 [72 metre bore] and after four and a half years of use no problems evident as of yet.

Im not a water lover but drank some today and it tasted better than the plastic tasting stuff out of the bottles..........I know you mean problems in damage caused by this ph :wink:

PH of 6 shouldn't cause any problems

Looks like you also have a slight turbidity as we do. I suspect our water comes from a moving source as the turbidity is sometimes evident and sometimes not ... independent of surface rainfall. There is evidence that sometime way, way back our land was part of a river bed. There is still a lot of surface sand around the area and digging down a metre reveals a sand/river stone mix. Fortunately we appear to be on the edge as adjacent land the surface is a couple of metres lower .... there is a dam/reservoir up the valley!

Hi,
I was wondering where these tests are done.
The earlier one looks like its a government source.
Just had a well drilled and I'd like to know if the water is drinkable.
How do I get a sample tested and what would the cost be?
Thanks.

Mine was done at a government department just off the moat road in Chiang Mai. From memory cost about 1500 Baht

I imagine you will have something similar in your area. Perhaps the first step would be to ask whoever is responsible for your local 'village' water, or the local water department where bills are paid. Assume you will have already asked the guy who drilled your well ... he should know because actually it is law that well water must be tested before being used for domestic purposes; although, as with many things in LOS, usually ignored.

Thanks, MGV.

No, no mention of testing by well guy. As you said, not a surprise.
But I'll call him and ask then go see the local water authorities.
