Well, a guy from the water company stopped by today. He said they got there test results from 2/10, and the water tested at 3.51ppm nitrates.
He said they are only required to run two test a year and both times the water tested good for nitrates.
He said I could pay $25. and have another test run by their testing company, but the water was fine and the problem is most likely my test kit!
I have considered the possibility that my API test kit was bad. I took some water to the store and got similar readings, also replaced my nitrate kit, (IT WAS LOW ANYWAY FROM TAKING SO MANY TEST) I get the same reading on my new kit.
I bothered the neighbor today for a water sample, thinking the problem was inside my house, his water tested around 30ppm, same as mine.
I tested some bottled water, zero nitrates!
Its not my test kit!
I am unsure where to go from here. I dont want to pay $25 for a test from their testing company, unless I can be sure things are done properly!
Is it time to call the EPA?
