my grandmother died at 93 and my grandfather lives alone and frequently drives to a racetrack in another state. he is 93 this year. his main complaint which just came on this year is incontinence. he has an artesian well- my great grandfather built the house right on top of it- it's in the basement. i'm wondering if it is a kind of fountain of youth. my grandfather doesn't have a water filter or add anything to the water according to my brother. how can i get the water tested to see what the mineral content of it is and if any pollutants have gotten into it? years ago an old man who knew my grandfather would come every week to fill up big water cooler sized containers with his water. that guy also lived into his 90s too.

it might be their diet and lifestyles. Could you post what their diet has been like? I am interested.

I am guessing the water must not have much polutants because they lived long lives. I'd try inspecting the water with your eyes. You should also let the water settle in a clear glass to see if you see any sediments or minerals gather on the bottom of the glass.
