Why Water Testing is Important

Water quality varies wildly, depending on the location the supply is coming from and any treatment it is subjected to before reaching your home. If you rely on a well to get your drinking water, you will almost certainly need a water treatment system of some kind. All kinds of different contaminants can be found in untreated water. Even if you have a municipal treatment plant to rely on for your water supply, you can’t count on it being entirely effective. There will always be a chance that trace elements of harmful contaminants will make it through the treatment plant, and into your plumbing system.

Before you install a water treatment system, though, you need to know what, if any, contaminants might be lurking in your water supply. Not every water treatment system is equipped to deal with every kind of contaminant. That’s what water testing is for.

The Process of Water Testing

The water testing process involves taking a sample of the water in your water line. The sample is then screened for a number of different contaminants known to be present in water throughout the area. Lead, cyanide, arsenic, and various kinds of viruses and bacteria are just a few of the contaminants that are commonly found in untreated water.

Once the water testing is complete, your technician can recommend an ideal water treatment system to install in your home to improve the quality of your water. This will go a long way towards protecting your plumbing system, and yourself, from harmful waterborne materials. We install water treatment systems too, so you can get the entire situation taken care of in one place!
