When Should I Schedule Water Testing?
There is not guideline set in stone for when you should have your water tested if you use water from a municipal supply. However, you must keep in mind the fact that getting your water from your municipality does not necessarily mean that it is going to be of a great quality. Even if it is treated, it is possible for your water to pick up pollutants and contaminants on its travels. If you have any reason to suspect that you have hard water or that there is any other issue with the water in your home, including cloudiness or odd tastes and/or odors, that is reason enough to have your water tested.
If you get your water from a private well, then it is advisable to have your water tested annually. Bacteria and nitrate are generally the problems that people encounter with their well water, but there could be other issues stemming from previous uses of land on or surrounding your property, in addition to other environmental factors. If there are any pregnant residents in your home, or if you have young children or elderly residents therein, you may want to consider more frequent testing. Contact us if you have any concerns.
Benefits of Professional Water Testing
Water testing is extremely beneficial to homeowners, even if you don’t have potentially dangerous pollutants or bacteria in your water. Water testing can determine for certain if your water is hard, for instance, meaning that it has too much mineral content. While these minerals may not be detrimental to your health, they can certainly prove detrimental to your plumbing system, building up in your pipes and restricting the flow of water throughout the system. It can also help to identify potential dangers that are not easily recognizable, as not every issue will result in foul odors or discoloration of the water.
Be aware of any changes in your neighborhood that could negatively affect the quality of the water in your area, including new construction, septic tank installations, or the use of pesticides and fertilizers. When it comes to your health and the quality of the water in your home, there is really no reason to be taking chances. Schedule water testing with the pros on our team today.
