Know What You’re Drinking.
Our water treatment experts will test your water for chemicals, metals, and other pollutants, walking you through the results so that you know exactly what is in your home’s drinking water. We test for several common contaminants that may be lurking in your pipes.
Hard water contains calcium and other minerals that cause water spots, stains, and build-up in your plumbing and water using appliances, such as your water heater.
Chlorines and Chloramines
Chlorines and chloramines are used by cities, townships, and municipalities to ensure there is no bacteria or living organisms in the water they deliver to your home. Each area uses different amounts of chemicals to treat water. In some areas, chemical levels are even higher than that of pool water- which is not healthy to be drinking.
Anything in the water that is not water is also called precipitation. This test reveals how much “junk” is in your water. It could be micro sediments, agricultural waste or industrial compounds from the groundwater, or iron or rust particles from the pipes. Water filters will clean these particles and leave you with fresher, healthier water.
How much soap and detergent are you wasting because of hard water? This test demonstrates how much soap it currently takes to achieve suds and lather, versus how much would be required if you had clean, soft water. Stop wasting detergent and enjoy softer, longer lasting clothing!
High levels of nitrates in drinking water can be dangerous to health. They are more common in shallow wells, but they can also penetrate your water from septic systems, agricultural waste, fertilizer, and more.
PH and Alkaline
High alkaline water is extremely beneficial to your health. Low PH water is acidic and can have a negative impact on your plumbing, water-using appliances, and even on your health. Water treatment systems will adjust the PH levels of your water to make it more healthy and less abrasive and acidic. This can also vastly improve the taste of your water!
Homes with high levels of iron in their water typically show red or rust-colored stains in sinks, toilets, showers, and bathtubs and on fixtures, fences, sidewalks, etc. Too much iron in your water can cause also clogged pores and excessive soap scum in your bathroom. Well water in particular often has high levels of iron.
The contaminants listed here are a few of the things we test for. We include the local township or municipality water test as well, which contains important information on levels of known contaminants in your area’s water supply.
