Why Test Your Water?

Testing your water ensures its safety for consumption and other household uses. Common issues affecting water quality include hard water, rusty water, arsenic, sulfur, chlorine, lead, and other contaminants. Identifying these early helps you take the necessary steps to address them and protect your health.

The Water Testing Process

We offer in-home and lab water testing services. Our specialists can visit your home for a comprehensive test or collect a sample for analysis. During the test, we check for various contaminants, including:

  • Hard Water: High mineral content leads to limescale buildup.

  • Rusty Water: Indicates corroded pipes or iron contamination.

  • Chlorine: Used for disinfection but can affect taste and smell.

  • Other Contaminants: We test for nitrates, sediment, bacteria, and more.

Benefits of Water Testing

Regular testing offers several benefits, including:

  • Health Protection: Ensuring your water is free from contaminants.

  • Appliance Longevity: Preventing limescale buildup in appliances.

  • Improved Taste and Odor: Addressing sulfur and chlorine issues.

  • Environmental Impact: Reducing environmental impact and ensuring water sustainability.
