Residential Water Testing
Water is necessary for so many things involved with the functionality and upkeep of a home: washing dishes and clothes, taking baths and showers, cooking and cleaning, and staying hydrated! You can’t clean yourself or items in your home without clean water, and you certainly don’t want to fill your body with a contaminated substance.
The first step to having clean water is knowing what impurities are present in the first place. Water Doctor’s time-tested methods will help reveal any contaminants in your water supply so that our team can decide the best way to get rid of them. The EPA recommends having your water tested at least once a year, but you can (and should) have it tested more frequently if you notice any changes, like unpleasant odors or cloudiness.
Why Do I Need Residential Water Testing?
You might think that it would be obvious if there is something wrong with your water, but contaminants are often undetectable until a family member becomes ill. Well water in particular is susceptible to contamination because it does not go through the same filtration process as water supplied from the city. Regardless of where your water comes from, however, contaminants could be present that cause unpleasant tastes and odors, staining, hard water, or illness due to bacteria.
