What’s in Your water? Water Testing Options

Are you concerned with the quality of the water source leading to your home? If so, you may be researching your options for water testing in Langdon. Now that you’ve reached this page, you are in the right place! You have a variety of options, and you can keep reading to learn more about the various water tests that are available.

Then, when you’re ready, we can talk to you about your options for cleaning and filtering water before it ever enters your home. There are so many benefits to investing in water testing so that you know exactly what’s in your water and whether or not you should be concerned.

Reasons to Call for Water Testing

You should call for water testing if your water is discolored or has any bad odors. You can also access data for your local water source to see what kind of contaminants may be present. If you’re concerned about the source of water leading into your home, that’s another good reason to schedule water testing.

There’s also a chance that you suspect your home has hard water, meaning that it has high mineral content. While these minerals are small enough that you cannot necessarily see them, they can have a major impact on your home’s plumbing.

How Water Testing Works 

We will take some water from taps and faucets all over your home to test your home’s water and get a good sample. Then we will test that water for a variety of different substances including:

  • Alkalinity
  • Acidity
  • Hardness
  • Heavy metals
  • Pesticides
  • Sulfurous oxides

Once we get the results, we will know what is in your water as well as how much of each potential contaminant is in your water. There are some things that may not be worrisome if levels are low enough, but at higher levels, these contaminants can be dangerous to your health.

What Happens Next?

We can review these results with you and help you decide the next steps for improving your home’s water quality. If you are only concerned with how hard the water is or how high the mineral content is, we can install a water softener to filter out these minerals.

But if you have other concerns like heavy metals or pesticides, you may want to invest in a water purifier instead. There are a variety of options, and we can talk to you about each one to tailor a water improvement solution to your unique needs.

No matter what you choose, the purifier, filter, or softener will be installed in a place where all water has to pass through before entering your home. This way, you know that all of the water across your house, not just your drinking water, is clean and free from minerals in hard water as well as other contaminants.
