Water Testing

It is a good idea to test the water so you will know exactly what is in it—especially since your health is involved.  

When and how often the water needs to be tested depends on several factors, including the source of water, any plumbing changes, any indication of contamination, and any illness in the family that affected more than one person.


Though it is possible, it is unnecessary and expensive to test for ALL contaminants.  It is wiser to test for certain contamination indicators on a regular basis.


If you have concerns about water contamination, one of our Certified Water Specialists can conduct a partial chemical test that detects magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron, fluoride, chloride, and nitrate.  We provide this service FREE of charge if you are looking at purchasing a water purification system for your home. We can help you determine the best system for your specific needs.


Tests for chemicals (such as solvents, pesticides, and petroleum products) as well as coliform bacteria, cysts and viruses, cryptosporidium, etc.  should only be performed by an independent laboratory.  They will be able to provide you with a detailed report of their findings.  (For a recommendation of a reputable lab in your area, please contact us.)

This is especially important if you have a private or even a community well* system.  Private well households are wise to have their water tested by a lab on a regular basis. 


*EPA requires that all public water systems test for contamination and report to state or federal authorities.  This INCLUDES community wells i.e. if water is being delivered to your home, it falls under EPA guidelines. You can obtain the water quality details of your public drinking water supply from your local public water system.
