Should You Have Your Water Tested?
If your water isn’t making you sick, you might wonder if it’s worth the time to have your water tested. We think it is! We make appointments fast and easy and our basic tests are free. It’s not a big commitment on your part, but it can give you a lot of good information.
It’s even more important to call if you’ve been noticing signs of poor quality water such as a sour or bitter taste, hard water stains, and water that smells like chlorine. We can solve those problems so you don’t have to drink bottled water or scrub water stains anymore.
What Does Our Free Test Include?
Our free tests will check for mineral levels, chlorine levels, and pH levels. If you want other things tested, too, just ask! We can order many different tests for your water in addition to the free one. Here is what we look for with our basic free test:
Iron and Other Minerals
One of the most common problems is hard water. Minerals can cause lots of issues by clogging up pipes, leaving residue behind, and even staining clothes. If you’re seeing white stains on your dark clothes, yellow stains on your white t-shirts, and lots of build-up on your fixtures, you probably have hard water. We’ll test for it with our water quality testing in Rock Hill.
Before your city water gets to your house, it’s treated with chlorine. That’s so that you don’t get little visitors in your water like parasites or bacteria. While we can give chlorine the credit that it’s due for getting the water clean, you don’t want too much of it in your tap water. It can cause health problems by getting into the steam from your shower and sneaking in through your pores during a bath. If you’re coughing after taking a shower or your skin is irritated, it might be from extra chlorine.
If your teacher in school ever made you test different liquids for the pH levels, you might know a little bit about how our tests work. Water can either be acidic or basic. When we test your water, we want it to be more neutral and not have a pH that’s too high or too low. Acidic water tastes sour and can eat away at your pipes. Basic water tastes bitter and can cause your pipes to become clogged or have low water pressure.
Water Quality Solutions
Once we get your results for you, you’ll be interested to know what we can do to help improve your water. If you have too much chlorine in your water, you’ll want a whole home water purification system that’ll get rid of the chlorine before you use it for showers, baths, or drinking.
There are special filters and injectors that work well to neutralize your water if the pH is too low or too high. Water that has too many minerals can be treated with a special filter called a water softener.
