Why Test Your Water?

Although the testing approach may seem bothersome, it is like a good routine physical by a health-care specialist. Avoiding this step is to assume that what you dont know wont hurt you. Sorry, but it will! Avoiding the truth may result in health problems and costly repairs to your plumbing system and other fluid fed equipment (protect your investment).

Water contamination can have a negative affect on water-fed equipment and on the health of your family. The affects may be immediate or long term and include everything from ruined equipment, stomach aches to serious long-term health problems.

A US Geological survey found that 70% of private wells were contaminated. The United States Environment Protection agency (USEPA) recommends that you test for a minimum of coliform bacteria, nitrate and lead, even if you have public water.

Periodically Re-test and Evaluate Performance

Simply owning a water treatment system does not guarantee that your water will be safe forever. In addition to monitoring your system and providing for replacement of products and/or parts, you also need to periodically test and re-evaluate the quality of the water coming into and going out of your system to determine if changes and /or upgrades are needed. The ultimate responsibility is yours (know whats happening in your neighborhood).

Selecting a Treatment System for Your Needs

A comprehensive approach to selecting a fluid treatment system includes:

  • Testing your water or fluid to determine the specific problems in it and in your area
  • Selecting the system and/or components of a system that will solve these problems
  • Installing and monitoring your system (retrofit or new)
  • Periodically re-testing to insure that you are maintaining the treatment system correctly and that your old problems are being treated and controlled, and that new problems have not developed.

Recommended Testing Procedure

Water testing can be a complicated process. However, working with Water Test America they make it simple. They start by testing your water for most common indicators of contamination. If they find any indicators, they can recommend further testing to help identify a specific problem. Once the problem is identified, they recommend a way to fix the problem. (They do not sell water treatment or endorse one brand over another, they simply give you information so you can make an educated purchase)
