The Importance of Water Testing

Water treatment in Connecticut can be a bit different than treating water concerns in many other states because most residents of Connecticut rely on a personal well for their home’s water supply. Because of this, it is important to remain vigilant about regularly testing your tap water to ensure good quality, clean drinking water in your home.

Many harmful minerals and substances can contaminate your water, making it unsafe to drink, and remain nearly undetectable unless you schedule well water testing. These contaminants, such as bacteria, will need to be collected from your tap with a professional water test kit and sent to a laboratory. At H2O Equipment, we can pull these water samples for you and send them to a water testing lab, and call you with the results and treatment recommendations.

Well water can also cause some water problems that you CAN see, such as blue green staining from acidic water, orange staining from iron, white scale buildup from hardness, and more. These water problems can permanently damage your appliances, stain your fixtures, and even dry out your skin and hair. Although they are not harmful to drink, these water problems can present your with costly repairs for shower heads, coffee machines, laundry that has been stained, and even expensive hair products.

List of contaminants that H2O can pull a sample for and send to the laboratory (call us for different testing options):

  • Coliform bacteria
  • E.coli
  • Chlorine
  • Chloride
  • Fluoride
  • Nitrates
  • Nitrites
  • Radon
  • Arsenic
  • Lead

Why Test Your Water?

Water testing can help you detect various contaminants in the water that make your water unsafe to drink. It will also tell you the levels of iron, hardness, and acidity that can be major nuisances and make your water smell and taste bad.

Acidic water for example can make your water smell and taste like metal and destroy your water pipes, causing pinhole leaks. While sulfur can give your water a horrible smell. And many other contaminants are impossible to detect without water testing. Sediment can build up in your storage tank, clog your aerators on your sinks, and lead to other blockages like the laundry.

A basic home water testing kit from H2O Equipment can help you test for many kinds of these water problems. Lead, uranium, radon, or arsenic are a part of our standard water testing profile that can identify these contaminants.
