Are you on city water? Have you ever had it tested? On first read, those two questions might not seem to go together very well. After all, if you’re on city water, then of course the water is safe, so why would you need to have it tested?
Unfortunately, the people living in Flint, Michigan probably thought the same way. The simple truth is that although city water is supposed to be safe, that isn’t always the case. If you want greater peace of mind, our public water system testing service in Manassas, VA can give it to you.
Even if you’re confident that the water you rely on doesn’t contain anything that poses a health risk, you may not be happy with the flavor. Maybe it has a foul odor to it, or a bitter taste. It could be leaving dark stains in your sinks, toilets and tubs, or discoloring your clothing every time you wash them. Those are all totally valid reasons to avail yourself of our public water system testing service in Manassas, VA. After all, you can’t fix the problem until and unless you know exactly what’s causing it.
Here are just a few of the tests you can order from us:
Iron – If your sinks, toilet and tub are stained with a reddish-brown discoloration, the likeliest culprit is a high concentration of iron in your water. This test will confirm that to be the root cause of the issue.
Manganese – Like iron, a high concentration of manganese in the water coming into your home will stain your sinks, toilets and tub, along with any clothing you wash.
Sulfates – Does your water smell like rotten eggs? Sulfates are the likely culprit. This test will confirm that, and tell you how big a problem you’ve got.
While the presence of these things in your water supply usually aren’t the end of the world, why drink water that you don’t enjoy? Why use water that causes as many problems as it solves, especially when there are things you can do about it.
