Should You Test Your Water at Home?

October 24, 2017

Water plays a very important role in our lives. It is important to know that the water you are consuming and using daily is safe for your body, skin and hair. Conducting a simple home water test could be doing you a big favor.

Here are some reasons you should test your water at home.

Confirm safety for yourself and family

At the very least, conducting a home water test will give you piece of mind. It will give you the information you need to know whether or not the water you are putting into you and your family’s bodies is clean and safe.

Get rid of contaminants

It is important to reduce and limit certain chemicals found in water. Lead and fluoride are two chemicals commonly found in drinking water that need to be controlled. Small amounts of these chemicals are usually found in the water we drink, but large amounts can lead to health risks. Brass pipes lead to a higher possibility of contaminating water with too much lead. Chlorine, E. coli and mercury are other harmful chemicals sometimes found in water that make it important to test the water coming out of your faucet. You also want to know if you have hard water. Calcium, for instance, is found in the San Antonio water – making it some of the hardest in the country. A free water test will help you determine the right water softener for your situation.

Prevent any health threats

Certain chemicals commonly found in drinking water pose health risks. Too much fluoride in your drinking water can lead to health problems, but too little can lead to tooth decay. Lead is toxic to the organs in our bodies and especially to children. Ingesting too much lead can cause developmental issues and brain damage. These chemicals are also high risk for pregnant women as they can cause premature birth.

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!


I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
