Why Should You Test The Water in Your House?

January 7, 2019

Whether it’s the ocean or your YETI cup, water is all around us. But how often do you stop and think about the quality of the water you see or drink? What about the water your family drinks inside your home? Your home’s water should be properly assessed over time.

At Kinetico San Antonio, we offer a free water test for any of your water needs. Below are just a few reasons why homeowners should conduct water tests.


Bacteria in your drinking water? Gross! Disease-causing bacteria can enable potential health concerns when neglected, especially in the immune systems of children and infants. While some bacteria is considered unharmful, the type of bacteria we’re talking about is quite the opposite.

Skin irritation

We work so hard to keep our skin healthy and hydrated. Water that is contaminated can reverse any skin care regiment. Redness, itchiness and flakiness are key signs to look for during your post-shower ritual.


Have you ever been able to actually smell someone’s water? Maybe it smelt sulfuric? Metallic? Either way, it’s all bad! Your water’s odor can not only be a sign of contamination but a turn-off to any visitors you might have.

There are a number of reasons why testing your home’s water is crucial, but there is one word that should hold the most meaning: safety. Kinetico San Antonio holds the safety of your health and home above anything else. Where there’s water, there’s a way!

Give us a call today at (210) 782-8438 to schedule a free water test. One of our professional technicians will come to your home and let you know about the safety of the water you and your family drink.

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.
