When Should You Have Your Water Tested?

Water is the most precious resource for life so, when it comes to your home, you want to assure that it is safe to drink. Water testing is a pretty standard procedure that takes samples of the water running through your home and tests it for any metals, pollutants, or any harmful bacteria.

Testing your water can help you catch harmful substances in your water before it’s too late. But when is the best time to get your water tests?

Let’s discuss some indicators that should prompt water testing!

Odd Taste and Odor

If your water has an odd, metal taste to it and is causing stains in your sinks and showers, you may want to get a test for hard water.

Hard water can damage your plumbing system and appliances over time. A water softener installation should do the trick!

When Someone in Your Household Becomes Pregnant

If you, or someone else, has a baby on the way, you may want to get your water tested!

Ounce for ounce, infants drink more water than older children and adults. Additionally, they are more susceptible to harmful substances hiding in your water. It’s best to get your water tested during and after pregnancy as harmful substances can be passed from mother to child during pregnancy.

Farming Nearby

Large-scale agricultural projects produce heavy amounts of pesticides, phosphorus, and metals which can seep into your groundwater. So, if there is farming around your home, it’s best to get your water tested for any of these harmful substances.

After a Positive Radon Test

If you conduct a radon test for the air in your home and it comes back positive, there’s a chance it might be in your water source too. Testing your water for radon after a positive test or if your home is in a radon-rich area, getting a water test is a necessary next step.

Unexplained Gastro-Intestinal Illness

If your household sufferers from recurring gastrointestinal illnesses, you might have a high amount of coliform bacteria in your drinking water. This bacteria can lead to all sorts of gastric distress, so if this is a theme in your household, it’s best to get your water tested.
