What is water quality testing? 

Water quality testing is an important first step in making sure your home has the best water possible. The term “water quality testing” just refers to the process of analyzing water. These analyses may focus on a few aspects. Most will look for contaminants, including chemicals and organic matter. 

Your water quality test will look for the following contaminants. 

  • E.coli
  • Chlorine
  • Arsenic
  • Copper
  • Cyanide
  • Fluoride
  • Mercury
  • Nitrite

In addition to the contaminants listed above, the CDC and EPA provide regulations for the ninety different substances and their allowable levels in drinking water. Professional water quality testing is the most comprehensive home water test available. It will find which, if any, contaminants appear in your water at unsafe levels.

Why choose water quality testing? 

Often, you will hear that water quality testing is important for homes with wells. In fact, the U.S. Geological Survey in 2009 found that one in five private wells had more than the recommended number of contaminants. Clearly, testing the quality of well water is important, but it should also be done on city water. City water is generally safe, but it may have chemicals or minerals that affect the taste. 

Depending on the results of your water quality test, it may be recommended that you use a water softener or install a water filter. The test may find that chemicals, contaminants, or minerals exist at unsafe levels in your water. This situation requires water filtration, but you may want to have a water filter installed to improve the taste of your water filter as well.
