Sometimes it’s better to have your water tested yourself instead of trusting the water quality report provided by your municipal water provider. Here’s one example why.
In recent years municipal water providers have been using more and more chloramine (to control unwanted bacteria in their distribution lines) because it’s more potent and requires fewer injection points to assure delivery of bacteria-free water compared to chlorine.
Chloramine can be effective further down the line than Chlorine. Whether your water provider uses chlorine or chloramine (or both) the concentration level that reaches your home may be lower (or much higher) than the sample taken and summarized in your annual water quality report. Chloramine levels will be much higher closer to the injection point than at the end of the water distribution line.
Homeowners with their own wells may also find it necessary to perform their own water tests. We offer many different types of water tests including testing for bacteria, metals, minerals, inorganic and organic compounds, VOC’s, trihalomethanes, pesticides, herbicides, PCB’s, radium and radon. If you don’t see the test you need here CALL for more comprehensive testing choices.
If you purchase our T5000 whole house system to clean up you well or municipal water supply here are the minimum test we recommend.
Measures Iron, Alkalinity, Hardness, pH & TDS
Measures presence or absence of bacteria only. If bacteria ispresent more comprehensive testing can then be performed.
Measures Iron, Alkalinity, Hardness, pH, TDS, chlorine, and chloramine. This test kit provides a prepaid overnight shipping label to send us your water sample (because your water sample must be received within 24 hours to accurately measure chlorine and chloramine levels in your water). If you plan to purchase a T5000 it will remove 100% of your chlorine/chloramine (and their harmful derivatives) regardless of their concentration in yourmunicipal water supply. For this reason you can instead utilize the less expensive Well Water Test Kit unless you want to know your chlorine and chloramine levels prior to installing your T5000.
These Water Test Kits will provide your water analysis within 2-3 business days of receipt of the water sample. If you are performing testing to meet a regulatory requirement or if your results may be used for litigation purposes; please CALL for more information about testing packages designed for those purposes.
We are enjoying it a great deal, and you were totally correct that my problem with reverse osmosis (RO purifiers) was due to the acid/alkaline factor. The purified water has muscle tested very well, and the taste is comparable to that of Poland Spring water which we used for years. Thank you so much for solving my previous problem with reverse osmosis. I greatly appreciate it.
