It’s better to be safe than sorry, and the nominal cost of water testing will give you the info you need to make a decision about whether to take action or not.
What’s Wrong with Your Water?
There are plenty of contaminants that can do more than just affect the taste buds or leave a residue in the shower. Nitrates, heavy metals such as mercury and lead, bacteria, benzene, atrazine, arsenic and radon are all potential health risks. You’ll need to take them into consideration if you find them in your water.
There are also water issues that are just plain unpleasant to the senses. Minerals such as iron and sulfur as well as manganese and various other sediments may all affect the taste of your water. Moreover, high levels of calcium and magnesium (commonly known as “hard water”) may lead to piping problems in the long–term.
