3 Ways to Know How Clean Your Home’s Water Is

Keep your family healthy with an affordable water filtration system. Start by figuring out whether the investment is necessary. Here are three simple ways to check your home’s water quality:

1. Conduct a sniff test.

Unfortunately, smelly water is a way of life for many Americans. Additives meant to control water safety can easily cause odors.

The good news is that bad odors aren’t necessarily a sign your water isn’t safe. It’s just not very pleasant to drink, bathe or wash clothes in.

Whether your water poses a risk to your health, smelly water is a good reason to purchase a whole-home filtration system.

2. Send a water sample to an independent lab.

Your local water department, conservation department or County Extension office can help with this. They can give you a list of laboratories capable of testing your water sample for contamination. Don’t worry about the lab and county officials being in cahoots, either. A lot can happen between the point where the local water supply enters the main into your home and when it leaves your water tap.

You will receive a report listing the contaminants found in your water. These can include mineral or biological particles. You’ll see whether or not the rates of contamination are within safe levels.

3. Request water testing from a plumbing company.

At Dependable Service Plumbing, we make customer satisfaction our top priority. Why? Simple. We want your long-term business. We’re not going to gouge you on an unnecessary sale and forgo having a regular customer.

After testing your water for chlorine and bromides, we’ll be able to tell you what is in your home’s water and the easiest, most affordable way to solve any problems. After all, chlorine is the main cause for plumbing fixture breakdowns!

customer review

“Dependable Service Plumbing & Air sent a pressure washing company out to clean my entire driveway, when only three small spots were unintentionally put on the corner of my driveway when my neighbor was having a replacement water heater installed. Tommy, the owner of Dependable Service Plumbing & Air, came out to look at my driveway right away, and he had Winston out to clean not only the spots off, but my entire driveway, including my front porch. Winston was very professional, as he explained the difference in concrete between my driveway and my front porch. He also explained the reason for some bad rust stains that were there as a result of metal objects that were mixed into my driveway concrete by my builder. He did an excellent job on everything, and my driveway is now clean enough to have it coated with a light concrete paint (two coats) that I had already contracted out to have done. Caretaker Services Pressure Washing did such a good job of cleaning (about 2,200 lbs. pressure on my driveway & about 400 lbs on my front porch with a household cleaner first) that my coating contractor told me that what is left of my rust stains will all be covered over by the light colored paint. I am very pleased, as he gave me a great education along with a great cleaning job! Also, I will now use Dependable Service Plumbing & Air as my plumber for all my future plumbing needs, as they did a great job for my neighbor!” –- Bill B.
