Many home and business owners assume that if their tap water has a clear color and doesn’t smell particularly strange, then it is clean, but having your water tested is the only way to know for certain. There are a number of contaminants that could be affecting the quality of your tap water without causing a noticeable appearance or smell. Consider the following benefits of water testing:
- Keep Your Family And/Or Staff Healthy
Small amounts of the minerals and other compounds that are commonly found in tap water may not be harmful to drink, but the excessive build up of these hazards can cause health issues if left unchecked. Tap water often must travel for miles before reaching your home, so relying on your municipality’s quality control procedures may not be sufficient.
- Avoid Exposure To Hard Water
Hard Water is water with a very high mineral content. While not extraordinarily harmful, hard water has been linked to dry skin issues, and soap, detergent, and shampoo are not as effective as they are when used with soft water. If you notice that your laundry isn’t as clean as it should be, you might have hard water.
- Protect Your Investment
Your home or business is an investment, and poor water quality does nothing for the value of your property. Hard water, besides having the aforementioned negative effects, can wreak havoc on your pipes, dishwashers, washing machines, and faucets, which can be expensive to repair.
