Water Testing in Dallas, TX
As much as we would like to tell you that you can always rely on the water coming from your taps or private well to be of the highest quality, this is simply not always the case. Water goes through a heavy filtration process at the Dallas, TX area municipal supply plants. However, it has a long way to travel from that plant to your home, and can fail to satisfy your expectations of clarity, taste, and even health and safety.
Fortunately, Frymire Home Services has the water quality testing services you need to gain a peace of mind about the water you drink and use in your home. Our motto is “A Higher Degree of Comfort,” and we live by that in all that we do, and in all the services we offer. Contact us today to see what we can do for your water quality.
Do You Need to Schedule Water Testing?
This is a pretty common question from homeowners. Do you really need to bother scheduling water testing services, or can you go without? Our advice is that it never hurts to know precisely what’s in your home’s water. This is especially pertinent with the water you consume—drinking water testing is a vital service. But perhaps there are some cases in which water testing makes more sense than in others.
For instance, you should absolutely invest in well water testing if you have a private well on your Dallas, TX property. There are a number of different types of sediments and biological pollutants that could be in your water supply. There is no governing agency or organization keeping an eye on your private well water, so this responsibility falls on your shoulders.
So Is Municipal Water Testing Worth It?
Yes. Well water testing is so important that it should be required, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t need to schedule water testing if you us the municipal supply. As we mentioned above, this water can pick up contaminants and pollutants as it travels from the municipal supply to your home.
If your water has a funny odor, a foul taste, or looks even remotely discolored, it’s a good idea to have it tested. This is particularly true if you have elderly or very young inhabitants in your home, as they can be especially susceptible to the illnesses that can come from contaminated water.
The Benefits of Water Quality Testing
The main benefit of this service is, of course, to know whether or not your water is safe for consumption. It’s about more than drinking water testing, however. After all, there are a number of problems that can impact your water quality.
As a result, there are also many different options to consider when treating that water. Water testing allows you access to the specific information you need to choose the treatment and filtration systems best suited to resolving your unique water quality problems.
For instance, UV water purifiers are great for killing off microbes if they exist in your water supply, but they won’t do much to solve your hard water problems. Contact us today to schedule your municipal or well water testing appointment, and we will steer you in the right direction of water filtration options.
