How Often Should I Get My Water Tested

How Often Should I Get My Water Tested

Bacterial levels in water are constantly changing, so it’s recommended that you get your water tested once a year. Signs of contamination are another reason to get a test, and stained bathroom fixtures can be a good indicator of this. Stains that are blue, green, black, red, or rust-colored are warning signs that something isn’t quite right with your water supply. 

Doesn’t My Sink or Fridge Purify My Water?

Not necessarily. The water that you receive in your home has been purified at a local water treatment facility, however that water can be contaminated on its journey in a number of different ways. Oftentimes this pollution is invisible, so it can be nearly impossible to spot or be aware of until you start developing symptoms that alert you otherwise. Aftermarket filters are subject to error and aren’t always reliable when it comes to guaranteeing safe, clean water.

What Are the Benefits of Treated Water?

There are many benefits to consuming treated water, especially if you have a system in place in your home. Some of these benefits include:

  • Reduced risk of disease. Taking additional steps to treat your water at home reduces the chances of both short- and long-term illnesses developing in those who consume the water. Water supplies do get compromised from time to time, so it’s important to stay ahead of the curve.
  • Reduced plastic waste. Forget the need for store-bought water bottles, get a reusable one and you will have access to all of the water that you will need without having to leave your home.
  • Better lifespan and efficiency of appliances. The cleaner the water that runs through your machines, the longer they run and the less maintenance that they need.
