Should you have your water tested? Absolutely! Your water should be tested even if it seems clean. You want to be sure the water you’re using is safe for your family to use. Most municipal tap water is full of impurities and contaminants of all kinds. The kinds of substances that are in your water will depend on where you live. Certain impurities can even cause problems with taste, odor and color of the water. Even well water isn’t completely safe from contamination.
Most people need water treatment equipment in the form of a filter, a softener, or both.
Kinetico CGC offers free water testing to consumers in Michigan. Tests can be done by bringing a sample of your house water into one of the company’s stores. However, the best tests are done when a Kinetico CGC technician comes to your home and tests the water at its source. This will also give the technician a better idea of the condition of your plumbing and of your appliances that use water. When the health of your family is at stake, good water testing and installation of proper purification equipment is something no home should be without.
