Many people believe that if they get their water from a town supply, there’s no need for testing, because towns are required to ensure safe, good tasting water for their citizens, right?
Sadly, that’s not quite correct. It is true that towns are mandated to provide safe drinking water, but the EPA defines safe in very broad terms and water that won’t kill you doesn’t have to taste good. If you’ve lived in various places over the course of your life, you know that water can taste very different from one location to the next, and it should be pointed out that sometimes, towns fail even at providing safe drinking water. Remember Flint, Michigan? The people there probably thought they didn’t have anything to worry about either, right up until people started getting sick.
Worse, according to data collected by the EPA, there are more than a thousand towns and communities scattered all across the country with water problems just as serious as Flint’s, if not more so. All that to say that public water system testing in Nokesville, VA matters, for your own peace of mind if nothing else.
As the largest and most respected independent lab in the region, we can help with that, and we’d recommend having your water tested at least once a year, with additional testing if and as you begin to detect issues or changes with the water you rely on.
The initial test will serve as a baseline, assuming no problems are found. Then, each subsequent test you have performed, you can compare it to the baseline to track any changes in your water over time. Doing this will enable you to spot problems while they’re still small, which, in most cases, will make correcting those problems a relatively simple matter.
In a perfect world, public water system testing in Nokesville, VA or anywhere else wouldn’t be necessary. Towns across the country would have strict standards they had to adhere to and it just wouldn’t be an issue. Sadly, we don’t live in that world, but that doesn’t mean that we’re powerless. Knowledge is power, and knowing what, if any problems you’ve got with the water coming out of your tap is a huge first step. After all, if you don’t know about it, or you don’t know what’s causing it, then there’s no way you can fix it.
Don’t take any chances where your own health and safety, or that of your family is concerned. Give us a call and take advantage of our public water system testing in Nokesville, VA. We’ll be more than happy to assist, and ideally, the test will confirm that there are no issues to be worried about. The peace of mind is invaluable.
