How long has it been since you last took advantage of our water test services in Front Royal, VA? It doesn’t matter whether you’re connected to a municipal water supply, or you rely on your own private spring or well for your family’s water, we recommend having your supply tested every 12 months.
There are two big advantages to this. First and foremost, the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the water your family relies on is safe, and is in no way causing or contributing to any sort of illness, is invaluable.
If you’re connected to a municipal water supply, you might be thinking that such an outcome is impossible. After all, the city has people whose job it is to make sure the water’s okay, right?
Well, yes and no. If you’re relying on a municipal system, there is a mandate to ensure that it’s safe, but the safety threshold is basically: ‘Drinking a glass of this isn’t going to kill you outright.’
That’s a pretty low bar, and if you want to see how badly a municipality can fail in its mission to provide clean water to its residents, you need look no further than Flint, Michigan. Almost everyone is familiar with the story. The town made national news when the Red Cross had to truck emergency supplies of water in because the water was so bad and frankly, dangerous to drink.
Unfortunately, Flint isn’t alone. According to the EPA, there are more than a thousand communities scattered all across the country that have water problems as bad as, or even worst than Flint’s. All that to say, absolutely yes, our water test services in Front Royal, VA are important even if you’re on city water, because it’s better to know with absolute certainty that your water is safe than to play a guessing game.
The other big reason people take advantage of our water test services in Front Royal, VA comes down to taste. Not all water tastes the same. If you’ve lived in different areas over the course of your life, you’ve experienced this firsthand.
Fortunately, if you don’t like the way your water tastes, you don’t have to just live with it. You can have some tests conducted, figure out what’s causing it to taste or smell bad or funny, and then take steps to correct the problem, testing again at regular intervals to make sure that the problem isn’t trying to come back, or that some new problem isn’t slowly creeping into your water supply.
Either way, we’ve got you covered. We offer a wide range of tests designed both to help keep your family safe and to ensure optimal water quality. Give our office a call today and let’s talk about how we can help you.
