Are you on city water? If so, when was the last time you took advantage of our public water system testing service in Gainesville, VA? If you’re like most people, that may be something you haven’t even considered. After all, you’re on city water. It’s got to be safe, right? The city has a responsibility to make sure of that!
Well, yes and no. Yes, it’s true that municipal water providers have an obligation to provide safe water to citizens who rely on them for their drinking, cooking and bathing water, the simple truth is that they sometimes fail in their duties. Just ask the folks living in Flint, Michigan how happy they are with the city’s water!
Unfortunately, Flint isn’t an isolated case, either. According to the EPA there are currently more than a thousand communities scattered all across the country that have water as bad, or worse than Flint’s.
There’s another reason to make regular use of our public water system testing in Gainesville, VA though, and that is water quality. See, even if the city is succeeding in its goal to provide citizens with water that’s safe to drink, the current guidelines say nothing at all about the quality of the water and if you’ve lived in a variety of different places over the course of your life, then you know how widely water quality can vary from one location to the next.
Given that, how does the water you’re currently drinking taste? How does it smell? Does it stain your clothes when you wash them? Does it stain your teeth? Have you noticed a strange mineral buildup on your faucets and shower heads?
All of these are symptoms of low water quality. The good news is that they’re all fixable, but in order to correct them and improve the quality and flavor of your water, you have to understand the root cause that’s driving the problem in the first place and our public water system testing in Gainesville, VA can answer those kinds of questions.
If you even suspect that the water you rely on for cooking, drinking, or bathing is causing or contributing to some kind of sickness, or if you’re less than 100% happy with the quality and taste of your water, give our office a call.
We offer a wide range of tests, so if you’re not sure which ones may be right for you, just outline the reasons for your call to one of our experienced technicians. After speaking with you to gain a better understanding of your situation, he or she will be able to recommend the tests that would be the best fit for you. Give us a call when you’re ready to get started. You’ll be very glad you did!
