Many people believe that if they get their water from a municipal supply, there is no need to test it because municipalities must provide safe, good-tasting water to their citizens, right?
Unfortunately, that is not entirely correct. While towns are required to provide safe drinking water, 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 different places throughout your life, you know that water can taste very different from one location to the next, and it should be noted that towns can sometimes fail to provide safe drinking water. Do you remember Flint, Michigan? People there probably thought they didn’t have anything to be concerned about until they started getting sick.
Worse, according to EPA data, there are over a thousand towns and communities across the country with water problems that are as severe, if not worse, than Flint’s. All of this is to say that public water system testing in Warrenton, VA is necessary, for your peace of mind.
We can help with that because we are the region’s largest and most respected independent lab. We recommend having your water tested at least once a year, with additional testing if you notice issues or changes with the water you rely on for your daily needs.
If no problems are discovered, the initial test will serve as a baseline. Then, for each subsequent test, compare it to the baseline to track any changes in your water over time. This allows you to detect problems while they are still minor, which makes correcting those problems a relatively simple task in most cases.
Remember that in an ideal world, there would be no need for public water system testing. Towns across the country would be required to adhere to strict standards, so the water quality you receive at your home should not be an issue. Unfortunately, we do not live in that world, but that does not mean we are powerless. If you find any problems with the water coming out of your tap, it is possible to fix it. However, if you don’t know about it or know what’s causing it, there’s no way to fix it.
