What Water Testing Can Tell You About Your Home’s Water

Homeowners today are often concerned about the quality of the water entering their home’s plumbing—sometimes for very good reasons. Chemicals and minerals can infiltrate the municipal water supply, and homes that use well water are also in danger of contamination.

The best way to find out if your water is healthy and not causing damage to your plumbing is to call for professional water testing in Mesa, AZ from The Sunny Plumber. We are qualified plumbing specialists for the area, and our expertise also extends to the installation and maintenance of quality water treatment systems. Here are some of the problems we can detect in your residential water supply through our water testing services:

Water Hardness

Hard water is one of the most common problems that municipal water can face, and it is a particular problem in many parts of the Valley. “Hard water” means water that contains a higher than average levels of minerals such as magnesium, gypsum, and calcium. Although hard water is rarely hazardous to drink, it can taste bad and makes it difficult to create soap lather. But most damaging is that it will build up inside pipes and fixtures and cause severe problems leading to repairs.

The Presence of Chemicals

Chemicals can enter the fresh water that comes through the municipal supply via ground seepage. Pesticides are among the more common hazardous chemicals that can reach your water in this way. Chlorine and Chloramines are often found in residential water supplies. Chemicals are also a major concern if your home receives its water supply from a well.

Viruses and Bacteria

Water treatment plants usually keep out these organic hazards from the municipal water supply, but there are still ways that your water might suffer from bacterial contamination that can cause illness throughout your household.

Wastewater Infiltration

Your home’s plumbing is designed to keep wastewater separate from fresh water. However, sewage backflow can occur that will lead to some wastewater contamination entering your fresh water lines. This is dangerous for your health, and it is important to have it detected and stopped as soon as possible.

Call The Sunny Plumber today to schedule an appointment for professional water testing service in Mesa, AZ and other parts of the Valley. We use professionals who know how to take samples from around your home, and the laboratory results will pinpoint exactly what is inside your water supply. You can then rely on our water treatment specialists to identify the installation that will help you counteract the problems in your water so you can enjoy healthier living and healthier plumbing.
