Free water testing for your Long Boat Key, FL home is a benefit that is well worth the time and effort it takes to schedule and conduct the evaluation of your water supply. There are a number of reasons why you should utilize the free testing, including the opportunity to protect the health of your family. At Aqua Plumbing & Air, we provide information on how complimentary water analysis is conducted and the reasons why this type of test can be so beneficial.
One reason to have a free test is to identify the mineral content of the water used in your Long Boat Key home. This is important for a couple of reasons. When it comes to drinking water, you want to make sure the elements in that water are within safe limits. Some minerals can build up in the body over time and result in toxic levels. Those levels can pave the way for the development of a number of health issues. Testing for mineral content is especially important if you have a private water source rather than relying on the municipal system for your water supply.
Presence of Contaminants
Another key reason to get a free test is to make sure your water supply is relatively free of contaminants. Contaminants can enter the water through ground seepage as well as other methods. In order to make sure that the water is safe for bathing, the laundry and most especially for drinking, it pays to have the analysis done from time to time.
Hard or Soft Water
A free test for the water used in your Long Boat Key home will also make it easier to determine if you have hard or soft water. Hard water contains higher levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium. While the levels may not be sufficient to trigger any health worries, they can have an impact on the taste of the water. This in turn can affect the taste of foods prepared by boiling and other methods that require at least some amount of water. In addition, hard water can impact the efficiency of laundry detergent. As a result, your clothes don’t feel as clean.
If the results of the test do indicate you have hard water, there are additives and filters that will help to correct the problem. Information on these solutions is relatively easy to obtain. In fact, the entity conducting the complimentary water analysis will often be able to point you in the direction of solutions that are right for your situation.
How do I Arrange for a Water Test?
Arranging for a complimentary water analysis is not as difficult as you may think. In fact, Aqua Plumbing & Air can help make the necessary arrangements. In the event that the results of the test indicate the need for some type of follow up action, we can also go over the options with you. Together, we can identify exactly what needs to be done and make the necessary arrangements to make the enhancement to your plumbing system in a reasonable period of time.
