Start by Testing Your Home’s Water Supply

UV filtrationThe best way to determine if you need water treatment is to have your home’s water supply tested. Multiple testing options are available. You can purchase a home water testing kit at a relatively low cost or send a water sample to a laboratory for professional testing. Depending on where you live and how much you wish to pay, your choice of testing providers may include your local municipality, water/sewage treatment plant or agricultural extension office. Our team may even be able to assist you with some basic testing options to give you an idea of where your water quality stands.

Choosing the Right Water Treatment Solutions(s) for Your Home

The results of the test will determine which, if any, water treatment option will work best for your situation. Available options typically include:

  • Whole-home water filters: As the name implies, these filters will treat the water throughout your home, not just in specific areas such as the bathroom or kitchen. They work by forcing water through a series of filters to remove contaminants and other undesirable materials. Whole-home filters also eliminate sulfur and other substances that produce unpleasant odors in a water supply.
  • Water softeners: If testing reveals water with high mineral content, water softeners will filter these deposits to eliminate hard water. Benefits of “softer” water include needing less detergent for washing clothes, less build-up of materials in sinks, showers and toilets, and a longer lifespan for washing machines and plumbing fixtures.
  • Ultraviolet light systems: UV light systems will kill some forms of bacteria found in your water supply. They’re usually the optimal choice for eliminating bacteria in groundwater that’s been saturated by stormwater runoff.
