If you want to know why your water smells or tastes strange, a drinking water test in Anoka, MN, might give you the answers. Aquarius Water Conditioning experts have extensive experience in performing drinking water tests, and we will help determine what’s wrong with your water. We’ll also tell you exactly how we can make your water healthy and clean.
The Big Picture
While our tests can show several types of contaminants, you need to know up front that we can’t find all of them. There are instances where only a state-certified laboratory can detect any issues. For the most part, however, we’ll have a very good idea of what’s happening.
When you choose us to perform a drinking water test, your Aquarius Water Conditioning professional will closely examine the spots where water enters your home. We’ll check the kitchen, the laundry room, bathrooms, and basement – any place where a plumbing pipe brings water inside. This will give us a much better picture of the quality of the water.
Checking your water sources will also help if testing shows that you have issues. If you want a water softener or a water filtration system installed, we’ll know exactly where we should set it up.
Regarding preparing for the test, you don’t need to do much. Our professional will need access to all your water sources, such as your kitchen and bathroom sinks. That’s basically all we’ll need. We’ll have to get a sample for the test, of course. That will probably come from your kitchen sink faucet.
There’s a chance that you already have a filtration system or water softener in your home. It’s obviously not a Kinetico system installed by us. If it were, you wouldn’t be having problems. If that’s the case, we’ll also take a sample from an outside spigot. This will show us the water quality before it reaches your current softener or filtration system. We’ll get a sample from the tank if you have a private well.
Finding Out Why You have Issues
Once the analysis is performed and the samples are taken, we’ll probably ask you a few questions to better understand what’s happening with your water. This will give us all the information we need to recommend the best course of action. Here are just a few of the things we’ll want to know.
- Are there any strange odors coming from your water?
- Does your drinking water taste strange?
- When you wash your dishes and glasses, do you see spots when you take them out of the dishwasher?
- Have you had any problems with your washing machine or dishwasher?
- Do you notice that your skin or scalp itch after you shower or bathe?
- Are there brown or red stains in your sinks or toilet bowls?
