Why Test Your Water?

Municipal water is required to meet Federal Standards for Water Safety but most tap water still contains unwanted substances that can and should be removed to get safe, clean, high quality water in your home. 

Some people mistakenly believe that well water is free of contaminants. Unfortunately this isn’t the case. No two wells are the same. 

Water is also aggressive and will dissolve substances it comes in contact with. And because Well Water isn’t injected with disinfectants there is a potential risk of bacteriological contamination.  

The Bottom line:

There is “stuff” in your water regardless of where it is sourced. So, it’s worthwhile to know what’s in the water to keep you, your family, and your home safe.

Common Contaminants In Tap Water

HARD WATER

In West Texas most of the water is VERY HARD. This means there is a high level of dissolved rock. Hard Water shortens the life of appliances, leaves Hard Water deposits on fixtures and dishware. Hard Water also requires chemical detergents to counter the effects of hardness and can require up to 65% more cleaning products. A simple Hard Water test can determine how much Hardness is in your water.

BACTERIA

Municipal water suppliers inject disinfectants (Chlorine) to eliminate bacteriological contamination. Well Water does not. Most Well Water is safe and free of bacteriological contamination but the only way to know is to have it Tested. A special test is required for this and must be done in a laboratory. This requires 2-4 days.

CHLORINE

Most municipal water has been treated with some form of Chlorine disinfection. Well Water does not have chlorine. Chlorine in tap water tends to dry out skin and make hair brittle. It can be higher in some parts of the city than in others.

SALTS & DISSOLVED SOLIDS

Salt is another common contaminant. It is usually higher in surface water that comes from lakes. However it isn't unusual to encounter higher than acceptable levels in some well water. The only way to know is to have the water tested.

FLUORIDE

Fluoride is commonly found in municipal water in West Texas. In excess it can cause problems. If you are concerned a special test to determine the levels of fluoride is available.
