Water Testing in Nashville

Ensuring the Safety & Health of Your Family

Some homeowners believe that the water coming out of the faucets in their homes is naturally of a high quality. This is not always the case, however, and you could be drinking and using water in your home that falls well shy of what you’d consider great quality. If you have any concerns at all regarding the quality of your water, the best thing to do is to schedule professional water testing in Nashville, TN.

Only trained, professional water quality specialists can test your water and diagnose any problems with it accurately. From ensuring that your water is actually safe to consume to simply getting to the bottom of foul odors in that water, our water testing services are just what you need.

Contact Michael's Plumbing Service online or call (615) 645-2322 to learn more. We are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding water testing.

When is Water Testing Necessary?

There are many factors to consider that will help determine if water testing is the right choice for your home. If you’re concerned about gastrointestinal issues in your home, they may be related to your water quality. You should also have your water tested regularly if you use a private well, particularly if you also use a septic tank.

Just because you get your water from a municipal supply, of course, doesn’t mean that it is high quality. Neither does the fact that it doesn’t seem as if your water is actually making you sick. Factors including the condition of your pipes, and even the environmental conditions surrounding your property can have an impact on water quality. You should also schedule water testing following any major work on your property.

We Offer Well Water Testing & Drinking Water Testing

Even though there’s no hard and fast rule when it comes to the frequency with which you should have your water tested, there are a few general guidelines that you should be aware of. If you have a water well, you should have your water tested yearly. If you have a new baby or are nursing/pregnant, have your water tested.

Has there been chemical or fuel leaks on your property or in the area? Let us ensure that your well/drinking water is not contaminated. Changes in the quality of your water as determined by discoloration and taste should also call for testing. You can’t be too careful when it comes to your water quality.

Hire Water Testing Professionals to Do the Job

You may think that you can do a bit of internet research or buy a roll of pH strips and just test your drinking water on your own. But you absolutely must leave this type of service to trained professionals. Not only will we make sure that the results of your water testing in Nashville, TN are accurate, but we’ll also make sure that we’re reading that information correctly. Once we have, we can go about suggesting the best methods for resolving your problems. This is the type of service and results that you’ll only get when you work with professionals like those on the Michael's Plumbing Service team.

5 Reasons to Schedule Water Testing

Think of all of the things you do to make sure the things you and your family members eat and drink are safe and healthy. You may use a meat thermometer to measure food safety, and you likely limit sugar intake for the little ones. You try to monitor nutritional content and make sure you and your family members drink enough water every day. But what do you know about the quality of the water you drink?

 Chances are high that you don’t know as much as you think. Many plumbers offer professional water testing so that you can determine if any pollutants are making their way into your supply. For more information, call one of our Nashville water quality experts at Michael's Plumbing Service by dialing (615) 645-2322.

#1: WELL WATERS NEED ANNUAL TESTING

If you have a private well on your property, it’s important to test the water supply regularly. Just because you’ve had your water tested in recent years, it does not mean the results will be the same. The pH of the groundwater may change, or there may be nitrates or bacteria that appear one year and not in previous years. Test your water even if you have a treatment system in place to ensure it continues to target the pollutants on your property.

#2: PUBLIC WATER SUPPLIES MAY NOT BE AS CLEAN AS YOU THINK

Many people assume that the public water supply, which goes through an intensive treatment process before moving through your pipes, is safe enough to drink. However, there are many instances in which the public’s water treatment process glosses over some contaminants of local concern.

In addition, your pipes may be the problem. Older pipes can contain lead soldering that may eventually contaminate the water supply. It’s especially important to get the water tested if the pipes on your property are 20 years old or older.

#3: FILTERED PITCHERS AND SINK FILTERS SOLVE ONLY PART OF THE PROBLEM

Many people use filtered water pitchers or filters attached to the end of the faucet to clean the drinking water. But we think it’s important to treat the water your family members use every day, not just the water that comes from the kitchen sink faucet. A whole-house water treatment system will clean contaminants from the water you use to brush teeth, bathe, and shower with. Schedule water testing to see if a new water treatment system will benefit your family.

#4: CHLORINATION IS A CONCERN TO MANY

In small amounts, chlorine can effectively clean bacteria from the water without any adverse health effects. Still, chlorine has been linked to a number of diseases and health complications, so it’s important to test your water and find out whether your supply is over-chlorinated.

#5: HARD WATER RUINS PLUMBING

Finally, you should schedule water testing to find out whether your pipes are affected by “hard water.” This is a term used to describe water with an excess of minerals that are not, as a general rule, harmful to your health.

However, the minerals can leave behind deposits in the pipes. Ever notice a white, chalky buildup around the faucets or drains? That same buildup may be within the pipes, dishwasher, and coffee maker, blocking up pipes and appliances so you have to replace them early. Water testing is an investment in your home. After your water is tested, you can get a water softener that keeps your plumbing system in better shape.
