Tap Water

Water Tests for Utility Customers

We offer three levels of water testing for customers who consume water from municipal or tap water resources. Our Basic, Advanced, and Extended packages are designed to test for contaminants commonly found in tap water.

Overview

Since industrialization, we are constantly producing, consuming, and releasing man-made chemicals in our habitat. These chemicals leach through the surface, through contaminated rainwater, or contaminated water sources, and eventually end up in our kitchen tap!
Many migrated chemicals from old pipes, industry, agriculture, and other sources have no taste, color, or smell. Most of these man-made chemicals are injurious to our health and can breed a variety of health issues. Some of the highlighted abnormalities are upset stomach, the potential of attack in the nervous system, damage of the skin, or risk of having cancer, and many more.

Nitrate Is the Most Common Culprit in Your Tap Water


Authorities do test at some facilities but they themselves don't know what is actually coming out of your faucet. Although drinking water provided by public water utilities is governed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we still hear the cases of drinking water contamination all over the country. And you know who the most common culprit is: none other than nitrate.

Nitrate in drinking water is linked with concerns over infant health and cancer risk. Because synthetic fertilizer consumption has increased steadily over the past several decades, so tends to increased nitrate contamination. A recent study by scientists at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has discovered an abnormal increase in nitrate in underground water.

Testing Your Tap Water Is Mandatory


The Centers for Disease Control and the Florida Department of Health suggest regular testing of private supplies. You can test your tap water by yourself via tap water testing kits available in the markets but the results are not satisfactory and reliable. These tap water testing kits under the use of layman are a potential risk to health if the results are considered authentic.
However, the residential NYC tap water testing program includes analysis for common water quality problems, microbiological contamination, and makes recommendations regarding the potential need for water treatment.

Tests to Examine Water Quality


Nitrates Water Test

Nitrate is the most completely oxidized variant of nitrogen. It is produced during the last stages of biological decomposition, either in wastewater treatment facilities or in natural water supplies. To remain out of risk factors, nitrates water test for your faucet are highly recommended.


PH Water Test

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for monitoring public drinking water quality across the United States. Because of the association of pH with atmospheric gasses and temperature, it is strongly recommended that the water pH test must be done as soon as possible. However, pH is not a quality that falls under EPA regulation because it is considered an aesthetic quality of water. 6.5 to 8.5 is the recommended level of pH for safe drinking water. A drinking water pH test is mandatory to keep your health safe and sound.
