Frequently Asked Questions on Water Testing
What are 5 things that are measured in water to test its quality?
Water quality is determined by assessing various parameters. Regular testing of these and other parameters helps ensure that water is safe for various uses, including drinking, cooking, and bathing.
There are 5 common levels we measure in our free water test:
- pH Level: This measures the acidity or alkalinity of water. A pH of 7 is neutral, values below 7 indicate acidity, and values above 7 indicate alkalinity. The pH of drinking water typically ranges from 6 to 8.5.
- Total Dissolved Solids (TDS): This measures the concentration of dissolved substances in water, which can include minerals, salts, and metals. High TDS levels can affect the taste of water and may indicate the presence of harmful contaminants.
- Turbidity: This measures the clarity of water. Turbidity can be caused by particles, sediments, or microorganisms suspended in water. High turbidity levels can hinder the disinfection process and may indicate potential contamination.
- Coliform Bacteria: These are a group of bacteria primarily found in human and animal feces. Their presence in water indicates potential contamination and the possible presence of harmful pathogens.
- Heavy Metals: This includes substances like lead, arsenic, mercury, and cadmium. These metals can be harmful when ingested, even at low concentrations. Testing for heavy metals ensures that water is safe for consumption.
Carroll Water offers a full range of paid water analyses by local laboratories.
Do I need to test my water when it comes from a public water company (PWC)?
PWCs are required to provide annual water test results on EPA or state-regulated particles, contaminants and disinfectants used to clean their water. However, this type of testing doesn’t always identify the issues that you’re concerned about solving in your home supply. A free water test is a great way to identify specific issues and receive a unique solution plan to address them.
How fast can I solve the water issues found in the test?
Water samples are tested right in your home or business and the result is immediate so that means your water consultant can design a remediation plan during your visit. Once you select a plan and payment terms, installation can be arranged in a matter of days.
What are the most common issues identified in the free test?
Many customers know there is “something” wrong with their water, but they are not able to pinpoint their issue. Generally, in MD, Northern VA, and Southern PA service areas, the most common water issues are high levels of chlorine, total dissolved solids (TDS), ferrous or ferric iron, acidic Ph, nitrates, and water hardness.
Am I obligated to pay for the test if I don’t purchase water products?
Our customers appreciate our friendly and no-pressure advice. You will not be charged for the onsite test even if you decide on a different water partner. There may be fees for specialized tests that require lab equipment.
