The water coming into your home must be clean and safe to use. Knowing this gives Peace of Mind. If conditions are unsafe corrective actions can be taken. Water Quality Analysis should only be relied upon when provided by a certified professional. At home tests simply do not provide Laboratory quality results. I have been trained by the Maryland Rural Water Association (MWRA), and I am licensed and certified by the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE).
If the water supply to your home is a private well it is suggested to have the water tested and analyzed every 6 months. Just because the water in a home is provided by a municipality, monitoring the safety of the water, does not gaurentee that the water is safe. Testing is the only way to be sure.
