Free Water Testing in Hampton Roads & Tidewater

Well Water, City Water, or Otherwise, We are Your Local Water Tester

Are you concerned about your water?
Thinking about having your water tested?

There are lots of reasons to find out what’s in your water…

  • Health concerns,
  • bad taste or smell,
  • dry hair,
  • itchy skin, and
  • scale buildup…

These are the most often mentioned by our clients prior to testing.

Hard Water Demonstration

It all starts with a water test.

Until then you can’t really be certain of whether or not you actually need water treatment equipment, what equipment you might need, or what settings are needed for best performance.

Even if you already know you have hard water, anyone installing equipment will still need to test the hardness levels.

In plain terms…

What does the Free Basic Water Test include?

Water Hardness:
Whether you’re on well water or municipal water, most homes in the US receive hard water. Hard water can shorten the life of your water using appliances, make your hair and skin dry and itchy, make it difficult to clean the scale on your faucets and showers, and leave water spots on your dishes and your car after washing. This test will determine the level of hardness minerals dissolved in your water.

Total Dissolved Solids:
This is an indication of the total amount of everything dissolved in your water that’s not water, which may include salts, minerals, chemicals, metals, or fluoride.

Usually you’ll already know if you have a lot of iron in your water, which appears as orange staining in your sinks an toilets. This test will determine the amount present.

A strong chlorine smell can be an indication of the over use of chlorine in your water. The right amount of chlorine kills bacteria, however, higher levels are toxic to people. This test will determine the level present in your drinking water.

The “potential of Hydrogen” is a measurement of the acidity or basicity of water. This test will determine if your water’s pH is high, low, or just right.

What will this test tell me?

With your test results (and a little explanation from our water tech), you will have the information you need to ask the right questions and to understand if you have hard water, high iron, high chlorine, or high/low pH. You’ll understand what issues these can cause to your home or to your health, and what the solutions are as well as the cost, if you decide it’s worth fixing.

What doesn't the free test cover?

We want you to understand now (so you’re not disappointed later) that the free test doesn’t test for all possible contaminants (of which there are hundreds of health concerning contaminants that the EPA doesn’t require water providers to test for, but testing for them all is costly, which is why the EPA doesn’t require it). Don’t worry though, if your concern is something specific, bacteria, Chromium 6, PFAS, etc. we can help you find a cost effective way to remove those and many others. If you are, however, wanting a comprehensive test for them, that will require a sample of water to be sent off to a laboratory with a lab fee. Either way, we will work hard to help you get what you want out of your water. We have the people, resources and tools.

Here’s how to get a free test:

1.  Once you contact us, we find an appointment time that works for you

2.  Our professional water technician stops by to test a sample of your water and immediately reports the results to you with details and answers to your questions

3.  If you’d like, the water technician can provide you with options for solving any water issues as well as assess your current plumbing configuration, so you can make an informed decision at your convenience

You can get things started by sending us your info or giving us a call directly:

*We ask for your phone number because we’ve found that it is, by far, the fastest and easiest way to schedule your water test. We will only use your number to reach you regarding your water test. We hate spam calls too.

Free water test, what’s the catch?

We exist to serve our local community. We are happy to test your water and explain what the results mean, free of charge with no obligations. However, if you do decide to act on the new knowledge of your water test, we hope that you’ll consider us to be your trusted advisor in solving your water problems. You also must be within our service area. Hopefully that doesn’t seem like a catch.

Looking for a more extensive water test?

Comprehensive water tests have to be completed by a laboratory. Depending on the type of testing, you can sometimes pay as much for a water test as you can for equipment to solve the problem. If you are concerned about specific contaminants in your water, ask our expert water technician, and they can give you some cost effective options to consider for your specific concern.

Jason Cornett is amazing! We just moved to Suffolk about 6... months ago and he has been nothing short of a blessing. He checks up on our water system occasionally to ensure everything is up to date without us even having to ask! Our water is so soft even my family notice the difference when they visit. I highly recommend! Ask for Jason - he’s the sweetest guy ever!read more

Jason and Joesph came initially for a hot water heater... issue. But I asked a view questions about water purification systems and next thing I know I was having it installed. The water test preformed by Jason left me with zero opinions accept to install this amazing system. Our water and everything we make with it IE coffee and tea taste 1000% better. Even my dogs are more active and happy. After taking my first shower I was so happy we did. Even our laundry feels different. All in all we are so happy we had this system installed it has changed our lives for the better no doubt at all. Highly recommendread more
