It is Important to Have Quality Water Testing Done, Colorado
If you live in Colorado Springs or the surrounding areas, do you know where your municipal water comes from? Have you tested your well lately? Did you know that most home well test kits only test for one particular chemical, mineral, element, or other contaminant? The water contaminant list available to have tested for by the State of Colorado is two pages long in small type. Are you good at guessing which one might be affecting the health of your family? If you have naturally occurring arsenic in your soil, self-treating your well with hyper-chlorinating shock can create a deadly combination. Water testing needs to be done in Colorado for the health of those who live in your home. It is also one of the key things home shoppers look for when checking out a home in our area. A certified lab report from a respected, established water inspection company is a big plus to an easier property sale, and safe drinking water for your family, pets, livestock, and the garden you from which you eat.
When you need to see what is in your water, you do not want to have to wait for weeks to get answers, or play Russian roulette with the health of your loved ones guessing. Testing for nitrates and nitrites, radon and radioactivity, and other groundwater contaminants is a very real need in Colorado Springs. Most of the water used in our area is brought in from Rocky Mountain water sources – lakes, rivers, underground supplies – that are subject to run-off and contamination through spilling, dumping, or natural exposure to the vast quantity of minerals, heavy metals, and other elements that are in our local soils and man made mess. Copper and iron/steel pipes deteriorate through years of use in a home. Industrial and commercial waste, microorganisms, volatile organic compounds, fertilizers, and excessive fluoride and chlorine all affect our water. You need to get your water tested by a reliable, knowledgeable company, regularly.
