The Benefits of Water Tests and Why Marylanders Need to Have Their Water Tested

At Hague Quality Water of Maryland, one of the things we pride ourselves on is providing high-quality professional water tests. We want to make sure every Maryland resident has access to highly accurate testing services, so we analyze water for free, no strings attached.

Nothing is more important than your health, and the quality of your drinking water will have a big impact.  That’s why we provide our water testing analysis for free to homes across Maryland, including Bethesda, Prince George’s County, and Silver Spring.

Testing Benefits

Professional water analysis offers many benefits, including:

  • Highly accurate results, no false readings.
  • Protect your health by identifying contaminants.
  • Enjoy better-tasting water.
  • Protect piping and appliances.
  • And with Hague, it’s free!

It’s important to test your home or business’s water to ensure that it is clean, pure, and free from dangerous contaminants. If you fail to test your water, you could expose your family to dangerous substances and compromise their health, as well as yours.

Further, contaminants can ruin your washing machine, coffee pot, and other appliances connected to your piping. Your shower head could become clogged as well, and clothing may come out of the washing machine dirty. As you can see, contaminated water can truly impact your daily life.

A few years ago, lead contamination in Flint, Michigan, made headlines around the world. In this case, lead didn’t just affect the taste of the water but also caused far more serious problems. Lead can stunt the development of children, and in adults, can lead to high blood pressure, kidney disease, and reduced fertility.

And while lead is a dangerous water contaminant, it’s far from the only one. There are many different substances that could make their way into your water. Iron, arsenic, chromium, cadmium, and mercury are just some of the many dangerous things that could be in your water right now.

In some cases, your water might taste funny. If your water suddenly tastes different, or if it has an off-putting odor, you should have it tested immediately. However, contaminated water can also taste perfectly fine. Often, professional water tests are needed to uncover contaminants.

So, if you haven’t had your water tested for contaminants, you need to do so immediately! Fortunately, Hague can provide hassle-free water testing at your Maryland home.

Why Professional Water Testing is Better Than DIY

It might be tempting to order a DIY testing kit online. These days, at-home water testing kits can be purchased for $25 dollars or less. However, the quality of these inexpensive DIY kits is questionable, and even the cheapest kit is more expensive than free.

While an at-home test is better than no test all, many low-cost kits test for only a limited number of contaminants. Worse yet, the results may not be accurate. Water testing is tricky and if improperly conducted, it’s easy to get false readings. Lead or mercury might be in your water, for example, but if you don’t conduct the at-home water test properly, you might get a false reading showing that your water is clean.

Our professional technicians have years of experience and training under their belts. You can be confident that they will conduct the professional water testing properly and that if contaminants are present, we’ll find them. Likewise, with our professional testing services, you won’t have to worry about false positives.

If we find your water is clean, we’ll let you know. If we find evidence of contamination, we can conduct further testing to confirm our results. We can also work with you to identify and install a filtration system, such as the Hague WaterMax® BEQ system, that will eliminate the contaminants we find. Contact Hague Quality Water of Maryland today to have your water tested for dangerous contaminants and to ensure you and your family have the clean water you deserve.
