Water Testing Ashton MD
Ashton, MD offers a great mix of convenience and nature. The green, heavily wooded suburb of Washington, DC is just a short drive from the nation’s capital. At the same time, residents don’t have to wrestle with the crowds or intense traffic of Washington DC. Unfortunately, residents do have to worry about the quality of their drinking water.
Good thing for you, Hague Quality Water of Maryland offers free water testing services.
Why the worries? Ashton, Maryland gets its water from the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, which in turn draws its water from the Potomac and Patuxent Rivers. Both rivers have been found to be contaminated in the past and even though both rivers have been cleaned up in recent years, serious issues remain.
Not so many years ago, the Potomac was considered the most endangered river in the United States. Farm runoff, industrial pollution, and other contaminants greatly impacted the quality of the water. Runoff from nearby roadways flows into the rivers as well, contaminating the water with motor oil, gasoline and more. Additionally, The University of Maryland previously gave the Potomac a D grade rating.
The Patuxent River doesn’t fare any better. Meanwhile, the tap water coming out of your Ashton, MD home is almost certainly drawn from one of these two rivers. Do you want to trust your health and your family’s health to a water source that has been given a D grade rating?
Of course not. That’s why it’s vital to have your water tested.
Free Professional Water Testing in Ashton, Maryland
At Hague, we know just how important the quality of your water is for your health. Lead and other contaminants in your water could pose a huge risk to you and your family. Lead, for example, has been tied to stunted childhood development, increased blood pressure, and other issues.
Meanwhile, nitrates have been linked to cancer, high blood pressure, thyroid problems, and more. Unfortunately, farm run-off often carries high amounts of nitrates that end up contaminating our drinking water.
Heavy metals in your water could also damage your appliances. Your washing machine, dish water, coffee pot, and more could be ruined by poor quality water.
Add it all up and getting your Ashton tap water tested is less of an option and more of a must. It’s entirely possible that your tap water is clean, if so, you might not need a filtration system. However, if your water is contaminated, it’s important you start filtering it to protect your health and appliances.
It might be tempting to order a mail-order home water testing kit. Keep in mind that the kits can be expensive, usually costing $25 or more. Further, water testing can be tricky. It’s easy to get false-positives and false-negatives if you don’t do it right.
Fortunately, there’s a cheaper, more accurate option: let Hague Quality Water of Maryland test your water for free, no strings attached.
