Ensure Your Home Water is the Best it Can Be
When you’re in the process of buying a new home, having your water tested is essential. While public water systems are mandated to test and treat their water, these tests only cover the water that has yet to leave the treatment plant.
Once it leaves the plant, your water must pass through miles of piping, some of which may be in disrepair or contain lead, before it enters your home’s plumbing system. HomeTeam Inspection Service is equipped and eager to ensure the water in your home is high-quality and safe to consume.
Whether you are just moving in or you’re already settled and just recognizing that your water has an abnormal odor, color, or taste, our professional team can assist you with confidence.

Why Is Water Quality Testing Important?
Water quality testing is important because it helps ensure that clients' homes are safe and healthy. By testing the water, we can determine if there are any contaminants present in the water, such as bacteria or chemicals, that could be harmful to homeowners or their families. Testing also provides a baseline from which to monitor changes in water quality over time. This allows homeowners to take steps to protect their health and safety by addressing any potential issues before they become serious problems.
Why Should I Have My Water Tested?
It's important to have your water tested to ensure its quality. Having high-quality water in your home is more important than you might think. Not only does low-quality water have an unpleasant taste and smell, but it can also have a number of long-term effects on the body.
Poor water quality can result in several problems, such as:
- Neurological disorder
- Abdominal disease
- Respiratory disease
- Cardiovascular disease
Identify & Eliminate Water Contamination
According to the EPA Safe Drinking Water Act, there are two categories of contaminants. Primary contamination encompasses contaminants that have health-related effects. Secondary contamination includes contaminants with aesthetic effects.
It’s possible for your water to have no traces of Primary contaminants above the recognized limits but still contain Secondary contamination that yields a bad odor, color, and taste. Fortunately, HomeTeam has the tools and expertise necessary to identify any contamination in your water so you can ensure your family’s safety, health, and peace of mind.
Well Water Customers
If you get your water from a private well, you are responsible for scheduling water testing services. Most homeowners who use well water don’t request these services until they decide to sell their property.
The EPA highly recommends that well owners schedule a well water inspection every year and whenever they suspect an issue. You should test your well for any traces of pH, total dissolved solids, nitrates, coliform bacteria, chemicals, and any other suspected contaminants.
Common sources of contamination include:
- Road chemicals
- Pet waste
- Manure runoff
- Septic system seepage
