Water Testing

Air Mechanical provides complete Andover water testing services that will identify the contaminants in your water. We’ll test the PH and check it for the presence of tannins, iron, and hardness. Once we’ve completed a full analysis, we’ll consult with you to help you choose a water filtration system that fits your needs and your budget. This is especially important for residents using well water versus the city water, as they are more prone to causing sudden sickness due to contaminents. Call Air Mechanical today and take the first step towards having clean water throughout your home.

Worried about Water Contaminants?

The concern with water from a municipal system is with trace chemicals and minerals such as iron, calcium, chlorine, and chloramine. Removing chemical contaminants usually requires a reverse osmosis system that actively extracts the trace chemicals from the water. The concern for homes in rural areas also includes bacteria and other microorganisms (with which the county can assist with testing), and sediment. Those contaminants may also require filtering of the water.

This is why a Andover water testing service is an important part of determining what type of filtration system you need for your fresh water supply. There are also obvious signs that your water system may contain some of the common contaminants that we can test for.

Here are a few warning signs that may indicate that you need a professional water test:

  • Discoloration. If you notice redness or yellowing in your water or around your fixtures, this is corrosion which may indicate that your water has abnormally high levels of various types of metals, such as lead or iron. Corrosion could be caused by other problems or contaminants as well, so it’s best to have a test to make sure.
  • Strong Odors. If your water has strong odors or if it tastes bad, you could have a pH imbalance or excess salinity in your water supply. This could cause a number of problems, so call Air Mechanical for a test as soon as you notice any bad smells or tastes in your water.
  • Sudden Sickness. If the occupants in your home suddenly become ill, and everyone is drinking the tap water, there’s a strong chance that there are contaminants in your water (especially for residents using a well). This may affect pets more than humans, so keep an eye on your pets for unexplained sickness.
  • Older Plumbing. If you own an older home, your plumbing pipes probably contain lead pipes or corroded iron. Always have a water test before you buy an older home, and if you start noticing any of the problems listed above, call Air Mechanical immediately for a water test.

Regular Water Testing for Homes

You should schedule Andover water testing service with Air Mechanical at least once every year or two. We test for things like pH imbalance, too much iron, hardness, and TDS levels. If you recently had renovations completed on your home, even if plumbing wasn’t involved, you should have your water retested just in case something came loose or got into the water supply while work was being done.
