Tips that Tell you it’s Time to Test Your Water

Summary: Testing your water is often something that slips the mind, but it is important to do so if you notice any changes in your water supply. AquaKnow provides a wide variety of water test kits to ensure that your water is clean and safe for consumption and use.

Water is something that many of us take for granted in the United States. Do you know what to look out for when it comes to ensuring that your water is safe to drink? Many of us do not, which is where AquaKnow comes in! AquaKnow is dedicated to assisting our customers to know exactly what is in their water, by providing comprehensive water quality testing information and analytical services.

Changes in the Quality of Your Water

One of the easiest ways to determine that your water should be tested is to keep a close eye on the look, taste, and smell of it. If you notice anything amiss, you should test your water immediately. Depending on where you live, your water may look or taste a bit different than someone else’s, but you should learn quite quickly what is considered “normal” in your region. If your water becomes noticeably cloudy or its taste has changed, limit your exposure until you can properly test the quality of your water supply.

Listen to Your Body

It is extremely important to be cognizant of any changes that happen to your body upon being exposed to your water supply. If you develop a rash or any kind of skin irritation upon taking a shower or washing your hands, order a water test kit immediately. Similarly, if drinking your water upsets your stomach or gives you any other kinds of adverse effects, your body may be telling you something. Do not take any unnecessary chances when AquaKnow has made it easier than ever to test your water at home.

What is Going On Around You

There are several external factors that have an effect on the quality of your water supply. If the area where your water well is located has flooded recently, it is important to test your water to ensure that it is still safe to drink. Similarly, if you expect that any nearby oil or gas well drilling or mining has contaminated your groundwater, get it tested as soon as possible. If you are worried about a news report telling residents in your area about pharmaceuticals being found in municipal water supplies, order a test kit today! It is always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your water.
