Our approach to water testing

Clean Water Center offers free, in-home water testing during our consultations. We make the process easy with our experienced technicians guiding you every step of the way.

  1. Identifying your water quality needs & concerns
    Our technicians will start the appointment by identifying your needs and water quality concerns by asking preliminary questions. They will then explain possible water problems and their causes.
  2. Inspecting existing water treatment equipment
    If you have a water softener, water conditioner, water filter, or other water treatment system and your property still has problems, our technicians will inspect the equipment to determine if there are issues with how the unit is operating.
  3. Finding a location for a new water treatment system
    If you do not have existing water treatment equipment, our technicians will inspect the property to determine the best location to install your new equipment. They will also take this time to explain our process.
  4. Diagnosing water problems
    Did you know that 85% of homes in the United States have untreated hard water? Our technicians collect raw water samples for testing. They will also inspect the water for distinct odors or visual symptoms, such as water stains from iron, low-pH water, or hard water. During this time, they will explain what they're looking for and give immediate results if available.
  5. Reviewing test results
    Once our technicians receive all water testing results and finish evaluating the water quality, they recommend water treatment options that suit your needs. They will also inform you of whether you need additional lab testing through our sister company, Clean Water Testing. Those results may take about a week.

Our job is to help you understand your unique water quality problems and create healthier, more enjoyable water!

What are common water quality problems?

Some of the most common water problems can differ by location and other factors inside the property. That is why we provide a personalized approach to water treatment with thorough diagnostics. After water testing, we can design specialized solutions to create fresh, healthy water! Here are some examples of common water quality issues that we see often:

Hard Water
Hard Water in Oconomowoc Home

Hard water is one of the most common water quality issues in households. When minerals, like calcium, dissolve in the water passing through the earth, the particles carry over into your home. Water hardness can lead to blocked, clogged pipes and other plumbing issues. It will also lower the efficiency of water-using appliances, including washer machines, dishwashers, and coffee makers. Plus, hard water can lead to dry, scratchy skin and hair.

Chlorine in Drinking Water in Muskego Home

Chlorine is a cleaning agent used to protect water, especially for water companies and cities that provide water to residents. Water providers add chlorine to prevent bacteria in water. But chlorine is no longer necessary once reaching your home. If your home has extra chlorine, it'll leave a nasty taste and foul odor and cause dry, scratchy skin.

Hydrogen Sulfide
Sulfuric Water in Green Bay Home

The most noticeable sign of hydrogen sulfide in water is the foul, rotten-egg-smell. Sulfer is usually a well water issue but occurs when hydrogen sulfide gas travels with water and comes from the ground. When you turn the faucet, the gas releases into the air and causes a nasty odor. Another symptom of sulfur is a greasy, discolored stain on fixtures and water-using appliances, including showers, sinks, and dishwashers.

Iron Water Stains in Dousman Home

If your water has iron, these are some of the most common symptoms:

  • Rust-colored stains on fixtures & water-using appliances
  • Metallic taste
  • Red residue build-up
  • Persistent clogged pipes & plumbing problems
  • Brown-colored water

Iron in water may start with a metallic taste or rust-colored staining, but over time, the residue can build up and cause costly plumbing problems. Sometimes, dissolved iron is completely invisible. However, it can also turn the water brown with fully-formed particles.

Low pH/Acidic Water
Acidic Water & Pinhole Plumbing Leaks in Green Bay Home

Pure water is neutral on the pH scale. However, finding pure water is usually impossible due to environmental factors. If water pH is low, it can make it acidic, causing deteriorating appliances and plumbing. Also, since the water is highly corrosive, it can cause pinhole leaks in pipes and plumbing. Another symptom of low pH is blue-green stains from oxidized metals stripping pipes, ruining sinks, toilets, bathtubs, and other fixtures and water-using appliances.

FAQs about water testing

The water treatment systems from Clean Water Center solve common water problems and prevent quality issues in the future. But we are also here for your questions and concerns!

Why do I need water testing?

When you opt for thorough and accurate water testing, you better understand your water quality issues and identify hidden problems early. Many common water problems are invisible, tasteless, and odorless. So, the only way to know is to schedule a water test.

How frequently should I do water testing?

We recommend doing a water test once a year, especially if you have well water. Water quality depends on the environment, which never stays the same. Routine water testing ensures you have a current, accurate understanding of water problems and can apply solutions before anything worsens.

Are there different types of water tests?

There are many types of water testing to address whatever concerns you have, including:

  • Store-brought, at-home water tests
  • Expert water testing from a technician collecting samples and interpreting results on-site
  • A technician takes samples on-site and then sends them off to a certified laboratory and our sister company, Clean Water Testing, for further analysis

Some options provide better accuracy than others. For example, store-bought water tests give a general idea of a contamination level, which won't help you determine the right water treatment system you need to ensure clear, healthy water.

What types of bacteria, chemicals, and contaminants can pollute my water?

Bacteria, chemicals, and other contaminants get into drinking water in many ways. However, the most common cause is environmental changes from:

  • Naturally occurring chemicals and minerals, such as radon
  • Chemicals from farming & factories, including fertilizers, pesticides, livestock waste, etc.
  • Cracked, damaged well caps & casings
  • Overflowing sewers
  • Wastewater treatment system issues

Bacterial and chemical changes can happen anywhere. But Clean Water Center is here to ensure proven water filter and treatment solutions to create healthy, pure water!

Are water test kits accurate?

While water test kits are usually less accurate than diagnostics from technicians, they come in many styles and provide information to guide you in choosing a water treatment system. Homeowners can conduct water testing using a store-bought kit for a ballpark estimate of what water quality issues are present. Afterward, seek advanced resources, if necessary, to accurately pinpoint contaminants. That way, we can determine the best water treatment system for your unique situation.
