Water Testing in Nova Scotia
We want to make sure that anybody using your water source is accessing safe, clean drinking water. Water tests every 6-24 months are an excellent way to give yourself the peace of mind that your water is safe. It is also a great way to ensure that all of your water treatment equipment is operating at its full potential. On the contrary, if you do not have a water treatment system, regular testing is even more essential. Since treatment systems can solve a range of issues, without one, your water supply can be more vulnerable to changes.
The Water Shed is the best choice for water testing in Nova Scotia
Water issues can be as obvious as having an off-putting smell or taste or a discolouration in the water. On the contrary, many common issues cannot be seen or smelled. Although more difficult to identify, they can cause just as much harm as those that are easily identified. Many issues can be identified in our common water issues page and can be fixed easily with the correct water treatment system. Other issues, such as bacteria and pollutants, can only be identified through regular water testing.
