Water Testing in Chapel Hill & Durham, NC

Much as we’d love to tell you that the water coming from your taps or private well is inherently of a high quality, this is often simply not the case. You may well find that the water coming from a municipal supply still fails to satisfy your expectations of clarity and taste, while well water really must be professionally evaluated for safety’s sake. Fortunately, Bud Matthews Services is available to ensure that the water that you are drinking is up to the highest of standards.

We offer comprehensive water testing services throughout Durham, NC, and our goal is to provide customers with the information necessary for improving their water quality as needed. Contact us today for more details, or to schedule this highly valuable service. When you see what we can do for your water quality, you’ll be glad that you did.

Bud Matthews Services provides water testing services near Durham, NC and the surrounding areas.

Who Should Schedule Water Testing?

A common question among homeowners is whether or not they should bother scheduling water testing services. Of course, our advice is that it never hurts to know precisely what is in the water that you bathe in and consume. That being said, we know that not everyone is going to wish to have their water tested. With that in mind, we’ve put together a few examples of situations in which you may want to have your water tested.

First of all, you absolutely must have your water tested if you are using a private well on your property. There are all sorts of sediments and even biological pollutants which could possibly be within your water supply. Because there is no governing agency or organization keeping an eye on your private well water, the responsibility is on your shoulders. This is not to say, though, that you need not schedule water testing if you use municipal water. This water can pick up contaminants as it travels to your home. If your water has a funny odor, a bad taste, or if you have elderly or very young inhabitants in your home, water testing is strongly recommended.

Benefits of Water Testing

The main benefit of water testing is obviously knowing whether or not your water is safe for consumption. There is more to it than this, though. After all, there are a whole lot of different issues which may plague your water quality. As such, there are also a lot of different options to consider when it comes to treating your water. Water testing, then, provides you with the specific information that you need to choose the system(s) best suited to resolving the problems you face in your unique situation.

You don’t need UV water purifiers to combat hard water, for instance. However, the fact that you know for certain that you do have hard water in no way suggests that this is the only problem that your water suffers from. Professional water testing eliminates all of the guesswork, so that you can have 100% confidence in the quality of the water that you use in your home. Contact Bud Matthews Services today to have your water tested by a consummate professional in Durham, NC.
