At Lanz Heating & Cooling, we know how important it is to you and your family to have access to fresh, clean water in Champaign, IL. Whether you are on a municipal system or a well, here are some questions to ask and reasons to get your water tested. Once we test, we can choose the right water treatment system for your home.
Have you recently bought a new home?
If you have recently bought a new home or you are looking at homes, have the water tested. There could be a number of contaminants, from lead to nitrates. Know what’s in the water before you buy.
Are there known lead issues?
If your home plumbing system is old or contains lead pipes, you should have your water tested on a routine basis. Most of the time, plumbers will recommend replacing lead pipes, but testing will ensure that there’s no lead in your fresh water supply.
Does your water cause rust stains or have bad odors?
Any time the water in your home causes excess stains or corrosion in your fixtures, you should test for high iron and manganite levels in your water. Other metals may also be in the water such as zinc or copper.
Do you have a well?
All well pumps should have a screen that protects the pipes from getting clogged, but depending on the size and depth of your well, you may need more routine water testing. If you need a water treatment system for your well, we will ensure that you get the right type for your specific well.
