Test Your Water Quality near Plano & Frisco, TX & Know For Sure

You’ve probably heard a lot about the potential contaminants coming out of your tap. You might be wondering if drinking your tap water is really safe or not. Take the guesswork out of finding out what is in your water by hiring a trusted professional to do the job. Chrome will test your water and let you know the best course of action.

Potential Contaminants

There are various types of waterborne contaminants. Usually well water is the biggest carrier of these, but they can be in anyone’s water:

  • Bacteria & Viruses – When your tap water is treated, it doesn’t necessarily become sterile. A small amount of microorganisms is usually harmless; however, some are more dangerous than others.
  • Nitrates – If you’re near a farm area, this can be a risk. It is especially risky for infants younger than six months.
  • Radioactive Decay – It sounds a little too terrible to be true, but some deep wells should be tested for the presence of radium.
  • Metals – Everything from silver to copper to lead can occur in your water. While most people are familiar with lead’s poisonous effects, many other metals can cause detrimental health effects. Excess copper can cause anemia, for example.

This is just the short list! There are over 80 contaminants that can occur in tap water which pose a threat to your health and are regulated by the EPA. Many, such as arsenic, are completely odorless, tasteless and colorless.

We will let you know if any of your levels exceed standards and which next steps to take.
