Free Water Testing in Southwest Florida

Well Water, City Water, or Otherwise, We are Your Local Water Tester

Are you concerned about your water?
Thinking about having your water tested?

There are lots of reasons to find out what’s in your water…

  • Health concerns,
  • bad taste or smell,
  • dry hair,
  • itchy skin, and
  • scale buildup…

These are the most often mentioned by our clients prior to testing.

Hard Water Demonstration

It all starts with a water test.

Until then you can’t really be certain of whether or not you actually need water treatment equipment, what equipment you might need, or what settings are needed for best performance.

Even if you already know you have hard water, anyone installing equipment will still need to test the hardness levels.

In plain terms…

What does the Free Basic Water Test include?

Water Hardness:
Whether you’re on well water or municipal water, most homes in the US receive hard water. Hard water can shorten the life of your water using appliances, make your hair and skin dry and itchy, make it difficult to clean the scale on your faucets and showers, and leave water spots on your dishes and your car after washing. This test will determine the level of hardness minerals dissolved in your water.

Total Dissolved Solids:
This is an indication of the total amount of everything dissolved in your water that’s not water, which may include salts, minerals, chemicals, metals, or fluoride.

Iron:
Usually you’ll already know if you have a lot of iron in your water, which appears as orange staining in your sinks an toilets. This test will determine the amount present.

Chlorine:
A strong chlorine smell can be an indication of the over use of chlorine in your water. The right amount of chlorine kills bacteria, however, higher levels are toxic to people. This test will determine the level present in your drinking water.

pH:
The “potential of Hydrogen” is a measurement of the acidity or basicity of water. This test will determine if your water’s pH is high, low, or just right.

What will this test tell me?

With your test results (and a little explanation from our water tech), you will have the information you need to ask the right questions and to understand if you have hard water, high iron, high chlorine, or high/low pH. You’ll understand what issues these can cause to your home or to your health, and what the solutions are as well as the cost, if you decide it’s worth fixing.

What doesn't the free test cover?

We want you to understand now (so you’re not disappointed later) that the free test doesn’t test for all possible contaminants (of which there are hundreds of health concerning contaminants that the EPA doesn’t require water providers to test for, but testing for them all is costly, which is why the EPA doesn’t require it). Don’t worry though, if your concern is something specific, bacteria, Chromium 6, PFAS, etc. we can help you find a cost effective way to remove those and many others. If you are, however, wanting a comprehensive test for them, that will require a sample of water to be sent off to a laboratory with a lab fee. Either way, we will work hard to help you get what you want out of your water. We have the people, resources and tools.

Here’s how to get a free test:

1.  Once you contact us, we find an appointment time that works for you

2.  Our professional water technician stops by to test a sample of your water and immediately reports the results to you with details and answers to your questions

3.  If you’d like, the water technician can provide you with options for solving any water issues as well as assess your current plumbing configuration, so you can make an informed decision at your convenience

You can get things started by sending us your info or giving us a call directly:

*We ask for your phone number because we’ve found that it is, by far, the fastest and easiest way to schedule your water test. We will only use your number to reach you regarding your water test. We hate spam calls too.

Free water test, what’s the catch?

We exist to serve our local community. We are happy to test your water and explain what the results mean, free of charge with no obligations. However, if you do decide to act on the new knowledge of your water test, we hope that you’ll consider us to be your trusted advisor in solving your water problems. You also must be within our service area. Hopefully that doesn’t seem like a catch.

Looking for a more extensive water test?

Comprehensive water tests have to be completed by a laboratory. Depending on the type of testing, you can sometimes pay as much for a water test as you can for equipment to solve the problem. If you are concerned about specific contaminants in your water, ask our expert water technician, and they can give you some cost effective options to consider for your specific concern.

We had our well pipe burst on Wednesday after 6pm, panicking I didn’t know who to call, I searched in the area and found Certain Services. The after hours answering service was quick and extremely easy to talk to. Knowing it was valentines Day and most people are out, I didn’t expect a call so quick from their technician. Brian was able to help me on the phone get my water turned off and told me his boots just needed tied and he would be right there. Shortly after, he showed up ready to work. It had already started to get dark so we knew time was limited. He was able find the issue, work fast, and unfortunately due to it being to dark he wasn’t able to finish that night. Thankfully he retuned first thing in the morning and fixed us right up! We are very impressed with his time, ability, and commitment to making sure this was taken care of and fast! If you need a service that has quality customer service, fair prices, and one of the best techs out in the field, I say give them a call because they made sure we were fully taken care of in an extremely vulnerable situation.

They came, they saw, they cleaned and inserted new water filters, exactly what they were hired to do; no fuss, no mess, no problems. They are on yearly call to continue their work at my house.

Certain Services deserves 10 stars!!! Bill Certain did a very thorough job of testing our well water and explaining why a whole house reverse osmosis (RO) system was the best way to produce pure drinking water. Other companies just wanted to buy their water treatment systems, even if it left a lot of total dissolved solids in our water. We are so happy with our new RO system, and the honesty, integrity, and professionalism of Bill Certain and his service and office teams! The "Certain Care" monthly service has given us peace of mind and is inexpensive compared with other companies. Certain Services is the BEST!

I called Certain Services the at 8am because we had no water. They came out the same day and had me up and running. The office staff was lovely and the service guys were great! Unlike most other service companies in Florida, they PROMISED they would be out that same day and even texted when they were on their way. Highly recommend !!!!!
