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.

Certain Services was great to work with. They were able to get my water heater scheduled and installed in a timely manner. Shout out to Lori, she was great to work with through entire process and Kelly for moving us up into a slot when another project cancelled and Joe the Installer, he did great and got it done quick. Thanks everyone and thumbs up to Certain Services. Thanks, Paul

I was extremely pleased with the Certain Services technician and his approach and knowledge. He took the time to explain to me how the water treatment system operated and what needed to be done as regular maintenance. It is never a good experience to learn you are in need of a major component replacement, but the technician fully explained our options and the impact of our non-functioning water softener.We will be making a decision very soon on replacing the water softener and based upon our initial exposure, it will Certain Services who does the work.1/11/2022I have been extremely pleased with the service provided by Certain Services. I believe you provided the services we needed without trying to up-sale us and your service personnel have been professional and personable.I like the way you do business and in the future I will call Certain Services for our water and plumbing needs.09/21/2022I continue to be very pleased with Certain Services. Their field technicians are prompt, professional and courteous. Scheduling was convenient and seemed well managed.

I had water loss due to an issue with water treatment system. I called and got a service person here the same day. Cody arrived on time, he was knowledgeable, polite and informative. As a widow service people seem to see a mark. This did not seem to be the case. Cody made sure I saw and understood what was going on. Thank you

From sales to installation the process was extremely efficient and easy. Lori my sales person was kind, informative and not pushy which is why I decided to purchase from Certain rather then the their competitors.Once we signed the agreement installation was setup for Two days later.Installation was easy and no hassle.My system was setup on the outside for easy access for when they come to maintain the unit and the reverse osmosis did not take up much room under my sink!Highly recommend the team at Certain!

Certain came for an estimate very soon after my first call and gave me an estimate the same day, Joe replaced my faucets, repaired several items, and got my water system all in good shape. The price was great. I have already shared this with my neighbors and I have a few more items that I will be calling Certain for. GREAT COMPANY!!!

We decided to purchase a whole house RO and after getting a referral from a friend and checking out Certain Services we decided to go forward with it. It's only been 2 days, but we love it. The install took about 6 hours and was completed with ease. Very professional plumbers that did the install. Joe explained everything once he was done and it was the best money spent in a long time.

We had a super experience with Certain Services, Inc this week. They sent a great tech, Brian, who worked quickly, efficiently to resolve our Remote Osmosis issues. Brian arrived on time, removed his shoes (without being asked)…all his tools & towels were clean, he left everything immaculate, They are now our ‘go to’ company for water issues.

I feel bad that it took me so long to leave a review. I have been using Certain Water Services for years. When Mr Certain stops by to look at the problem and give an estimate you will be left with a good feeling. I always felt Bill gave me the best solution at a reasonable price to solve the problem. He just stayed on the problem at hand and never tried to up-sell me. I have used him to replace a well pump, install a new water softener and a new hot water tank. Give yourself a break and call an honest qualified person first!

Certain Services is the best in the area for your water needs! Bill came to my home to test my water and tell me about different options for a whole home replacement system. He went above and beyond helping our family with a new system. The next week it was installed and my water is so much better than it was. I don't remember the names of the 2 technicians who installed it, but they were kind, informative, helpful, and answered all my questions. Thank you so much for everything Certain Services! Don't hesitate to call them for any water needs you may have!
