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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Certain Services did an excellent job repairing and replacing what was needed for our water system following Hurricane Ian. We were scheduled a month out initially but as soon as there was an opening they called and moved up the date. Joe was our technician and he explained everything that was going on and what was needed to get our system running. He was quick and professional. He responded quickly to texts and calls, something you don't see much these days. I would recommend Certain for all of your water needs

Joe did a great job for me, we just purchased a new home and needed to understand the system, how it works and anything that needs to be looked after on a regular basis. Joe explained everything and was very knowledgeable about the system. Joe and Certain Services are experts on water treatment systems

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.
