First off, no better means of testing drinking water for harmful contaminants exists than certified laboratory testing. Companies such as Suburban Water Testing have the certifications, skills and equipment necessry to make the final determination regarding the safety and purity of your drinking water.
As we have always said, and will always say, “It’s your water, your health, and your LIFE.” It makes no sense to cut corners when matters concerning your family’s health and safety come up as a result of suspected drinking water contamination.
Does this mean you should, or have to, have a certified water testing lab perform ALL your water testing? Not necessarily. The average person can perfom routine and basic water check-up testing on their own using do-it-yourself (DIY) home drinking water test kits and home water testing meters.
Home water test kits no longer require users to mix a bunch of chemicals and count drops, though one still can go that route if they choose, and the versatility of water testing meters has increased dramatically despite the average cost of water testing meters falling sharply.
Basically speaking, with lower costs per test, more tests available, faster testing possible, and much simpler testing methods available, we feel the average person has no reason to not know if they have safe, clean drinking water coming out of their faucets.
