Water Testing & Treatment

Water Testing

Is your water safe?

Not all well water problems are dangerous but some can still end up being problematic and potentially costly. Determining what you are dealing with is the first step to addressing and then avoiding any potential issues. 

We are here to help! We can assist by arranging for water testing and following that up with some recommendations based on the findings. 

First & foremost we must make sure the water is safe for you, your family and pets to drink.

There are a variety of symptoms that may indicate you have a water quality problem:

  • your water has a poor taste and/or smell.
  • your water is cloudy, murky and or is silty. 
  • you notice staining on your water fixtures and bathtub. 
  • staining can be seen on clothing/laundry.

Water Testing for Realtors, Home Buyers & Sellers

When a property reliant on a well is bought or sold it’s extremely important that the state of the well is determined. Not only do you need to know that the water is clean and safe for your family but that the equipment is in good working order. Many mortgage applications will require the collection of this information. 

We are able to provide:
  • Comprehensive well water testing and overall well inspection
  • A flow test to gauge if the amount of water available will meet your needs

Nanaimo has a pristine water source, however, the water is not pure when it reaches your home through the transmission system. Our water is now impurity and chlorine free and tastes great. We are very happy with our new system.
