Choose a reputable company to test your water quality and install an appropriate water treatment system. Read on to learn what to ask a plumber during a water test.
Are You Licensed and Insured?
General qualifications for achieving licensure vary depending on your state. But typically, a licensed plumber must verify a given number of hours of practical experience to receive recognition as a residential plumber, journeyperson plumber, or master plumber.
An active insurance policy protects the homeowner and the contractor against unforeseen damage and associated costs. Commercial general liability insurance covers risks that can happen on your property, such as a water leak.
Which Contaminants Will My Water Test Indicate?
Another thing to ask a plumber during a water test is which contaminants the test will identify. A water test can ensure drinking water quality, track changes in the water over time, and determine the effectiveness of a water treatment system.
Water specialists can use various tests, including bacteria, mineral, and pH tests. Ask the plumber what a specific water test is checking for and whether you need another type of test to address any concerns with your water.
How Long Will My Water Treatment System Last?
A water treatment system can last anywhere from 5 to 25 years. The quality of the original water affects how hard the system must work, which affects the system’s length of service. The system’s materials and configuration also affect how long the device will last.
Regular maintenance is one essential factor for getting the most use out of your treatment device. Ask your specialist about the maintenance you will need to perform and how often you should do so.
