A Skill Perfected by RJ Inspections
Water is an absolute necessity for every living organism including humans. It is necessary to make sure that the water is of good quality.

RJ Inspection provides water quality testing services to test the quality of the water you drink and use on daily basis. We make sure that you remain healthy and safe from waterborne diseases.
Public Water Systems Vs Private Water supplies
Nowadays people either get water through public water systems or private water supplies. Those who go for public water systems receive water from water companies that are responsible for testing the water quality to make sure it is according to the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations. If toxins are found in the water you drink, your water company is supposed to warn you as soon as possible. Community water systems also provide annual water quality reports to the customers. This report given to the consumers is usually called Consumer Confidence Report. It contains all the information that you may require to know about the quality of water you drink.
Private water supplies are quite different from public ones. Many people use household wells to get water for daily use. In such cases, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to get the quality of the water tested frequently to make sure it is safe to drink. Even if your water supply is currently safe and pure, regular testing can be beneficial since it provides a history of water quality. This data will assist you in resolving any future issues and collecting compensation in case someone damages the water supply.
Signs of Contaminated Water:

If you see such scales, you should know that your water has been contaminated by minerals. It is the perfect time to hire RJ inspections for Water Quality Testing Methuen.
Mold doesn’t have to have a musty smell. So, even if you cannot smell mold, you shouldn’t shrug the idea of mold off your shoulders.

Many people get develop allergies and end up spending most of their day sneezing.
Clean water doesn’t have a taste. This is quite fortunate because we are supposed to drink it multiple times every day without getting sick of it.

This kind of bacteria can be present in pipes, drains, well, and water heaters.
Water Looks Hazy
If your water looks hazy, then you should take it as a sign of impurities and contaminants. It is actually the dissolved manganese minerals and iron that makes that give such hazy color to the water. Water with high manganese levels can cause problems with motor skills, memory, and attention. Such water with high levels of iron can also cause plumbing issues as it leaves a residue that can clog the pipes over time.
Bacteria and viruses can contaminate your private water supply and cause many different waterborne diseases. If you have typhoid, diarrhea, cholera, or any other related illness, you should consider getting your water tested. You may have caught a bacteria or virus from the contaminated drinking water.

Clean Water Ensures a Healthy Lifestyle
According to EPA, you should test your water at least once a year to check if it has bacteria viruses, nitrates, high pH levels, or total dissolved solids. You should especially do this if the well is new or if you recently have repaired or replaced pipes, pumps, or any other component of the well. If you are expecting a baby, you should know that nitrates can be dangerous for the baby. You should test the water both in early pregnancy and the first six months after the baby is born. In such matters, laziness can lead to lifelong regrets.
Can Radon Gas also Contaminate Water?
Yes! Contrary to what you may think, radon gas produced by decaying uranium in the soil can also enter the water. You should frequently get the water tested to check the levels of radon in it.
