What’s in the Water?


Water testing has certainly evolved from the ancient days of tasting and swirling water in the mouth like a good wine. Taste and odor are parameters that have taken on new meaning. What’s in the water? How did it get there? Is it harmful? Is it regulated? What are the limits of exposure, and what can be done to rid the water of undesirable contaminants?

Many contaminants are odorless, colorless and tasteless, and can only be detected by chemical testing.
