Our water filtration technicians get many phone calls each day asking for the largest water filter we carry. Water treatment issues can be complex and many variables affect the recommendation for a water filtration system. The first thing we must do is start at the water quality and work to the water filtration system, starting at the water filtration system and going to the water quality is just plain wrong. If a company does try to sell water filtration systems or water treatment systems without water test results, your best interests are not being considered. We always recommend independent water testing, but we also know that many people live far away from such places. Budget Water will test your water for free and not ask you to buy anything.
If you would like to send us a sample we would be happy to do a water test free of charge.
Please send your sample to:
Budget Water Testing
700 Blaw Avenue, Lab #101
Pittsburgh, PA 15238
Put the water in a plastic bottle with a plastic lid such as a 12 or 16 ounce water or soda bottle. Rinse the bottle with raw untreated water. DO NOT use any soaps or cleaners to clean the bottle as this can possibly alter your pH. Fill the bottle completely with water and as little air as possible and send it to our water testing lab immediately. It is always best to overnight the water test sample if possible. Try not to send it on a Friday or Saturday as it may sit for the weekend before testing. Please put your name and phone number in with the sample and anything else you want us to know. The very minute it arrives one of our water filtration technicians will test your water and give you a call right away.
Tests normally requested: Iron, pH, Hardness, TDS.
We have certain other tests we can do upon request.
On well water, we ask that you gather a little more information. In order for us to help you properly with your water treatment, we would need you to gather the information requested under items 7 and 17 on this page: http://www.budgetwater.com/article_faq’s.htm It should only take a few minutes around the house to get us what we need. Once you have that information, please contact us again and we can tell you EXACTLY what water filtration system you need and EXACTLY what it will cost. And you can be SURE it will work. Most people are pleasantly surprised how low priced our water treatment solutions are. Any company that does not insist on this water test information probably does not have a clue on how to properly treat water or they are selling marginal water treatment products. You should be very skeptical of such water filtration or water treatment companies.
Please don’t hesitate to give us a quick call for an evaluation of your water treatment issue. Keep in mind our water filtration technicians will not ask you to buy anything or pressure you in ANY way. They just answer your water quality questions and give you great advice. We are the online leader for water treatment and water filtration systems worldwide. We set the standard for all others to follow.
We look forward to receiving your sample.
In next week’s blog, we’ll discuss some common water treatment problems in both city water and private well water and recommendations on which water filtration system will treat them correctly.
