According to our recent survey, people searching for water treatment solutions in the Vancouver Island and Metro area are concerned about the quality of their water.Culligan of Vancouver & Vancouver Island offers free water testing so you:
- Know what’s in the water you use for drinking, cooking and bathing
- Know what type of treatment will provide you with healthy, great-tasting water
There are three common types of water problems that can be detected and addressed with a water test:
Terrible TasteLet’s be honest. The water in the Vancouver Island and Metro area can taste horrible. Between heavy chlorination and the miles of pipe city water must travel through before reaching your home, you think you’re drinking from a pool instead of your faucet. Water testing lets you know what’s causing the distaste regardless of your water supply.
Hard WaterHard water causes spots on glassware & shower doors, corrodes water-using appliances, and makes your hair and skin dry and brittle. Depending on the hardness of your water, the size of your home, and your family’s water consumption, there are a variety of treatment options. A water test will provide you the information you need to find the right size solution for your home and budget.
Drinking Water ContaminationRegardless of whether you’re on city water or well water, contamination can be a real concern. We can test for many common contaminants on-site and measure Total Dissolved Solids which will indicate the overall quality of your water supply.
Our free home water test includes testing for:
- Total dissolved solids
- Water hardness
- pH to test the acidity or alkalinity
- Iron – ferrous & ferric
Culligan has been around since 1936 and we’ve been in the Vancouver Island and Metro area for 23 years. You cannot serve a community for that long unless you take care of your customers.
It’s much cheaper for us to test your water and give you the proper equipment the first time compared to if we had to go back to correct it. The loss not only in our time and labor, but in goodwill, would far outweigh our costs involved with a water test in your home.
With the Do-It-Yourself mentality in most areas, if we started charging for a water test, we fear that too many people would get caught going with an ineffective solution that doesn’t fully take care of their needs. After all what good is water treatment if it isn’t designed to handle YOUR water?
