Water Testing Services

What’s lurking in your tap water?

Bacteria, lead, pharmaceuticals, and other toxins can cause health problems and other quality of life issues.

Water testing services from Carroll Plumbing & Heating will provide you with a detailed look at the contaminants in your drinking water.

Get Started

Improve Your Quality of Life

Hard water can cause issues such as reduced appliance lifespan, bathtub scum, and dry skin. We’ll test for hard water and let you know if that’s the cause of your problems.

Check for VOCs

Do you live near a gas station, buried storage tank, or oil well? There’s an excellent chance that cancer-causing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are leaching into your drinking water.

Gain Peace of Mind

Testing will provide you with the satisfying knowledge that your tap water is free from contaminants and safe to drink.

Insights into Health Issues

Contaminated tap water can contain millions of bacteria and viruses. Your drinking water could potentially contribute to current or future health problems.

Uncover the Cause of Your Smelly or Discolored Tap Water

Does your tap water have a funny smell, taste, or discoloration? A professional water test will uncover the root cause of the problem.

Check for Radon-Contaminated Water

According to the EPA, around 20-25% of the homes in the Richmond, VA, area suffer from elevated radon levels—this cancer-causing gas can make its way into your drinking water.

Water Testing Services FAQ

How frequently should I test my drinking water?

We advise that you test your home potable water at least once a year. However, if there has been a recent chemical spill or nearby environmental disaster, it’s advisable to test your water as soon as possible. If you or your partner are expecting, you should test your tap water in the early months of the pregnancy and six months after you bring the baby home.

How can my home water get contaminated?

There is a wide range of ways your home water could become unsafe to drink:

  • Sewer overflows
  • Tainted soil from businesses that no longer exist
  • Nearby proximity to a contaminated natural underground water source
  • Naturally-occuring minerals and chemicals (radon, arsenic, uranium)
  • Damaged lead pipes
