What water test do I need?
I'm moving into a new house next week. I'd like to have the water tested before I start replacing appliances (they're all 15+ yrs old). Should I just call a few companies (Culligan, Kinetico, Ecowater) to come out and test the water and provide a quote? Or is an independent lab test worth the $200+? (hardness, bacteria, nitrates, etc)
The water supply is municipal and I'm aware of problems with water hardness in the area.
Thanks in advance for your help.
