Free Home & Well Water Testing in Certain Areas of Central & North Florida

Know what’s in your water immediately with fast & accurate results with our free basic water test – see if you qualify!

EcoWater of North Florida offers free basic water testing with fast, accurate results in most local areas. Enter your zip code to see if you qualify for free water testing!

We will perform a basic test on your water to determine your Total Dissolved Solids, Hardness, and Chlorine content and present you with a professional analysis of the results.

Hardness Minerals
What it is - hard water contains calcium and magnesium minerals which bond with everything they touch leaving "limescale" in their wake.

Treatment – Our guaranteed water softener provides the best option for soft water on the market. It improves the water throughout your entire home while protecting your appliances and fixtures.

Iron
What it is - Iron can come in a couple different forms including dissolved and non-dissolved. Both of which can leave red/orange stains on your sinks, tubs, and toilets and can be extremely hard to remove. Iron can also cause bacteria to grow and let off an unpleasant smell.

Treatment – The EcoWater ECR 3502 is rated to remove up to 15 ppm of clear water iron. In most cases, our equipment can remove triple the iron compared to competitive brands. Should your water run red out of the faucet, an ETF AII9 Air Injection filter ahead of your water softener will usually fix the problem. In severe cases, a separate iron filter may be needed.

Chlorine
What it is - Chlorine is a chemical used by municipal & local water treatment plants to reduce harmful bacteria in the water supply. While this sounds good, chlorine and chloramines can cause a bacteria of their own to grow called trihalomethanes (TTHM) which is quite unsafe to drink or bathe in.

Treatment – The most efficient Chlorine reduction filter is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or Catalytic Carbon. Due to the high level of chlorine added to water by cities, you will really appreciate your water with chlorine reduction. See our Whole House Filtration page for more information.

Dirt & Sediment
What it is - dirt & sediment is just as it sounds. This is typically most common in well water or surface water that hasn't gone through a treatment facility.

Treatment – Dirt and sediment are found in almost all water supplies and will decrease the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances. For example, sediment in a water heater can prevent the heat from transferring to the water in the tank once sediment has built up in the bottom. Our whole house filtration system can help with this problem.

Smelly Water (Hydrogen Sulfide or Iron Bacteria)

There are typically two water contaminants that can cause your water to smell like sulfur or rotten eggs, one is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and the other is iron or sulfates.

 H2S is a mineral that is released from the earth and finds its way into groundwater. It’s especially common in well water located near shale, sandstone, coal, peat, or oil.

 Occasionally, a rotten-egg smell in your water could also be caused by a water heater or by sewage pollution in your water. If you’re on city water, the most likely explanation is your water heater.

 The most important thing to note is that it is ALWAYS worthwhile to get your water tested as H2S poses a serious potential health risk including nausea, vomiting, and other serious health effects.

PFAS, Lead, & Cyst

Water in our area has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

The chemicals Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8, and Perfluorooctane Sulfonic acid (PFOS) are bio-permanent, resistant to direct oxidation, and do not break down naturally in the environment or the human body. Studies suggest that exposure to these chemicals may lead to cancer.

Chromium 6

A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that local drinking water contains hexavalent chromium, a toxic metal that has been linked to cancer. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not require the testing for the metal, the survey found that levels in our local water were pushing the levels proposed as a safety limit by authorities. This contaminant has been proven to cause cancer. You can search your zip code to see the amount in your municipal water supply here: https://www.ewg.org/interactive-maps/2016-chromium6-lower-48.php#.WXYljtPyu-l

Arsenic

Arsenic is a common water issue in Florida, however, it can be easily and affordably removed with an under-sink filter from EcoWater of North Florida.

According to the CDC, “Arsenic can enter the water supply from natural deposits in the earth or from industrial and agricultural pollution. It is widely believed that naturally occurring arsenic dissolves out of certain rock formations when ground water levels drop significantly. Some industries in the United States release thousands of pounds of arsenic into the environment every year. Once released, arsenic remains in the environment for a long time. Arsenic is removed from the air by rain, snow, and gradual settling. Once on the ground or in surface water, arsenic can slowly enter groundwater. High arsenic levels in private wells may come from certain arsenic-containing fertilizers used in the past or industrial waste. It may also indicate improper well construction or overuse of chemical fertilizers or herbicides in the past.”

Other Contaminants
What they are - common contaminants in our area can include nitrates, lead, arsenic, pharmaceuticals, and more. These are not included in the free water test, however, we do offer full laboratory testing at an affordable price.

Treatment – Protecting the water in your home is important, however ensuring the purity of the water you are putting in your body is even more crucial. Our Reverse Osmosis drinking water system will give you a peace of mind that your drinking water is healthy, and you are going to fall in love with this drinking water system that can provide up to 50 gallons per day of delicious water.

I was having an issue with my water softner. It was draining water all over the floor of the room it was located in. I called a company that wanted $90 to come out and check the softner. I called Ecowater Systems and they came out for $40 found the problem was a clogged drain going into the ground. They cut the line just above the ground line and fixed the problem. I am very grateful. They didn't try and sell me a rebuild kit or a new water softner. They simply charged the $42.75 for a 10 point inspection and reset and regenerated the softner. When we need service in the future we will be sure to call Ecowater Systems. The tech Larry was great and explained everything. Thank YOU!!!!!

During our construction/new well we had our water tested to see what type of system we needed in order to resolve, at the very least, the sulfur smell and iron in our water. Every interaction I had with Susie was very professional, pleasant and never pushy or talking in a language I didn't understand. She recommended Tucker come out and take a look at our well and provide us a quote with what we would need to resolve our issues due to the fact we ended up having iron bacteria on top of the other problems. Tucker was very confident in the systems that Ecowater installs and gave his opinion on going with a peroxide system vs. a traditional chlorination/de-chlorination system. We ended up going with the chlor/de-chlor with a water softener and have had excellent outcomes with the system and water quality. In our previous Pasco County home with just a chlorination system and water softener (installed by another company) our dogs with sensitive stomachs were having to get bottled water because of how bad the water quality still was. With this new system we took a chance and gave our dogs water right out of the tap and they have not had a single issue and yes, it's all about the dogs 🙂 Iron bacteria, if not treated, will leave a musty smell on your clothes when they get warm from body heat and it's a very distinct smell if you have ever had it. We have not had a single item of clothing smell like this and we are sure it's due to the water systems we have installed. Overall, we are happy with the choice to go with Ecowater Systems and would recommend Susie and Tucker to anyone. They are not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.
