Water Diagnosis

In-Store Professional Water Analysis: If you are on the municipal water supplies then just bring in a sample (6-8 oz) of water from your home. If you are on the well water, then bring in two samples of water in separate containers (6-8 oz each) before and after existing water conditioning equipment. If you do not have any equipment at this time, please bring in one sample of source water directly from the well.
