Water Testing For Hardness

If you can see the buildup of white scale on your appliances, you can likely guess you have hard water. A professional hard water test can provide you with specific information.

Find out the exact level of hardness in your water, and take action with a water softening solution.

Find out the exact level of chlorine in your water, and take action with a water treatment solution. Bring out a Benjamin Franklin water quality expert to test your water and design a solution unique to your home.
