You're lucky to get that kind of service. My water utility office is completely unhelpful. They don't have a water chemistry expert on staff that I know of. It's really a tiny operation, but fortunately the water is excellent.Send a sample to Ward Labs and request the W-6 Household Water Test for $16.50. www.wardlab.comI just called my utility company to ask for a water report. They put connected me to their water chemistry expert (I forget the official title) and she emailed me a detailed, recent rport on the wate quality not only for the city, but for my particular sub-station as well, and it was free.
I'm lucky to have a good friend as the lab scientist at my local water treatment facility. He runs my well water through the system tests for me at no charge, but I get the feeling he's doing it on the sly. Occasionally he'll test other club members' well water for me, too, but I don't want to overstep my friendship and get him fired.
