Have you ever thought about the amount of water you consume on an average day? In the morning, you may pour water from the tap into a glass for your coffee. After that, you put a load of laundry in the washing machine and start it. Then, you either take a shower or unwind in the bathtub. Later, when it's time for dinner, you heat water to cook pasta. Lastly, you run the dishwasher after the meal.

Throughout your daily routine, you depend on the water in your home. Even if you consume water from a bottle, you still encounter tap water when showering and using appliances. When you interact with something multiple times every day, shouldn't you be aware of its contents and potential effects on your health?

At Tennessee Water & Air Technology, we offer a FREE water test for any of your water needs. Below are just a few reasons why homeowners should conduct a water test.


Bacteria in your drinking water? Gross! When neglected, disease-causing bacteria can lead to potential health concerns, especially in children and infants, whose immune systems are still developing. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), over 7 million Americans get sick from water-borne illnesses every year.  



Skin Irritation

We work so hard to keep our skin healthy and hydrated. Have you ever noticed redness, itchiness, or flakiness after you shower? These are key signs of hard water, and can have a huge impact on the health of your skin and hair. Hard water, common in Tennessee, can leave a residue on your skin that leads to dryness, itchiness, and clogged pores. Hard water also strips away the natural moisture of your skin which can make you look older as dry  skin leads to fine lines and wrinkles. 



Gain Peace of Mind

Make every drink, meal, and shower beneficial, not harmful, to your family. By testing your water, you can gain peace of mind knowing that what’s in your water is exactly what you want and nothing more. Tennessee Water & Air Technology has been helping  families stay healthy for over 40 years! 




Foul Smell, Bad-Colored Water, or Stains From Water

If you taste, see, or smell something odd coming from your faucets such as a rotten egg smell or discoloration, it could indicate a significant contamination problem that needs to be addressed. The first step would be to test it. 

Also, keep in mind that there are many different pollutants and contaminants that could be present in your water supply and are invisible to the naked eye. Water traveling through or sitting in corroded lead pipes can pick up debris that is too small for the eye to see but that can be hazardous to your health. 

A home water filtration system can effectively remove these impurities, resulting in clean  and great-tasting water!





With knowledge comes power–the power to make informed decisions and to help keep you safe. Water testing is a great way to get a sense of your water’s overall chemistry. New homes mean new water sources and new environmental factors that could impact your water. Knowing what is in your tap water can help you make informed decisions about what your new living arrangements may need. Many contaminants–such as lead  and arsenic–may be lurking in your water that you can’t smell, taste or see.




Most people don’t pay much thought to what their water contains. However, testing water used for a variety of purposes (drinking water, cooking, cleaning, and showering) ensures you can feel confident that your family is getting pure, clean water every time you turn on the faucet.

At Tennessee Water & Air Technology, we firmly believe that every homeowner should be able to use and enjoy water of the finest quality. Therefore, whichever system you choose, your Tennessee Water & Air Technology solution will be custom-tailored to your household based on your family size, local water conditions, and home dimensions.
