Before initiating a water analysis project, it may be advantageous to know the different types of water quality problems, their causes, symptoms and the various treatment methods available. We have therefore compiled a list of the most common water problems for your convenience.
Please see the section on THE MOST COMMON WATER PROBLEMS before making your decision.
If you plan to purchase water treatment equipment or learn about performance, this section is for you. It is much more advantageous for a water treatment specialist to base equipment recommendations on a professional analysis. This is why most water treatment equipment dealers reimburse all or part of the costs of the analysis upon purchase of the equipment.
Gone are the days when water analyses were performed by non-specialized, untrained companies. Demand a water analysis by a laboratory that is accredited by the competent authorities. The Ministry of Environment of Quebec and Health Canada recommend that water analysis should be performed twice a year by an accredited laboratory. No equipment recommendation should be made before the water treatment equipment specialists have referred to analysis reports specific to each customer and each application.
You will thus be assured of the quality and accuracy of the results. You and your water treatment specialist will be better oriented in the choice of the equipment, as needed. The majority of poor drinking water facilities are directly related to the absence of an appropriate, professional water analysis.
