Members of your household use tap water to cook, wash dishes and clothes, take baths, and to stay hydrated. Unfortunately, your home’s water supply is highly susceptible to contamination and may contain harmful pollutants.
At Hague Quality Water of Maryland, we offer a professional water testing service in Capitol Heights, MD to determine the quality of your water. Once we know what impurities are present, we will provide you with the most effective treatment solution.
Why Is Regular Water Testing Necessary?
The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) supplies water to Capitol Heights and other neighborhoods in Prince George’s County. The WSSC treats water from the Potomac and Patuxent rivers according to the standards of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Even though the WSSC maintains the highest quality standards, the commission has little control over the water quality while it flows from the treatment facility to your home. Deteriorating pipes and runoff from industrial operations are common causes of water contamination. Heavy metals from your home’s pipes may also leach into your water supply.
Because of these factors, the EPA recommends that you test your tap water at least once per year. You should also analyze your water if you notice signs of water contamination. Scheduling our water testing service at your home will ensure that no water impurity goes unnoticed.
Signs of Water Contamination
It’s not possible to detect all pollutants in your tap water, which is why regular testing is essential. However, some contaminants show their presence through visual clues, odors, or tastes.
- Your fixtures have blue-green, black, or reddish stains, indicating the presence of heavy metals
- Milky or cloudy water as a result of methane gas, dirt, or sand
- Foamy water may contain diluted sewage or detergents
- White deposits from hard water in your pipes, kettle, water heater tank, and shower
- A prominent bleach or a swimming pool smell, indicating high chlorine levels
- Earthy water smell and taste, which suggest organic matter contamination
- Sharp chemical smell and taste, indicating pesticides or volatile compounds contamination
- A rotten egg smell, indicating high levels of hydrogen sulfide
If you notice these signs of contamination, stop using the water, and schedule a water test immediately.

The impurities in the water can be harmful to your family’s health. Common waterborne diseases include:
- Respiratory illnesses such as pneumonia
- Gastrointestinal conditions, including diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting
- Skin dryness and infections
- Eye and ear infections
- Infection of existing wounds
In addition to health problems, water contamination can also result in unnecessary costs. If your water is over abundant with minerals, you could have hard water, which can also damage your plumbing and water appliances such as washing machines and water heaters, increasing repair and replacement costs.
With a water treatment solution, such as the Hague WaterMax® BEQ, you can eliminate these health hazards and costs. The Hague WaterMax® BEQ is a highly effective city water treatment solution that will eliminate contaminants in your water, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.
