Are you concerned about your water?
Thinking about having your water tested?

There are lots of reasons to find out what’s in your water…

  • Health concerns,
  • bad taste or smell,
  • dry hair,
  • itchy skin, and
  • scale buildup…

These are the most often mentioned by our clients prior to testing.

Hard Water Demonstration

It all starts with a water test.

Until then you can’t really be certain of whether or not you actually need water treatment equipment, what equipment you might need, or what settings are needed for best performance.

Even if you already know you have hard water, anyone installing equipment will still need to test the hardness levels.

In plain terms…

What does the Free Basic Water Test include?

Water Hardness:
Whether you’re on well water or municipal water, most homes in the US receive hard water. Hard water can shorten the life of your water using appliances, make your hair and skin dry and itchy, make it difficult to clean the scale on your faucets and showers, and leave water spots on your dishes and your car after washing. This test will determine the level of hardness minerals dissolved in your water.

Total Dissolved Solids:
This is an indication of the total amount of everything dissolved in your water that’s not water, which may include salts, minerals, chemicals, metals, or fluoride.

Iron:
Usually you’ll already know if you have a lot of iron in your water, which appears as orange staining in your sinks an toilets. This test will determine the amount present.

Chlorine:
A strong chlorine smell can be an indication of the over use of chlorine in your water. The right amount of chlorine kills bacteria, however, higher levels are toxic to people. This test will determine the level present in your drinking water.

pH:
The “potential of Hydrogen” is a measurement of the acidity or basicity of water. This test will determine if your water’s pH is high, low, or just right.

What will this test tell me?

With your test results (and a little explanation from our water tech), you will have the information you need to ask the right questions and to understand if you have hard water, high iron, high chlorine, or high/low pH. You’ll understand what issues these can cause to your home or to your health, and what the solutions are as well as the cost, if you decide it’s worth fixing.

What doesn't the free test cover?

We want you to understand now (so you’re not disappointed later) that the free test doesn’t test for all possible contaminants (of which there are hundreds of health concerning contaminants that the EPA doesn’t require water providers to test for, but testing for them all is costly, which is why the EPA doesn’t require it). Don’t worry though, if your concern is something specific, bacteria, Chromium 6, PFAS, etc. we can help you find a cost effective way to remove those and many others. If you are, however, wanting a comprehensive test for them, that will require a sample of water to be sent off to a laboratory with a lab fee. Either way, we will work hard to help you get what you want out of your water. We have the people, resources and tools.

Here’s how to get a free test:

1.  Once you contact us, we find an appointment time that works for you.

2.  Our professional water technician stops by to test a sample of your water and immediately reports the results to you with details and answers to your questions.

3.  If you’d like, the water technician can provide you with options for solving any water issues as well as assess your current plumbing configuration, so you can make an informed decision at your convenience.

You can get things started by sending us your info or giving us a call directly:

Free water test, what’s the catch?

We exist to serve our local community. We are happy to test your water and explain what the results mean, free of charge with no obligations. However, if you do decide to act on the new knowledge of your water test, we hope that you’ll consider us to be your trusted advisor in solving your water problems. You also must be within our service area. Hopefully that doesn’t seem like a catch.

Looking for a more extensive water test?

Comprehensive water tests have to be completed by a laboratory. Depending on the type of testing, you can sometimes pay as much for a water test as you can for equipment to solve the problem. If you are concerned about specific contaminants in your water, ask our expert water technician, and they can give you some cost effective options to consider for your specific concern.

We had a small utility room and being on well water we needed a softener solution. The team built a custom mount on the wall in our limited space. The entire staff has been incredibly helpful and love our Kinetico softener!

This was the best experience! We needed our softener relocated and a new RO system installed and Ron and Mike went out of their way to make it easy and as stress-free as they could! Would recommend for all your water needs.

When we moved into our new house it had a water softener from another company. I called them for almost 6 months before I got a return call. Then they said it would be another 2 months before someone could come out to service it. I found out... about Bridger Water Works from a family member. I called the number, someone actually answered the phone, and they were at my house within 3 days. The owner said that although he could test my water to see what the actual numbers were on contaminants, he felt it would be a conflict of interest since he sells the equipment. He said he recommends having the state testing lab in Helena test our water since they don’t have skin the game and are state certified…I really liked that! We went ahead and had it tested…amazingly there was virtually no arsenic in the samples. The other company had told the previous owners there were significant levels of arsenic in the well and had installed a chlorine tank to the well…that wasn’t needed. We mostly had problems with iron, calcium and a strong sulphur smell. We had Bridger install the equipment they recommended…this was about 3 years ago…waters still fine! On a side note; they use Kinetico equipment which is made in America and this is a huge plus in my world! We just had them install a high capacity RO system for our drinking water and it’s incredible! We never run out of water now…we were daily with our last RO from the other company. Our experience is, they answer the phone, show up when they say they will, are very knowledgeable, the service guys are great, and once you have their equipment, your water troubles are over!read more

Austin came to our home and explained the system and brought information with him that showed us the system. He tested the water and showed us the hardness. We were impressed by Kinetico product. We have had other softener systems that don’t work as... well. The install date was quick and Mike did a great job putting it in and hauling off the old one that had quit working for only a few years. Very professional business and very happy we chose Bridger Water Works! Thank you again!read more

I love the opportunity to share positive experiences and I give Bridger Water Works the highest possible rating. Both Ron and Bob were very professional. We have an older Kinetico system and they were able to find the parts that needed to be... replaced. They took care of everything in two quick visits (my system had two completely unrelated problems).read more

Over the last twenty years I have owned three homes and have had three Kinetico water systems. That should say it all. Why change if all my needs have been met. The new owners of Bridger Water Works have a more hands on approach with personal... service. If I have questions or need salt or RO filters I get a call back the same day and a tech scheduled within the week. I receive a text notification before the tech arrives with a photo attached so I know who is arriving. As a retired Contractor I recommend this company and product without reservation.read more
