Free Home & Well Water Testing in Certain Areas of Central Minnesota & South Metro Area

Know what’s in your water immediately with fast & accurate results with our free basic water test – see if you qualify!

Tri County Water Conditioning offers free basic water testing with fast, accurate results in most local areas. Enter your zip code to see if you qualify for free water testing!

We will perform a basic test on your water to determine your Total Dissolved Solids, Hardness, Iron, and Chlorine content and present you with a professional analysis of the results.

A full lab analysis is available for most other contaminants at an affordable price. Some testing above and beyond the free tests we offer would require one of our water specialists to draw water at your home. Please contact us for more information. 

Common water contaminants in Central Minnesota & South Metro Area

 

Hardness Minerals
What it is – hard water contains calcium and magnesium minerals which bond with everything they touch leaving “limescale” in their wake.Treatment – Our guaranteed water softener provides the best option for soft water on the market. It improves the water throughout your entire home while protecting your appliances and fixtures.
Iron
What it is – Iron can come in a couple different forms including dissolved and non-dissolved. Both of which can leave red/orange stains on your sinks, tubs, and toilets and can be extremely hard to remove. Iron can also cause bacteria to grow and let off an unpleasant smell.Treatment – The EcoWater ECR 3502 is rated to remove up to 15 ppm of clear water iron. In most cases, our equipment can remove triple the iron compared to competitive brands. Should your water run red out of the faucet, an ETF AII9 Air Injection filter ahead of your water softener will usually fix the problem. In severe cases, a separate iron filter may be needed.
Chlorine
What it is – Chlorine is a chemical used by municipal & local water treatment plants to reduce harmful bacteria in the water supply. While this sounds good, chlorine and chloramines can cause a bacteria of their own to grow called trihalomethanes (TTHM) which is quite unsafe to drink or bathe in.Treatment – The most efficient Chlorine reduction filter is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or Catalytic Carbon. Due to the high level of chlorine added to water by cities, you will really appreciate your water with chlorine reduction. See our Whole House Filtration page for more information.
Chromium 6

A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that MN drinking water contains hexavalent chromium, a toxic metal that has been linked to cancer. While the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not require the testing for the metal, the survey found that levels in MN water in some areas were pushing the levels proposed as a safety limit by authorities. This contaminant has been proven to cause cancer. You can search your zip code to see the amount in your municipal water supply here: https://www.ewg.org/interactive-maps/2016-chromium6-lower-48.php#.WXYljtPyu-l 

Dirt & Sediment
What it is – dirt & sediment is just as it sounds. This is typically most common in well water or surface water that hasn’t gone through a treatment facility.Treatment – Dirt and sediment are found in almost all water supplies and will decrease the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances. For example, sediment in a water heater can prevent the heat from transferring to the water in the tank once sediment has built up in the bottom. Our whole house filtration system can help with this problem.
PFAS

Water all over the country has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS, and our area is not exempt. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

Eighteen million Americans live in communities where the water systems are in violation of the law. As a mater of fact, the federal agency in charge of making sure those systems are safe not only know these issues exist, they’ve done little to stop them, according to information provided by CNN, which cites multiple sources and water experts. Check out the EWG’s PFAS contamination map, to see if it is has been found in your area.

Our goal is not to scare anyone into getting water treatment, however, educating our local community about water quality is a top priority. We’ve worked with many local families to improve their water and to provide peace-of-mind, knowing the water they drink and bathe in is free of harmful contaminants.

Contact us today to learn more about our professionally installed and serviced drinking water system that reduces PFOS contamination. Fill out the contact form or give us a call.

Other Contaminants
What they are – common contaminants in our area can include nitrates, lead, arsenic, pharmaceuticals, and more. These are not included in the free water test, however, we do offer full laboratory testing at an affordable price.Treatment – Protecting the water in your home is important, however ensuring the purity of the water you are putting in your body is even more crucial. Our Reverse Osmosis drinking water system will give you a peace of mind that your drinking water is healthy, and you are going to fall in love with this drinking water system that can provide up to 50 gallons per day of delicious water.

Fabulous Job, Works Great! Rating - 5 Stars

 

My 75 gallon water heater went kaput and I reached out to Tri-County Water to replace (I found their services through Costco).  They were able to do the job within 2 days. The Team (Nick and Andy) arrived early for the appointment to replace and did a fabulous job.  They were done within an hour and half and it works great.  They cleaned up after themselves and hauled my old water heater away.  I would definitely use their services again!

Rating - 5 stars

Thanks for your quick service and response in my hour of need.

Have always been super happy with Tri County Water and the... wonderful service they provide. Recently installed their air scrubber on our furnace and we are thrilled. There is a level of comfort knowing that the air being circulated in our house has gone through the filter and the light and is fresh and clean. Especially with recent viruses and everyday bacteria its nice to know it helps stop the spread That in and of itself is worth it.read more

After 6 months of my water softener not working I called... Tri County Water Conditioning thinking I needed a new one. Instead of giving me a heavy sell, their representative Bill said, “Why don’t we just take a look first”. Chris, our Tech, was so professional and accommodating. He set a time that was convenient for me, arriving on time and called when he pulled in the driveway as not to disturb any sleeping children. After a short time with my softener he diagnosed the issue, replaced a part and had it working again. . . for about a tenth the cost I expected. I’ve met my new water company and I encourage you to call and give them a chance to earn your business too. Thanks Bill and Chris!read more

My water softener is 15 years old and I just want to see if... it was working properly. I brought a sample of my water to Tri County to be tested. Within minutes they told me my water was perfect. I added that there was some water leaking around my water softener. They said they would come right over and take a look at it. They gave me some ideas on why the water was there and it didn’t have anything to do with the water softener. They didn’t even charge me anything and did not try to sell me anything. These guys are great. I will use them when I do need to replace my water softener.read more

Our water softener failed to work and the plumber said the... water softener needs to be replaced it doesn't worth it to fix the issue. I started to shop around the different companies in all either too expensive lacking lots of features I am looking for from softener. I finally found the Tri-County Water Conditioning company through Costco. Melissa Zappe the salesperson who came to our house she educated me about hard water, chlorine, other water contaminants etc how it impacts our health and how we can make all houses with hard water, chlorine-free, and other water contaminants. She showed me all the different kinds of water softeners available for me to choose from. She didn't try to pursue me or presser me to decide. I finally decided to get ERR3702R30 model made by EcoWater the best water softener ever I owned. It has been 4 days since installed we are enjoying what the water softener doing for us. Enjoy shower and cloth lot cleaner than before etc.. The install was perfect Mark is excellent and he is professional and explained to me how to maintain the water softener myself every year. The other company even told me they will not take the old softener, but Tri-County Water Conditioning company did take the old softener with them. Also, Melissa will be coming back in 15 days to test our water again which is included in the deal. I recommend Tri-County Water Conditioning for a water softener or other services they may provide. Thank you!read more

I connected with Tri County Water Conditioning through... Costco as they were the EcoWater dealer in my area. I ended up getting a ERO 385 system that's installed downstairs in my utility room. They ran a water line to my refrigerator water dispenser and to my kitchen sink with a nicely matched EcoWater faucet next to my kitchen faucet (both brushed nickel). I love that we didn't need to install it below our kitchen sink with the filters and water tank taking all that space. The sales rep, Melissa, was great to work with. Not only was she able identify if our setup would work, but also pointed out some plumbing improvements we could do. We ended up adding plumbing work in addition with the RO system. The master plumber, Nick, added a cool looking dual hot/cold frost proof water faucet outside our house so we can fill up kiddie pools with nice warm water. Overall, the install of the new faucets and RO system was clean and I'm very happy with the result. Thank you!read more

She explained in detail and based on my specific requirements, She consulted internally and sent their Master plumber for identifying the possibilities (instead of false promising me, thats a good gesture for sales personnel)Master plumber came for inspection and gave the possibilities.On the installation day, Nick & Andy , are our installers. They were very professional, if i can call it as "White Glove Delivery" for appliances/furniture, thats what they did for installation.
