Free Home & Well Water Testing in Certain Areas of Western Missouri

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

EcoWater of Kansas City 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, and Chlorine content and present you with a professional analysis of the results.

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.

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.

Smelly Water (Hydrogen Sulfide or Iron Bacteria)

There are typically two water contaminants that can cause your water to smell like sulfur or rotten eggs, one is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and the other is iron or sulfates.

 H2S is a mineral that is released from the earth and finds its way into groundwater. It’s especially common in well water located near shale, sandstone, coal, peat, or oil.

 Occasionally, a rotten-egg smell in your water could also be caused by a water heater or by sewage pollution in your water. If you’re on city water, the most likely explanation is your water heater.

 The most important thing to note is that it is ALWAYS worthwhile to get your water tested as H2S poses a serious potential health risk including nausea, vomiting, and other serious health effects.

PFAS, Lead, & Cyst

Water in our area has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

The chemicals Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), also known as C8, and Perfluorooctane Sulfonic acid (PFOS) are bio-permanent, resistant to direct oxidation, and do not break down naturally in the environment or the human body. Studies suggest that exposure to these chemicals may lead to cancer.

Chromium 6

A new study by the Environmental Working Group reports that local 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 our local water 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

Arsenic

Arsenic is a common water issue in Kansas, however, it can be easily and affordably removed with an under-sink filter from EcoWater of Kansas City.

According to the CDC, “Arsenic can enter the water supply from natural deposits in the earth or from industrial and agricultural pollution. It is widely believed that naturally occurring arsenic dissolves out of certain rock formations when ground water levels drop significantly. Some industries in the United States release thousands of pounds of arsenic into the environment every year. Once released, arsenic remains in the environment for a long time. Arsenic is removed from the air by rain, snow, and gradual settling. Once on the ground or in surface water, arsenic can slowly enter groundwater. High arsenic levels in private wells may come from certain arsenic-containing fertilizers used in the past or industrial waste. It may also indicate improper well construction or overuse of chemical fertilizers or herbicides in the past.”

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.

We are definitely a repeat customer for EcoWater. After moving to a different location and already having had a water softener system by EcoWater, we chose to go with them again. They have great products and wouldn't even consider anyone else. Hank knows what he's talking about.

Spencer came by and demonstrated the effects of having soft water in the home. He was well prepared, knowledgeable, and personable. We believed in what he was selling & ordered a water softener. I bought a softener online about 5 years ago & I'd say that for the last year I don't believe it was working much at all. Company was out of Arizona I believe, so no technicians around here. This should fix the problem for a long time to come!

We had Monica come out and do the water demo for us and dang, our water is gross! We just moved here and have noticed the need for softer water, but didn’t really think about our water’s cleanliness for drinking because we have a filter on the fridge. The filter on the fridge is basically doing nothing for our drinking water! 😬 Monica was awesome 👏🏻 Our dog approved of the demo as well! Haha We are getting everything installed on Tuesday and we are very excited!

Hank is the representative that responded to my request for pricing quotes through Costco.I specifically requested no water testing as we had been through that process prior. I just wanted the bottom line. He was more than helpful and not pushy or high pressured. Which I very much appreciated.Was prompt keeping both appointments.Kept me informed about installation date and time.

Recently purchased the water refiner and RO system for our home, the system is excellent and we already are enjoying the change from unrefined water (dishwashing, showering, laundry, it just tastes better).Steve S was our salesman who gave the presentation, and he was very kind, no high pressure salespitch at all from Steve; he interacted well with our kids, he gave us time to think it over, and overall was excellent, highly recommend.Our installer (Mike Z) was also excellent, went well out of the way to make sure it was installed and functioning the way we wanted it, though he could have cut corners to make it easier for him.Quite happy all around, and recommended.

Spencer gave an incredible presentation! How disgusting is our tap water!?! 🤢 We really liked the banter with him as well and the great explanation of the value in the system. While we may not be ready for a system right now, Spencer definitely showed us how we could be ready if we really believed in ourselves....but we are pessimistic about our own budget and could not see past the ends of our nose when it comes to product replacement and savings. Keep up the great work, and definitely keep working on this lead Spence, we’ll be ready someday! Good luck to you my friend! 🤘🏻

I have got to admit this whole covid thing has put a damper on things but we had Monica come out and tell us everything about EcoWater and as a Family of 6 with 4 children we did not realize how nasty our water was! But thankfully they had a amazing person come to us and it has made our lives so much better! We also got the Air purifier too and the air feels so much lighter when we walk in the house. And another great thing our service Technician that came out Tyler he was so cool, explained everything and gave us his personal number if we had any questions! If i could give more than 5 stars i would! AMAZING people! Thank you Monica and Tyler!!!!

We’ve only had our system for 2 hours and I love it already! My first load of laundry since we moved here is clean!! Monica Lowry was our sales rep and it was the most enjoyable in home demonstration we’ve ever had. We live between Topeka and Manhattan. Our water was gross!!! Major sediment at the bottom and throughout the tube. Everything I had was coated with a white film. This is so worth it. Thank you Monica!

We had complains of hard water scaling across the plumbing lines, showers, faucets etc. Hank Oades was our sales rep, and he thoroughly explained to us how EcoWater was different and demonstrated very effectively how the new system would benefit us. He took time to answer all my follow up text messages to clarify all pros and cons of the system. The system was installed in two days, quickly and efficiently. The installer guy Tyler was also extremely friendly and courteous and knowledgeable. He explained us all the connection changes and demonstrated how the system will work. Water quality from the tap tastes amazing. No more bottled water in our house. I highly recommend this system to everyone who care about their family's health.

Our salesman Spencer Wilson was a polite and super chill guy. He was very knowledgeable and informative in the product he was pitching and made very good arguments about why having the ERO was a no brainer buy, can’t wait for them to install it. Overall I give the guy a 12/10 also because he had a cat allergy but came in a did his thing like a trooper!
