About Water

Water Testing

Sometimes people complain that the water is turning their bath blue – a sign of water with too high acidity. Or it may be turning the bath brown, a sign of iron deposits.

Before selling you anything, About Water will recommend a laboratory for testing and we will get a comprehensive report on the problem. This means customers are not wasting their money on hit-or-miss cures. A scientific diagnosis is made so the right filtration system can be installed. Specialising in lifestyle blocks for untreated water, iron acidity and coliform.

Rob Mason of About Water is a professional who is dedicated to providing all his customers with the purist water possible.
