The Penn State Extension has developed a new mobile app to help water system owners and professionals evaluate water quality, according to a release from the university. Specialists with the Extension say it will help users diagnose issues and make better testing decisions.
The app is called H2OSolutions and provides information on test results broken down by Pennsylvania county, contact details for Extension officials and suggested techniques for pinpointing water quality issues.
App designers believe the tool will be most useful to home inspectors, real estate agents or other professionals needing to check for water system problems in the field. The app is available as a free download in the Apple App Store and was developed with funding from the Pennsylvania Sea Grant.
