Water Testing

Why have your water tested?

If your future house has a private water supply, you should consider having the water tested. The CDC recommends testing well water every year, so it is prudent to have it tested prior to moving in. This will give you time to have any water quality issues remedied before you need to rely on that water source. You may also wish to have house water from a public supply tested if you are concerned about the plumbing or contaminants in or near the house.

Our water testing service

We provide water testing services as a separate add-on service with our home inspections. Typically we will test for total coliform bacteria and E. coli, but can also perform a number of other tests (pH, nitrates, total dissolved solids, etc) if desired. Please note that we send the samples collected to a laboratory and as such, it usually takes about 2 weeks to receive the results.
