Water Testing

Water is the universal solvent, and it has the capability of dissolving just about anything. Because of it's unique properties, water can easily become contaminated. Serious contaminates such as lead and E. Coli bacteria may be toxins that could affect your family’s health. 

    When doing a water test, there are four major testing categories:
  • Inorganic — minerals and physical properties
  • Organic — petroleum products, gasoline, fuel oil and solvents
  • Microbiology — coliform and other bacteria
  • Radiology — radon gas options

1. Standard Test includes Microbiology and Inorganic.
2. Comprehensive Test includes all four testing categories: inorganic, organic, microbiology, and radon. The comprehensive test is good way to start. It is a powerful tool in detecting contaminants commonly found in surface and deep well waters.
3. If you are suspicious of pesticides or herbicides, the Comprehensive Plus Pesticides test is recommended.
