Water Testing

We test residential water for various contaminants.

We can do tests for curious or concerned homeowners or buyers, as well as for mortgages and refinances.

We mainly test houses with wells, springs, etc,
but also houses with municipal water (especially if they are concerned about contamination from their pipes).

Our different tests are listed below.

If you are unsure which tests you need or want, please give us a call and our lab staff will be happy to discuss your situation with you.
