Water Testing

water testing.png

There are numerous ways that even a public water supply can be or become unsafe...

A break in a public waterline may introduce bacteria, public officials may not keep water quality up to standards, a failing outdoor spigot allows ecoli or uranium into supply line, etc.

We have a basic water test that is performed with a 24 hour turnaround time to give you peace of mind. Tests include lead, bacteria, nitrates, copper, pesticides, copper, iron, and more.

For more comprehensive testing, expect 3-5 days for results to come back.

At United Home Inspection Group you'll receive a FREE Snapshot of your local water supply.

If there are concerns, we can do a more in-depth water test.

CONTAMINANTS PER LOCAL WATER DISTRICT.png

Well Water is Subject to Environmental Surroundings

You should have your well tested once a year for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and pH levels. If you suspect other contaminants, you should test for those as well.

Because nearby property runoff seeps into the ground, it is possible to have a contaminated well from a neighbor's actions which you may never know about.

City and County Water Systems

Not all public water supplies are safe. Most public drinking water treatment plants only adhere to the absolute minimum requirements, sometimes having no standards at all for certain contaminants. When public water does not test in the safe parameters, more often than not, there is no protocol for notifying customers. 

There are a number of particulates, bacteria, heavy metals, and pesticides that are never tested by a public water supply. Some of these offenders stay in the body for a lifetime and cause long-term damage.
