Water Testing

It's important to understand the importance of testing and which test may best meet your needs PRIOR to having your water tested. 

Read the articles below which may pertain to your water situation (i.e. well, city or town) and then choose which test is best for you.

Should I have my well water tested?
Should I have my town or city water tested?

 

Prices & Descriptions

ENVIRONMENTAL SCAN $995.00
 

  • Our most thorough look at your water

The test includes total coliform, fecal/e.coli bacteria, lead, nitrate, radon, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, chloride, chlorine, hardness, pH, total dissolved solids, sulfate, ammonia, alkalinity, odor, color, conductivity, sediment, turbidity,zinc, arsenic and 61 volatile organic compounds (including MTBE) as well as standard plate count, fluoride, tannins, 3 herbicides and 19 pesticides including Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCB), the heavy metals antimony, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, mercury, nickel, selenium, silver, thallium; total organic carbons (TOC), methylene blue active substances (MBAS), hydrogen sulfide, o-phosphorus. Test approved use in all 50 states.

 

COMPREHENSIVE PLUS PESTICIDES SCAN $450.00

  • Recommended when Pesticides may be present. Includes everything in the Comprehensive Scan and adds 19 pesticides to the analysis. Perfect for clients near farming areas or who suspect inappropriate use of pesticides in the surrounding neighborhood.

This Scan includes total coliform, fecal/e.coli, calcium, copper, iron, zinc, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, alkalinity, chloride, chlorine, color, conductivity, hardness, nitrate, odor, pH, sediment, total dissolved solids, sulfate, turbidity, arsenic, lead, ammonia, nitrite, radon, 61 volatile organics compounds (including MTBE) aldrin, a-BHC, b-BHC, d-BHC, g-BHC, chlordane, 4,4'-DDD, 4,4'-DDE, 4,4'-DDT, dieldrin, endosulfan l, endosulfan sulfate, endrin, endrin aldehyde, heptachlor, heptachlor epoxide, methoxychlor, toxaphene.

 

HEALTH SCAN $425

  • This test is designed to include all of the parameters we occasionally see in water from private wells
    It would be an extremely unusual circumstance where contamination existed and it was not detected in this testing.
    Included in this test is a complete micro biological analysis which includes the common test for the presences of coliform and e. coli bacteria. Additionally, through the use of a Scanning Electron Microscope, the water sample is analyzed for microbial identification. This means that the lab can tell you if there is any other type of bacteria, fungi, mold or parasites in the water and whether they are health related issues or not. This is a very powerful test and is unique to our testing facility, ETR Labs. This test has helped manys clients get the answers they need to whether or not their water may be hiding harmful microbial contaminants that would have otherwise gone undetected.

    This scan also includes checking for 6 Metals: Arsenic, Copper, Iron, Lead, Manganese and Zinc; 19 inorganic parameters; Alkalinity, Ammonia, Calcium, Chloride, Chlorine, Color, Conductivity, Hardness, Magnesium, Nitrate, Odor, pH, Potassium, Sediment, Sodium, Sulfate, Turbidity, Total Dissolved Solids; Radon, and 61 Volatile Organic Compounds, (VOC's), which are found in many household products, paints, gasoline, petroleum products and industrial solvents. 
    Most significantly, this scan also does a micro-analysis of your water. 

     

     

    COMPREHENSIVE SCAN $375.00
     

  • Recommended for most residential drinking water. Powerful testing for surface water and deep well sources. Tests for 61 volatile organic compounds (including MTBE) as well as the common causes of unhealthy and low quality water. For properly constructed and maintained modern wells where no odor is present in the water, this is the recommended testing. It covers all likely contaminants which would occur in such a well. If you have questions about the quality of the construction and/or maintenance of the well or there is an odor to the water, we recommend you order the Health Scan.

This Scan includes total coliform bacteria, fecal/e. coli bacteria, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, alkalinity, chloride, chlorine, color, conductivity, hardness, nitrate, odor, pH, sediment, total dissolved solids, sulfate, turbidity, arsenic, lead, ammonia, nitrite, radon and 61 volatile organics compounds (including MTBE).

 

STANDARD SCAN $275.00

  • The most popular scan. Tests for common causes of unhealthy water and low water quality. Choose this test if you need a basic scan for some of the more common contaminants found in water. This test covers all known banking requirements including FHA and VA mortgages.

This Scan includes total coliform, fecal/e. coli, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, alkalinity, chloride, chlorine, color, conductivity, hardness, nitrate, odor, pH, sediment, total dissolved solids, sulfate, turbidity, arsenic, lead, ammonia, zinc, and nitrite.
