Water Well Samples

Well Water Samples

We can collect well water samples during the home inspection or as a separate service. These samples are delivered to a private lab for reading. Check with your bank, agent or mortgage underwriter as to what samples will be required.

The following readings are available.

  • Total Coliform
  • E. Coil
  • Fecal Coliform
  • Lead
  • Nitrates
  • Nitrites

If the property you are buying has a water well and you are financing with a FHA VA RD USDA type loan chances are you will need to have the water tested for safe drinking consumption.

We recommend shocking the well prior to pulling a water sample. Contact us for more information.
