We offer water testing services to ensure the water provided in your home or business is safe to use. Testing your water yearly is very important because water conditions frequently change and can cause long-term illnesses to those drinking and bathing in the water. Frequently, our water testing services are used to determine what is in homeowners’ water systems and if a treatment is necessary.
The two types of water testing services we offer are bacteria testing and well water testing. Our bacteria testing services guarantee results within 72 hours and well water testing results within 4-6 business days.

MUST KNOW advice if your water comes from a well:
- If your water passed testing when you moved in, you must get it checked again. Well water changes over time.
- Just because no one has gotten sick, does not mean your water is safe. Bacterial illnesses develop over time and can be dangerous for you and your family.
- Test your water YEARLY.
- Even though your well water doesn’t smell, harmful contaminants could still be present.

Septic Tank Inspection
How is a septic inspection done?
There are two types of septic inspections.
When buying or selling a house, the home inspector will usually complete a visual inspection.
A visual inspection involves asking a few questions, such as how old the house is, how often the owner pumps the septic system, and when the last inspection was. The inspector will then flush all the toilets and run all the water in the house to make sure the water pressure is up to par and everything is draining properly. Finally, the inspector will go out to the drain field to make sure there is no standing water, which can indicate a cesspool.
A visual inspection is helpful and quick, but a full inspection can really tell you the real story behind the health of the septic system.
A full inspection includes everything a visual inspection includes, but it also goes the extra mile. This inspection is the one you’ll want to get done every three to five years.
In a full inspection, inspectors will remove the cover to the septic tank and check the water level. The water level can or show whether the water is draining properly. The inspector will then run water in the house to make sure it is properly flowing from the house to the septic tank, and to make sure the water level within the tank does not rise when they introduce more water.
The inspector may use a dye test during this part of their inspection. In a dye test, the inspector will introduce dye into the water that is being drained to see how much of it enters the septic tank.
From there, the septic tank will get pumped and the inspector will check for any backflow from the absorption area. The backflow level tells the inspector if there is a problem with your drain field. The flow level is then checked again to make sure every aspect of the septic system is in working order and there are no blockages.
