Water Testing

Testing the drinking water is strongly encouraged if you are buying a home with a private well. According to the Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences, there are over 1 million private wells in Pennsylvania and about half of the private water wells that have been tested have at least one water quality problem. I offer water testing for Conventional and FHA/VA loans. I collect water samples and overnight them to an EPA approved lab. A basic drinking water test includes testing for coliform bacteria, E. coli bacteria, pH and total dissolved solids. A well that provides safe drinking water is a must!
