Well Water Testing
Water quality and good tasting water is a concern of most home owners. People want to make sure the water they are drinking is safe for consumption. Many contaminants contribute to poor water quality. Sometimes, the source of contamination is simply a natural occurrence in the environment. Rocks containing contaminants such as radon, nitrates, arsenic, and lead can contribute to unsafe levels in the water and can only be identified through a water test. Other times, the source may be man-made, such as a failed septic tank, waste from households or industry, or pesticides. There are many contaminates that can be tested in your drinking water. Big Moose has contracted with certified state laboratories to provide for any type of test that you may need. We offer a wide range of water tests. For most real estate transactions water testing is ordered for, but not limited to, the following tests.
- Bacteria – Total Coliform and E-coli – $75
- Nitrate & Nitrite – $65
- Lead – $75
- Arsenic – $75
- Radon – $125
- Partial Chemical – $125
- Stand-alone water test fee – $50
- Express mailing of water samples – $20
Bacteria is our basic water test and is included for free with every well inspection we perform. If stand-alone water testing is needed without a well inspection then a $50 service fee is added. Due to time restraints on getting the water samples to the lab a $20 express shipping fee may be added to the order.
