Should I get Testing?

It’s hard to know if you need testing. One thing is for sure; a test on your water wouldn’t hurt!

Why might my water not be safe?

Your water may taste and look great, however, there can be many harmful substances that you don’t see, taste, or smell, such as bacteria and chemicals, that could affect your health.

For example, local farming and industrial activities can leech into your soil and contaminate the private water source you drink from.

How Much Does It Cost for Water Testing?

The cost of testing your water is determined by the testing package you require, it can range from a very basic coliform test to a comprehensive drinking water package.  Our most popular kit by far is our Essential Drinking Water Test Kit, which covers everything in the Canadian Drinking Water Guidelines and only costs $324.

How Do I Order a Water Testing Kit?

Water test kits are easy to order online, they come with the sampling procedure and a pre-paid shipping label to return the completed water test kit back to the lab.
