What it tests
This tests for Total Coliforms, E.coli, Anions, Total Metals, and general parameters.
This testing package has a wide-range of uses!
- Private Well – The bacteria in water test is primarily used for annual well tests. However, some well owners should consider upgrading to this test depending on the water quality or known contaminants in the area.
- House water test – This test is perfect for tap sources in homes. It covers the metals associated with pipe corrosion and tests for many other common problems associated with water quality.
- Business routine check – Safety is important to all of us. Our essential drinking water test kit covers the most common water quality issues that could be affecting your business.
- Contractors – Covers a wide range of contaminants and gives clients a “peace of mind” with the number of crucial contaminants tested.
Total Coliforms, E.coli and Fecal Coliforms- Exists naturally in soil, water, and vegetation. Nearby septic systems, sewage discharges, and domestic or wild animal life can promote coliform growth. Most coliform bacteria will not likely cause any illness. However, these bacterias are used as indicators in water tests because their presence shows if disease-causing organisms (pathogens) could also be in the water. E.coli is considered the type of coliform that is the best indicator of fecal contamination with the possibility to carry pathogens. The total coliform bacteria test is a primary indicator of “potability”, or suitability for consumption, of drinking water.
Anions – These compounds include Chloride, Fluoride, Nitrate, Nitrite, and Sulfate. Each of these compounds has different symptoms and effects to our body. If enough organic and inorganic salts enter into the water system, they make the water toxic and poisonous to drink. Provides the Cation-Anion Balance.
Total Metals – This includes: Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Barium, Boron, Cadmium, Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Cyanide, Iron, Lead, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Selenium, Sodium, Uranium, Zinc.
General– This includes Alkalinity, Langelier Index, Conductivity, Total Hardness, pH, Total Dissolvable Solids, Temperature, and Turbidity.
