Whether you are inspecting a home that is on municipal water or well water, water testing is something that more and more home buyers are looking for as part of their home inspection. With our Home Inspection Water Test Kit, you can easily collect water samples to be tested for common pollutants and contaminants such as lead, heavy metals, chlorine, chemicals, bacteria, and many others. Water testing is a simple way to let your clients know if the water in a home is potable and safe.
No water source is completely free of impurities, many of which are odorless, colorless, and tasteless. It is recommended that private wells be tested at least once a year and some mortgage lenders even require water quality testing for homes with well water. Even municipal water is not without concern. The possibility of contamination increases if the plumbing system is aging or if there is nearby farming, fracking, or other mining.
Our tests can detect lead and heavy metals, chlorine, fluoride, radon, bacteria, and hundreds of other contaminants. Offering water quality testing with certified laboratory results is an often-requested service that takes very little time and does not require additional equipment. Simply use the leak-proof sample containers and the postage-paid package to send the samples to the laboratory for testing. Once the lab testing is finished, you will receive a detailed analysis that you can share with your client.
