Water Testing Greater St. Louis

Why You Should Test

Private Well

If your home is on a well, you should have it tested regularly. 

This is to ensure you have clean, quality water. 

Testing should be done annually at a minimum for Coliform Bacteria and every other year for Nitrates.

Purchasing a Home

If you are in the process of buying a home, water testing my be required in order for the loan to be processed. 

This is especially true when it comes to a VA,FHA,HUD, or Rural Development home loans.

Before moving forward, check with your lending institution to see if testing is a requirement. 

This is becoming a more common request for lenders. 

Most testing in this case includes Coliform Bacteria and nitrates at the very least.

How We Water Test

The state-licensed inspector through the state of Missouri will take water samples at the source of the incoming water. 

The water samples are then sent of to a laboratory for testing/sampling to discover it’s contents. These water sample results are typically received within 1-2 business days after submission of the samples. 

If bacteria is present, a well treatment is recommended.
