Home Inspection NY

Identifying reasons to test your water

Chemicals migrate into water from old pipes, industry, agriculture, and other sources. Many have no taste, color, or smell. Authorities test at some facilities but they don't know what's coming out of your tap.

Home Inspection NY provides home water testing services with unbiased treatment matching and health risk analysis - so you don't waste money on treatment that doesn't do what you need. Not all of the substances pose an immediate or long term health problem, some impact quality of life only such as appearance, taste, and odor.

The EPA offers guidance on testing for certain contaminants based on symptoms here.

Private Well Water Sampling

Private Water Sampling

The EPA states that Private Well owners are responsible for the safety of their water. The EPA recommends you test your private well annually for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and pH levels. If you suspect the presence of other contaminants, you should test for those also.

More information from the EPA concerning your Private Well Drinking Water can be found here.

Home inspection NY provides sample collection and EPA-approved analysis of your Private Well drinking water.

Public Water Sampling
Radon in Water

Radon in Water Sampling

The presence of radon in homes and commercial buildings is virtually undetectable to the senses. Because you can’t see it, smell it, taste it, touch it, or hear it, the only way to expose unhealthy levels of this hazardous gas is to undergo radon testing. NRPP Certified inspectors will collect samples per AARST standards and provide you with trusted results.

Home Inspection NY does not recommend radon in water testing unless you have received a Radon in Air Sampling result above the EPA action level.

Specific Contaminant Sampling

Home Inspection NY offers a wide array of single-contaminant and multi-contaminant water sampling to meet all of your testing needs. Samples for specific contaminants may be included in our Private Well Water sampling and Public Water Sampling packages so be sure to review the package pricing for potential savings.

Home Inspection NY recommends you review the EPA website found here to learn more about the symptoms associated with potential water contaminants.
