When you really want to know the quality of your water in your home, trust Duncan Home Inspection Services to take your water sample and submit it to a State certified lab.
If your home has a privately owned well, unlike public water systems, it is up to you to make sure that your water quality is safe. Not only health issues, but other problems such as taste, color, odor and staining of clothes or fixtures, and corrosion to plumbing and fixtures can occur if there are water quality problems. Water testing allows you to properly address the specific problems of your water supply. This will help ensure that the water source is being properly protected from potential contamination, your distribution pipes, fixtures, and clothes are being protected from staining and deterioration, and that an appropriate treatment is selected.
General Water Scan is a scan that will give a broad picture of the quality of your water. It includes testing for Nitrite, Nitrate, Lead, Iron, Copper, & Hardness.
Water Testing for E. coli and Total Coliform only tests the presence of Total Coliform and E. coli.
Radon Water Scan: Just as Radon gas in the air can pose health risks, so too can radon in your water supply. If you have a private well, it is typically recommended that you test your water for Radon when an air test for Radon reveals high levels of Radon in the home, and when the home is located in an area of moderate to high susceptibility to elevated Radon in water. Based on geology and radon-in-water data collected to date, Asheville, Hendersonville, Brevard, & Rutherfordton, NC and Travelers Rest, Greenville, Landrum, and Spartanburg, SC are areas of moderate to high susceptibility.
