Standard Water Analysis
The Standard analysis package includes a 32-point analysis of your water sample to provide you with information about its suitability for drinking, domestic use, and irrigation. It helps you determine whether water treatment is needed, and what kind of treatment would be effective. Recommended annually for all private well owners or others contemplating a water treatment system.
(Formerly the "well-test package.")
The package includes tests for:
total bacteria (HPC), coliform bacteria (presence/absence)
pH, conductivity, hardness, total dissolved solids, turbidity, corrosivity index, sodium adsorption ratio
Anions: chloride, fluoride, bromide, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate, sulfate, carbonate and chlorate
Cations: sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, ammonia, and strontium
Trace metals: iron (ferric), iron (ferrous), manganese, copper, zinc, cobalt, nickel and cadmium.
OPTIONAL ($25 each) Arsenic, Lead.
Upon receipt of your order, we send to you a package with sample bottles, instructions, and return labels. You fill the sample bottles and return them to us. After we receive your samples, we send you a report of the test results in about one week. (We cannot usually guarantee exact turnaround times)
Reports are sent by email and a printed copy is mailed to you. The report shows you the concentration of each component and how your water compares to recommended water quality standards. See our web site for help with interpreting the results.
Ships in a re-usable foam cooler with a cold pack.
(For best results, return by priority or express mail.)
