WATER TESTING

H2O Care can perform water testing for certain items on-site while others must have samples pulled and brought to a certified laboratory, complying with maximum holding periods, temperature, sample sizes, and other protocol.

ON-SITE WATER TESTING

We can perform water testing for certain items on-site with industry standard test kits and get reliable readings right at your home. Based on the results, we can determine whether or not a water filtration or water softening system is necessary to remove the unwanted minerals or contaminants. If so, we can review options with you. The on-site test can be performed for the following:

Hardness > Iron > pH > Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) > Chlorine

WATER TESTING REQUIRING A LABORATORY

For health related contaminants such as Arsenic, Radon, Lead, Bacteria, Nitrates or for more comprehensive testing, we can assist you by properly pulling water samples of the right amounts, including complying with required maximum holding periods, temperature, etc. and bring them to a certified lab.

We have Group 1, Group 2 and Group 3 testing levels (see link just below) or we can customize testing to your needs depending on your specific situation and reason for having your water tested. The contaminants tested for under each of the three Groups are identified in detail at the following link Water-Testing-Sheet-.  Testing water from a private well will require more extensive testing than water coming from a municipal supply which has already undergone a certain level of testing. If you are selling your home with a private well, your town’s Board of Health, the buyer’s home inspector or bank may dictate what must be tested for. We will assist you in determining which Group testing is right for you. Once the lab results become available, we can analyze the report, review it with you and determine if any action is required. If a water filtration or water softening system is required, we can review your options and determine the most effective approach for you.

For more information on when and how often you should pull a water test and related information, see the link at Water Testing link

PULLING YOUR OWN SAMPLES AND BRINGING THEM TO A LAB FOR TESTING

If you’d prefer to take samples and bring them to the lab yourself, we can direct you to the nearest one for instructions, etc. Once you get the results, we can analyze and review them with you.
