Water Testing

If your home's water source is a private well, you should know if the water is safe for your family.


The EPA regulations that protect public drinking water systems do not apply to privately owned wells. As a result, it is up to you to regularly check the quality of your water. The state recommends checking well water once a year for Coliform and E.coli.

The presence of contaminants in water can lead to health issues, including gastrointestinal illness, reproductive problems, and neurological disorders. Infants, young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people whose immune systems are compromised, may be especially susceptible to illness from some contaminants.


At the time of inspection, Gumshoe Property Inspections, LLC can take samples of the drinking water following strict guidelines and submit them to the state for testing.


The laboratory receives water tests Monday thru Thursday. The results for Bacteria are typically provided within 24 to 48 hours. Results for Lead, nitrates, and other substances usually take 7 to 10 days.

The testing package that is recommended by the state is called HUD/Real Estate Package. The package includes testing for Coliform Bacteria, Lead, Nitrate and nitrite.


Let Gumshoe Property Inspections, LLC give you peace of mind and test the well water to ensure that the water coming out of your taps is safe for you and your family.
