Water Testing

The EPA is responsible for the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations, which are health-related standards that establish the Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCLs). MCLs are the maximum permissible level of a contaminant in water delivered to users of a public water system. MCLs are enforceable under the Safe Drinking Water Act. The maximum levels for some of the most commonly found contaminants are:

Bacteria
Lead
Pesticides (atrazine)
Pesticides (simazine)
Total Nitrate/Nitrite
Nitrite
Total Chlorine
pH
Total Hardness
None
Below 15 ppb (parts per billion)
Below 3 ppb
Below 4 ppb
Below 10.0 ppm (parts per million)
Below 1.0 ppm
Below 4 ppm
6.5 to 8.5
50 ppm or less

AllCheck Inspections offers two different water quality tests, for which your inspector can take water samples for during a complete home inspection.

An on-site water test will provide you with an approximate range of the contaminants in the water supply. The inspector will know the results of the lead, pesticides, nitrates, nitrites, chlorine, pH, and hardness test immediately, while the bacteria test will take 48 hours to show either positive or negative. The results will be emailed to you. The ranges provided by the on-site water test are:

Bacteria
Lead
Pesticides (atrazine)
Pesticides (simazine)
Total Nitrate/Nitrite
Nitrite
Total Chlorine
pH
Total Hardness
positive or negative
positive or negative toxic levels
positive or negative toxic levels
positive or negative toxic levels
0 - 50 ppm
0 - 10 ppm
0 - 10 ppm
6.0 - 10.0
0 - 425 ppm

A laboratory test on your drinking water will measure bacteria (total coliform, E. coli), lead, nitrate, nitrite, total nitrate/nitrite, pH, iron, and turbidity, and will provide an exact measurement of contaminants. The laboratory test takes three to five days to complete and the results will be emailed to you. For more information on private wells, please see Drinking Water.
