The CDC recommends testing any private wells (home wells) at least once per year for the presence of E. Coli or Coliform bacteria that can be leading indicators for other disease-causing pathogens, or more often if there has been a known problem in the past.
Our Microbiology and Bacteria Water Testing Kit comes with the container to collect your water sample, and the materials to use to ship it back to our lab to be analyzed. Emailed results are available usually within 2 days of our receiving your kit.
As always, if you need to have a bacteria or well test done for a home loan or other real estate or regulated purpose, we will need to collect a sample in-person. To schedule these tests, please call our office at (336) 510-7333.
