Water Testing

New York State & Pennsylvania


We do water testing for real estate closings for the buyer or seller. We send samples to a NY State lab for analysis and report to you and your attorney.

Health Concerns

The question of whether or not to have your water tested is a serious one that concerns the health of you and your family. The National Ground Water Association (NGWA) recommends well owners test their water at least annually for bacteria, nitrates, and any contaminants of local concern. In addition to illness, a variety of less serious problems such as taste, color, odor and staining of clothes or fixtures are symptoms of water quality problems. But not everyone needs water tests and it is impractical and unnecessary to test for all possible contaminants.

Water Testing in the Southern Tier

If water analysis indicates bacteria problems, the first step is to try to locate the source of your problem. Most bacterial problems are a result of surface water getting into your water system, we would rather fix this then just treat it. Sometimes we can not locate the problem, then we must treat it with a ultraviolet light or chlorination system.

If water analysis indicates other problems, the next step is to determine what type of system you need to treat the water. Most well water conditions are easily treated, so please call us, you don't have to just live with it.
