Water Testing

By Envornmental Testing Labs

Site specific testing can help determine existing water quality conditions which is critical in designing whole home or counter-top water filtration system solutions.

ETR labs located in Massachusetts provides accurate testing, competitive pricing and quick return times for the testing results. Typically, results can be obtained within 7-14 days of receiving the samples depending upon the level of testing services requested.

Well Disinfection Kit (process is EPA recommended)

This kit is designed to disinfect shallow and drilled wells effectively, efficiently and safely by utilizing this well disinfecting / monitoring system kit. The beauty of this well disinfection kit is that you can still use your water while disinfecting. Test includes: This kit contains all the necessary information and reagents needed to perform a single well disinfection. The kit is divided into 3 main parts: Well disinfecting agent (this process is EPA recommended), Monitoring of well disinfecting level and a post well treatment bacteria test (free inside kit, $80.00 if purchased separately) to be used after the well disinfection process.

Standard Water Scan

Tests for common causes of unhealthy water and low water quality. Choose this test if you need a basic scan for some of the more common contaminants found in water. This test covers all known banking requirements including FHA and VA mortgages. Test includes: total coliform bacteria, fecal/e. coli, lead plus: sodium, potassium, copper, iron, manganese, magnesium, calcium, arsenic, ph, turbidity, color, odor, conductivity, total dissolved solids (tds), sediment, alkalinity, chlorine, chloride, hardness, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, sulfate.

Comprehensive Water Scan

Powerful testing for surface water and deep well sources. Tests for 61 volatile organic compounds (including MTBE) as well as the common causes of unhealthy and low quality water. This is the best test for determining general water quality. Test includes: total coliform bacteria, lead, nitrate, nitrite, radon, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, chloride, chlorine, color, hardness, ph, total dissolved solids, sulfate, ammonia plus: fecal/e. coli, alkalinity, odor, conductivity, sediment, turbidity, arsenic and 61 volatile organic compounds.

Health Water Scan

Checks for the most common health risks. Opt for this test to find out if your drinking water contains common health-related contaminants. Test includes: total coliform bacteria, lead, nitrate, nitrite, radon, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, chloride, chlorine, color, hardness, ph, total dissolved solids, sulfate, ammonia plus: fecal/e. coli, alkalinity, odor, conductivity, sediment, turbidity, arsenic and 61 volatile organic compounds. Identification of microorganisms to the genus and species level.

Comprehensive Plus Pesticides Water Scan

Includes everything in the Comprehensive Scan and adds 17 pesticides to the analysis. Perfect for clients near farming areas or who suspect inappropriate use of pesticides in the surrounding neighborhood. Test includes: total coliform, fecal/e. coli, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, alkalinity, chloride, chlorine, color, conductivity, hardness, nitrate, nitrite, odor, ph, sediment, total dissolved solids, sulfate, turbidity, arsenic, lead, ammonia, radon, 61 volatile organics compounds (including mtbe) plus the following pesticides: aldrin, a-bhc, b-bhc, d-bhc, g-bhc, chlordane, 4,4'-ddd, 4,4'-dde, 4,4'-ddt, dieldrin, endosulfan i, endosulfan sulfate, endrin, endrin aldehyde, heptachlor, heptachlor epoxide, methoxychlor, toxaphene.

Environmental Water Scan

A very inclusive test. Consider this test if you're concerned about industrial / agricultural pollution from either a nearby industry or a landfill or dump. Unauthorized dumping anytime in the past can pollute your water. Test includes: total coliform, fecal/e. coli bacteria, lead, nitrate, nitrite, radon, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, chloride, chlorine, color, hardness, ph, total dissolved solids, sulfate, ammonia, alkalinity, odor, conductivity, sediment, turbidity, arsenic and 61 volatile organic compounds (including mtbe) as well as a standard plate count (spc), fluoride, tannins, 3 herbicides and 19 pesticides including pcb's, the heavy metals antimony, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, mercury, nickel, selenium, silver, thallium and zinc, as well as total petroleum hydrocarbons (tph), methylene blue active substances (mbas), hydrogen sulfide, o-phosphorus and t-phosphorus.

Advanced Environmental Health Water Scan

Our most inclusive test. This is one of the most thorough scans available today. The scan includes a microanalysis and analysis for semi-volatile organic compounds. Consider this test if you're concerned about industrial / agricultural pollution from either a nearby industry or a landfill or dump. Unauthorized dumping anytime in the past can pollute your water.

Water Test Includes:

Total coliform, fecal/e. coli bacteria, lead, nitrate, nitrite, radon, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, chloride, chlorine, color, hardness, ph, total dissolved solids, sulfate, ammonia, alkalinity, odor, conductivity, sediment, turbidity, arsenic and 61 volatile organic compounds (including mtbe) as well as a standard plate count (spc), fluoride, tannins, 3 herbicides and 19 pesticides including pcb's, the heavy metals antimony, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, mercury, nickel, selenium, silver, thallium and zinc, as well as total petroleum hydrocarbons (tph), methylene blue active substances (mbas), hydrogen sulfide, o-phosphorus and t-phosphorus.
