Every one of the more than one hundred tests we offer is completed in our own state-of-the-art facility. Many other testing companies send their tests to us for analysis. By working directly with us, you get the fastest results possible.

Absolutely. This is a vital test to be completed before closing. If there is any problem with the water quality, some VA and FHA lenders will not approve the sale. A VA loan is a $0 down mortgage option available to veterans, active service members and some military spouses. FHA loans are those insured by the Federal Housing Administration. Both agencies have specific requirements on the suitability of the home to be purchased, including ensuring that well water meets local health requirements for safe drinking water. If you are the buyer, you want to know that you are buying a home with a healthy water supply. If you are the seller, you can eliminate any barriers to the buyer completing their mortgage application and the closing with a professional water test. ETR Laboratories makes the three most popular types of well water tests easy to choose from. Select from the Basic Water Test, the Premium Water Test, or the top-of-the-line Ultimate Water Test that checks for 249 different contaminants.

Not at all. Well water is very often clean and healthy. But it is important to know its quality before the sale of a home is finalized. You can quickly ensure the quality of well water provided to a house you are planning to buy with our Basic Water Test, Premium Water Test or the Ultimate Water Test. All you need to do is collect a sample of well water according to the instructions we send you and mail them off in the prepaid package we provide. We will have the results back to you quickly and we offer a complimentary phone consultation so you know what action to take based on those results. Contact us to learn more or get help choosing the best test for your situation.
