FAQs

If you pick up a do-it-yourself soil test kit at your local hardware store, you will probably be able to find out about the pH of your soil as well as the presence of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. If you want a fully healthy yard for your children or a place to grow nutritious food for your family, you need a more accurate test. The soil tests available from ETR Laboratories can tell you about pesticides, herbicides, PCBs, volatile organic compounds or heavy metals. With ETR Laboratories, you have access to a state-of-the-art laboratory with a 25-year history of providing precise test results. Order the soil tests you need from our list of additional tests and products.  

A test you pick up in a hardware store will never be as accurate as a test performed in a professional laboratory. Also, test kits are normally far more limited and less precise than our tests. When you really need to know about the possible contamination of a site for a garden, lawn or home, you need the precision of a fully certified laboratory. ETR Laboratories has been providing professional-grade test results to homeowners, realtors, scientists, mortgage lenders and well drillers for more than two decades. We are dedicated to the accuracy of our tests. To choose the right tests for your situation, please contact us or select from this list.

The price depends on which soil test you need. An accurate test of your soil’s pH costs as little as $70. Testing for a variety of pesticides costs $200 and scanning your soil sample for 13 heavy metals will cost $300. The value of these tests can be immeasurable. If you will grow crops in this soil or if your children will be playing for years on lawns planted on this soil, you need to know exactly what contaminants are present. We have several soil tests available here, but we also invite you to contact us to learn more about the right tests for your situation.
