SCHEDULE YOUR INSPECTION
Ever wonder what's in your drinking water? Below is a list of some commonly found bacteria in water samples. Have it tested by a professional lab to determine what's lingering in your water.
Most homes in the Myrtle Beach area depend on city water and these homes should have their water tested if they are concerned with the quality of water especially if you are particularly sensitive to water conditions. The quality of water from government municipalities has come into question in recent years.
If your home is on a well, you should have it tested regularly. This is to ensure you have clean, quality water. Testing should be done annually at a minimum for Coliform Bacteria and every other year for Nitrates.
If you are in the process of buying a home, water testing may be required in order for the loan to be processed. This is especially true when it comes to a VA, FHA, HUD, or Rural Development home loans.
Before moving forward, check with your lending institution to see if testing is a requirement. This is becoming a more common request for lenders. Most testing in this case includes Coliform Bacteria and nitrates at the very least.
The inspector will take water samples at the source of the incoming water. Whether you are on well water or city water, we can check. The water samples are then sent of to a laboratory for testing/sampling to discover it's contents. These water sample results are typically received within 5-7 business days after submission of the samples. If bacteria is present, a well treatment is recommended.
