At Sentry Home Inspection Services we believe that testing the quality of your home’s water supply is a vital important test when it comes to the health and safety of your family.
When you’re in the process of buying a new home, having your water tested is essential. While public water systems are mandated to test and treat their water, these tests only cover the water that has yet to leave the treatment plant.
Once it leaves the public treatment plant, your water will pass through miles of piping, some of which may be in disrepair or contain lead, before it enters your home’s plumbing system. It is estimated that water supplied to almost 10 million homes in America runs through older lead supply pipes at some point in the delivery process. The EPA also states that “homes built before 1986 are more likely to have lead pipes, fixtures, and solder within its plumbing system.” Mortgage lenders also often require water quality testing for properties with private wells.
Sentry Home Inspection Services is equipped with the technology and state of the art tools to ensure the water in your home is high-quality and safe to consume. Whether you are just moving in or you’re already settled and just recognizing that your water has an abnormal odor, color, or taste, our professional team can assist you with confidence.
Our professional water quality testing service assesses a home’s water supply for contaminants and pollutants, such as bacteria, nitrates, heavy metal, arsenic and fluoride. Our test can also reveal an imbalance of the pH level and other factors to ensure that a home’s water is drinkable and safe for everyday use. Our testing methods are approved by the EPA and conforming to the Federal Housing Authority guidelines. Your water will be sampled and submitted to a state licensed and approved lab for testing. When the results come back you will receive a report of the findings.
Once completed, you are given a full report that includes all testing results as well as a summary that clearly reviews our findings as well as making suggestions for improving your home’s energy efficiency. Let us take the guesswork and stress out of having a comprehensive water quality inspection done and let us help you to make prioritized decisions on improving your home’s water supply.
