Beat this offer and we will match their price!!!

The Strategy:

We initially limit testing to those parameters that are the best indicators of potential problems and use those results to determine if there is any need for further testing.

Fewer tests are less expensive, and the right choice of tests can provide the critical information

Use tests and methods that can provide results rapidly - Many tests can be done on site, all results can be available in 24 hrs

Use the most recent technology to perform tests others do not or cannot perform

Use expertise that others do not have available to perform evaluations of water quality that others cannot perform

Additional tests are done only if it is indicated by other parameters and at your request


Make annual water testing AFFORDABLE and MEANINGFUL for the average person before they get sick. Determine the likelihood of the presence of various toxic and nontoxic compounds in your water sample and whether or not there is a need for further testing.

Note: In our experience few people have any chemical or physical tests done on their water. Even though these (chemicals) are more likely than disease-causing bacteria to cause economic or medical problems. Many never have their water examined for any organisms other than Coliforms despite the fact that many bacteria are often found in private and municipal water supplies. Some people will use disinfectants all over their homes and in the air to protect against bacterial contamination, but will drink whatever comes in through drinking water lines. Consumers are more likely to become ill from undetected chemical contaminants because they do not test for them. Testing for chemical and physical parameters often give important clues to the presence or sources of biological and chemical contaminants. The presence of microscopically observable debris, insect parts, or microorganisms often give clues about other system failures, before consumers become ill.
