Municipal Drinking Water
Save time and money; reduce non-revenue water; react faster to changes in your water; and get more accurate results for your municipal drinking water throughout the entire treatment process.
solutions are designed to make drinking water analysis better, from plant to lab to field, giving you total confidence in the quality of your water.
overs all the drinking water testing parameters that you use to analyze and treat incoming raw water, filtration, disinfection and the distribution system
Drinking water quality analysis in source water for appropriate pre-treatment
Source water can be vulnerable to accidental or intentional contaminants and weather related or seasonal changes. Monitoring the quality of your incoming source water enables you to anticipate changes to the treatment process that are needed to react to storms, algal blooms, industrial discharge, chemical spills, reservoir stratification/destratification, construction activity, sewage spills and other natural or man-made occurrences.
Protect your budget and reduce operating costs, like electricity, chemicals, and sludge with effective monitoring of organics, and inorganic matter. Maintain the correct dosing for coagulants and respective pH adjustments. Test parameters such as: Total Organic Carbon TOC, TOC analyzer, Carbon analyzer, Bacteria in water, and Heterotrophic bacteria.
Water Testing and Environmental Analysis
Count on us for the tools you need to collect samples for water, wastewater, and soil testing. Find water testing products designed to detect hazardous chemicals or bacteria, monitor air quality, and more, all while saving you time, money, and worry.
Meet and maintain regulatory standards with our water and wastewater testing supplies, soil testing products, and air and gas monitoring devices. Shop benchtop pH meters, thermometers, water testing equipment and instruments, and more to complete your workflow.
Accurate environmental analysis is essential for complying with federal requirements. Wastewater discharge and treatment is regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which also administers the Clean Water Act (CWA) and the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). NPDES issues permits to all wastewater facilities and directs them to protect the environment by establishing monitoring and reporting requirements and specific discharge limits.
To ensure drinking water quality, the EPA also established the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA). The EPA sets the standards and supervises the states, localities, and water suppliers who implement the standards. Most water and wastewater processing and purification takes place at the local level.
Buying or Selling a Home – Recommended Water and Radon Testing Recommendations
WHY TEST BEFORE BUYING OR SELLING A HOME
Preparing to sell a house can be a daunting process. There are a number of simple things the homeowner can do to make sure the process proceeds as smoothly as possible. We recommend the owner perform water and radon air testing prior to listing the home. If they have water treatment equipment that has not been serviced within the past year, it should be serviced before performing any water tests.
WHY TEST PRIOR TO LISTING?
Performing water and radon air testing prior to listing is a good idea because:
Nearly all buyers will direct a home inspector to perform these tests.
Health-related drinking water standards are continually reviewed and changed. A “good” test from ten years ago may not be “good” today.
Well water can change. Road work, a new well on adjacent property and other factors can cause the well water to change.
Identifying problems early means the seller can research solutions carefully and fix them prior to listing or prepare to negotiate with a buyer to resolve the issue.
WATER AND RADON TESTING RECOMMENDATIONS
At a minimum, we recommend a standard mortgage test plus arsenic, uranium, and radon. These are the most often requested tests by a buyer. If the house was built before 1986, you may want to consider performing a first draw lead sample. If you do not perform this test, be sure to be prepared to install a point of use system for lead in the event the buyer asks for this test and the results are high.
PREPARING THE WELL –
One of the most common water tests that fails is the test for bacteria. This failure is caused by organic material in the well. Any organic matter that is allowed to enter the well will cause a bacteria test to fail. Most of the time it is a simple matter of cleaning the well and making sure it stays clean.
DUG WELLS –
Remove the well cover and inspect the well for any organic material like roots, insect nests, spider webs etc. Clean these out of the well. Seal any holes that will allow any reentering of these items. Sanitize the well with bleach. Before any further water testing, use a chlorine test kit to confirm all the chlorine has been flushed from the well water.
Moisture found during a home inspection
There are several ways to test moisture found during a home inspection. First of which is with the use of a simple moisture meter. Most home inspectors have these tools. These home inspectors who do not use these tools should be avoided. A water intrusion specialist located near you can perform specialized tests which will determine whether a leak is active or not.
have signs of moisture within the home, companies like these are a great resource when you are in the home buying process. Consider these individuals to be moisture intrusion testing experts. In addition to providing expert opinion and analysis, they can also provide testing for windows, doors, decks, walls, and roof systems.
Most home inspectors do not possess the ability to determine whether stains found in a building is an active leak or not. Unless, however, its obviously leaking. Most time testing is necessary to confirm stains to be active leaks. Formal testing is a task for a water intrusion specialist. So who can call themselves a water intrusion specialist? Well, there are a bunch of people Try. They are more or less self-proclaimed water testing agencies
Home inspectors by-and-large, are generalists. As generalists, it’s not really their position to confirm or deny the likelihood that a stain or damage is an active leak. Most of these individuals are only certified at their job
You won’t find a home inspector with a state license. Its because they don’t exist. As water intrusion specialists, it’s my opinion that all stains or damage which resembles water intrusion should be ruled out. A company like ours possesses the tools and equipment needed to provide such a service.
