Does anyone out there know of water testing kits that are available that could help me avoid the use of a lab? The lab I currently use takes forever to get me results, so I would prefer to do the testing myself so I can get the results to my client in a day or two rather than a week and a half. Thanks.
You can’t do the testing yourself ! How would you test for e coli, coliform, lead,copper etc?
And I’m sure if you had the thousands of dollars of testing equipment FHA or VA wouldn’t except it. Unless you were a certified lab.
The lab I use gets the results back to me in a few days or less.
What lab do you use?
The obvious problem here…or is it? is simply if you send your sample out of state it will take longer to get results. Since a great many of you lack that information (state) in your profile it is hard to help you find a solution for your particular location.
Cindy, check with your state’s Dept of Health and/or your state’s EPA. Both should be able to provide a list of labs. You may have one close that you could even drop off the sample.
