Well Water testing

I am fairly new in home inspection and have had some requests for water testing. I have in the past referred the agent to county water testing. Can I take samples myself or do I need a certification. Where would I send samples.

Depends. What’s your location?

Robert we take a sample and send it to a lab in oak ridge TN

Wayne, Do you order sampling supplies from the lab. Is there a set sampling procedure.

yes we get the sample bottle , run the water for 10 minutes , take the sample fill out the form send it in.

Email Joe Farsetta. He has written a course, available on CD, for well inspection and water sampling. It tells you all you need to know.

Thanks everyone for your help.

Interesting, as you didn’t bother to respond to the relevent question asked in post #2, and furthermore, you didn’t get a reply to your original question in post#1.

Good luck to you in the future. :stuck_out_tongue:
