Testing well water
If the home you are purchasing has its water supplied by a private well, you should have this tested. (Municipal and community well systems test the water they supply regularly. In this case, we will not routinely advise testing – but it can be done if desired). Make sure that you test for bacteria, arsenic, and naturally occurring minerals that can affect the taste or quality of the water.
Note: if you are getting a VA or FHA mortgage they require specific water tests (that we can do).
