Water Testing

Clean, fresh water is essential to any living or working environment. By testing your water for coliform bacteria, you can protect your family or office from infection or long-term health effects.

Total coliform bacteria are common in the environment (soil or vegetation) and are generally harmless. If a lab detects only total coliform bacteria in drinking water, the source is probably environmental and fecal contamination is unlikely. However, if environmental contamination can enter the system, pathogens could get in too. It is important to find and resolve the source of the contamination.

Fecal coliform bacteria are a subgroup of total coliform bacteria. They exist in the intestines and feces of people and animals. The presence of fecal coliform in a drinking water sample often indicates recent fecal contamination. That means there is a greater risk that pathogens are present.  Pristine Home Inspections gives you quick, reliable water testing to ensure your water is safe to use and consume. This is the common water test that most banks or real estate transactions require for rural properties that are on well water. Results are returned in as little as 48 hours with no stress or inconvenience.

Find out what is in your drinking water and protect your family. Contact Pristine Inspections & Testing for residential and commercial water testing in the Mount Zion and Maroa, IL areas.

Nitrates and nitrites are nitrogen-oxygen chemical units which combine with various organic and inorganic compounds.  The greatest use of nitrates is as a fertilizer. Once taken into the body, nitrates are converted to nitrites. The major sources of nitrates in drinking water are runoff from fertilizer use; leaking from septic tanks, sewage; and erosion of natural deposits.
