Water Quality Tests Combined with our Home Inspections

Care to know what you’re drinking

(or will be drinking)? The award-winning Tap Score test reports on 40+ contaminants and properties within your water

Some reasons to have Ellis Home Inspections test your water:

  1. Lead Contamination
    Just an inch of old plumbing can cause long-term brain damage, especially in children.

  2. Arsenic is tasteless:
    20% of untreated drinking water in the USA contains cancer-causing arsenic (USGS) to some degree.

  3. Hidden Maintenance:
    Your biggest investment might come with an expensive headache: water hardness.

  4. Know before you buy:
    Children are especially vulnerable to contaminants in water, and they deserve the best.

    Water samples are easy to read for both well and city water

Pathogens

*Coliform, *E.Coli

Contaminants find their way into water from old pipes, agriculture, industry, and other sources. Often these contaminants have no color, smell or taste. Local authorities will test at some public water facilities, but they don’t know what’s coming out of your faucet, and there’s a lot of pipe between the water treatment facility and your home. Contaminated springs and aquifers can also allow dangerous contaminants to flow to private wells from far away.

Ellis Home Inspections partners with the only water testing service with unbiased treatment matching and health risk analysis – so you don’t waste money on treatment that doesn’t do what you need.

*Coliform only tested with private water sources (not tested for when the water sample is taken from a property with public/city water supply)
