Do You Know What You’re Drinking?
Healthy Home Environmental Services can tell you – a simple water test can restore your confidence in the safety of you and your family. More importantly, testing may reveal contaminants that you have unknowingly been living with for many years.
Healthy Home Environmental Services offers water testing for drinking water and well water in the Greater Orlando area. Houses with well water should be tested annually for bacteria and chemical contamination. Drinking water drawn from private wells should be tested for the presence of bacteria at least once a year or any time there is a change in taste, odor, color or appearance of the well water. Testing drinking water for all possible pathogens is complex, time-consuming and expensive. It is relatively easy and inexpensive to test for coliform bacteria and other common metals.
Real Estate Transactions
The most common water test for well water testing required for real estate transactions is a bacteria test. There is a 3-day turnaround time for lab analysis results. This particular test shows presence and absence only. Please call for pricing if levels are required or for additional water testing needs. It is the Buyer’s/Seller’s responsibility to know what test is required by Lender.

When a water sample is sent to a lab, it is tested for total coliform, fecal coliform and E. coli.
