collects water samples for potability, which
is required on all properties that utilize
wells, cisterns, or springs before a real
estate closing. Some FHA lenders require
water to be tested for Lead, Nitrate and
Nitrite. Check with you lender.
Benchmark Labs is an Ohio EPA certified
laboratory. Lab results are normally
reported within 24 hours. We
also offer well chlorination and water
retesting for samples that do not pass the
Ohio EPA Result Interpretation:
TC Negative = Free from Coliform bacteria –
TC Positive = Coliform bacteria present –
A failed water test can normally be remedied
by chlorinating the water supply source.
We also offer a Complete Water Check (CWC)
for owners who desire a more extensive
evaluation of their water source. The CWC
tests for 97 different items, including
pesticides, herbicides and metals. This test
can take up to 15 days to complete.
