WETLAB is a certified lab for drinking water testing in Nevada, with reciprocity for testing in California, Wyoming, and Idaho. This means that when you send drinking water samples to WETLAB, we guarantee thorough, high-quality data that complies with regulatory standards. We ensure that your sample is analyzed with up-to-date methods, performed with the precision and attention to detail that you require. We analyze drinking water for regulated public water systems of all sizes and for private domestic wells.
Private domestic well owners face a unique set of circumstances not often realized by many people who utilize a community water system. Well owners are responsible for ensuring their own water quality, which means regular water testing. Your water can contain microscopic particulates and micro-organisms that you would be unable to detect with your naked eye. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends testing your well regularly for several contaminants, including total coliform, pH, corrosion, nitrates, and metals. If you experience any changes in water quality, such as rapid corrosion of pipes, undesirable tastes or smells, or increased scaly build-up, you may be interested in testing your water quality.
If you are interested in testing your private domestic well, reference this helpful guide from the UNR Cooperative Extension. This guide will help you determine what drinking water parameters you may be interested in testing for, and what the critical limits for some contaminants are. After you test your water, you can use this tool to help interpret your results. Our friendly staff at WETLAB will be happy to assist you with any other questions you might have.
