Domestic Well Testing
Are you a private homeowner or realtor looking for domestic well testing analysis?
Look no further than wetlab.

We provide an all-inclusive, comprehensive drinking water analysis service for a flat fee of $600 (inclusive of all analytical fees). WETLAB is certified for testing public and private water systems in Nevada, with reciprocity for testing in California, Wyoming, and Idaho.

Private domestic well owners face a unique challenge being responsible for the quality of their own water, which means regular testing. At WETLAB, you can experience thorough testing of contaminants covering anions, heavy metals, and bacteria (see table for full list of analyses completed).

Analysis reporting results are delivered to your inbox within 10-business days (expedition not available).
