Water Testing

Do you know what is in your drinking water? At A.D.P. Inspections, Inc. of Frederick MD, we are certified by the Maryland Department of the Environment for water sample collection (#1306-06-994). A Maryland certified laboratory is utilized for analysis of the samples.  Your water can taste great, look clear and have no odor – and still be unsafe to drink. Water Testing is the only way to determine if your water is safe for consumption.

This list represents the most common chemical/bacteria analysis testing:

  • Bacteria in the form of Coliform and e-Coli
  • Radon – Gas can dissolve and accumulate in underground water sources and permeate into your drinking water supply
  • Lead
  • Iron

In addition to these, water can also be tested for the following:

  • Aluminum, Arsenic, Calcium, Chloride, Copper, fluoride, Hardness, Magnesium, Manganese, Mercury, Nitrates/Nitrites, pH (acid/alkaline), Phosphate, Potassium, Selenium, Sulfate, Trihalomethanes, Turbidity, Volatile Organic Compounds-VOC’s, and Zinc
