Professional Water Testing
Aquatek is state licensed in both CT and RI to test residential well water. We can test your well water for dozens of parameters including bacteria, lead, arsenic, uranium and more. Keep your family and loved ones safe and test your drinking water annually with Aquatek Labs.
Standard Water Test
The Standard Profile was designed to provide a water analysis that can quickly and accurately determine the general quality of the water you drink. The Standard Profile also tests for newly emerging health concerns including arsenic, uranium, lead and radon in water. The standard Profile meets the needs of both homeowners and professionals and can be used anywhere that a general water screening is required.
Water Sampling Process
Frequently Asked Questions?
Yes, the Basic Profile is our standard test for drinking water. It screens for bacteria as well as physical properties and chemical constituents.
We are certified in both CT and RI for environmental testing.
Results are generally available in 2-3 business days. We send most reports to customers by email. Postal service and fax are also available.
Customers can stop by any of our three locations in CT. Trained staff can determine your testing needs and provide you with the right bottles and paperwork. You can then collect the water and return it to any of our three locations for analysis.
The E.P.A. recommends that home owners have their well water tested annually. Testing is also recommended for water that develops a noticeable change in color, odor, or taste.
No! Aquatek Labs is solely a analytical laboratory. In order to maintain our independence and objectivity we do not sell any type of treatment or mitigation systems.
Common water Problems
Chemicals to test for include arsenic, nitrates-nitrites and pesticides.
Indicates petroleum seeping from a tank into the water supply. Test for volatile organic compounds(VOC’s).
These odors generally result from decaying organic matter in the water.
Usually caused by high iron content as the result of acidic water.
High sodium content in your ground water could be the result of heavily salted roadways or improperly maintained water treatment equipment.
Water containing hydrogen sulfide usually does not pose a health risk, but does give water a nuisance “rotten egg” smell and taste. Sulfur bacteria that produce hydrogen sulfide as a metabolic by-product are generally the cause. Less commonly, a magnesium rod placed in water heaters to prevent corrosion may react with sulfates dissolved in the water to produce hydrogen sulfide. Since extremely small amounts of hydrogen sulfide can be detected in water by smell and taste, laboratory testing is not needed to detect its presence.
Dissolved iron or manganese may oxidize and be deposited onto sinks and other exposed items.
Acidic water can leach copper from household plumbing and deposit it onto fixtures.
Suspended dirt, clay, silt or rust will lend a cloudy appearance to water.
Hardness caused by calcium and magnesium salts dissolved in the water is generally the cause of this problem.
The basic water profile should be used any time that there is a noticeable change in your drinking water.
