This test requires "closed house" (windows closed and doors closed except for entry and exit) conditions for 12 hours prior to and throughout the required minimum 48-hour test period. The continuous radon monitor test is considered to be the most reliable test for real estate transactions, because it includes features to prevent tampering. An additional feature of the continuous monitor test is same day results when the test is completed.
This test will determine the minimum available water volume for a 60 minute period from a home's water system. This test does not accurately indicate the recovery rate of the well. Recovery rate can only be accurately tested by well technicians with specialized equipment at the wellhead, which is time consuming and expensive. This test will verify the volume of water available from all sources, including the fill rate of the well, water stored within the well and water stored within any storage system. This is similar to the test that HUD and other government agencies require for homes that they provide financing for, where they need to confirm 3 gal/min on older homes and 5 gal/min for new homes for a 60 minute period.
This service will verify the existence of coliform bacteria, lead, pesticides, chlorine, nitrites and nitrates. PH and hardness are also verified. The bacteria test is a culture test that requires 48 hours for completion.
