Well water quality

Asked October 14, 2015, 10:23 PM EDT

do you provide services for checking for nitrites and bacteria? Our house is for sale and we'd like to know if we need correction before waiting for inspector to say we need it- Would like to have basic results very soon. Have done a little research and see there are home kits available at Lowe's but very mixed reviews.

Our Benton County office offers a free nitrate screening. However, you will have to have a official laboratory result as part of the real estate transaction anyways. Here is the list of accredited labs that you can use http://wellwater.oregonstate.edu/water-tests

Home kits are not advised and are frequently very inaccurate.
