At SPS Inspections, your safety is our priority. Whether you are purchasing a new home or have been living in the same one for several years, we can help you stay safe from exposure to toxic bacteria and harmful contaminants in your drinking water with water quality testing and inspection services that inform you of what types of contaminants if any are present and at what levels of concentration.
Whether you are a homeowner who is concerned there might be something unhealthy in your drinking water or you are in the middle of a real estate transaction for a property with a private well, SPS Inspections can provide you with all of the water quality testing and private well inspection services you need!
In Washington State, any home whose water is provided by a private well is required to undergo a private well inspection, which includes testing the quality of the water for different minerals and bacterias such as e. Coli bacteria, nitrates and nitrites, levels of copper, iron, and lead, the water’s pH level, hardness, alkalinity, clarity, and more!
Drinking water that is not properly treated or that travels through an improperly maintained distribution system (pipes) may also create conditions that increase the risk of contamination.

Even though U.S. tap water supplies are considered to be among the safest in the world, water contamination can still occur. There are many possible sources of contamination, including:
At SPS Inspections, the cost of Water Quality Testing and Inspection Services starts at $380 and goes up from there depending on the needs of the client. This pays for shipping costs to get your water samples to an accredited lab, and the water sample testing and results for the samples collected from the home by one of our certified home inspectors.
Once the samples have been collected from your home by one of our experienced inspectors, they are shipped directly to the lab's testing facilities where they will be cultivated for 72 hours before results are conclusive. The lab we use is open from Monday through Friday so water samples are not processed over the weekends. This being said, the turnaround time for water quality testing and inspection services averages 5 business days.
As the collected water samples are required to be overnighted to the lab, it is not possible to place a rush on water quality testing as overnight shipping is already calculated into the cost of the inspection and testing services.
At SPS Inspections of Olympia Washington, we offer water quality testing and inspection services all over the South Puget Sound and beyond; including but not limited to Thurston County, King County, Pierce County, Jefferson County, Mason County, Grays Harbor County, and more!
