Water Testing can be an important element of well inspection

Well Water Testing for Real Estate Transactions

(FHA / VA / USDA + Other)

Detail View Home Inspections provides approved testing for real estate transactions for FHA, USDA, and VA home loans, as well as other home purchases, real estate contracts, home refinances, and any other need that an underwriter or home-buyer may request.  We offer pick-up services from the property to be tested, and have turnaround times available as quickly as “next day” for fast closings.

We provide well water testing for coliforms and E. Coli, nitrite and nitrate, and lead. All see our well inspection services

We cover Southwest Virginia, including Roanoke, Franklin County, Salem, Vinton, Botetourt County, and the surrounding areas for your real estate water tests for home loans or other testing reasons.

New Home Purchase Well Water Testing

Detail View Home Inspections provides well water testing services across the state of Virginia.  We provide dozens of tests, including microbiology, coliforms, E. Coli, Nitrite, Nitrate, Lead and other trace metals, and any other test that you require.

Some of the most common types of loans to require well water testing are FHA, VA, USDA and refinancing. We are certied inspectors for these and more. 

Professional Sample Collection & Pickup

Most home loan well water tests don’t allow for customer or homeowner submission of water samples. Like doctors, they require a known chain of evidence. 

So Detail View’s certified home inspectors send our water-sample collection techs to you or your client.  With professionally trained water collection techs we reduce expensive false-positives, and deliver better results to you.

Rush Orders – Same Day/Next Day

We offer real estate transaction well and water testing with “rush” options, as quick as same-day pickups and next-day results. We understand that some home offers and real estate transactions require fast timing so we deliver!

We’re the fast, friendly, and professional well water testing solution that you’ve been looking for.

Our guaranteed sample turnaround times are calculated as “business days” being Monday through Thursday, and are subject to your availability to meet our sample collection technician at the property having its water tested. Laboratory does not accept samples on Friday. Full Spectrum test results usually take 5-7 business days. Bacteria tests results are generally delivered in 24 hours.

Coliforms and E. Coli are sometimes referred to as the “bacteria” tests, or the “microbiological” tests.  The “full” test includes the microbiological test, along with testing for nitrate, nitrite, and lead.  If your underwriter or agent is requiring a test other than one of the ones below, or if you aren’t sure which one you need, don’t worry. You can contact us and we’ll be happy to assist.

What About Your Well?

In addition to water testing, you may want to test the source of your water. For rural Southwest Virginia and the surrounding areas, that water source is often a well. Detail View Home Inspections also offers well inspections. We test the functionality of your well, examine all of its working parts, check for contaminants, test water flow and provide our findings. We’ll give you our recommendations based on our inspections. 

Detail View Home Inspections also partners with Wellgard to offer you protection for your well, so you never have to worry about losing access to clean water!
