We will test for Arsenic, Bacteria and Uranium. These will be completed at an accredited laboratory. We will also complete a mineral test of hardness, iron, manganese, pH on site.

The well will be drawn down to either 100 feet below static or run at a high flow rate for 1 hour, whichever comes first. The water level will then be measured at specific time intervals. The recovery process can take up to 2 additional hours depending on the well. Results will be reviewed and calculated by our licensed pump installer. If needed we work with a network of local well drillers for additional information.
- Cost of Recovery/ Flow Test: $300 + hst
We will first check the yard for any signs of problems. Using a SeeSnake camera we will visually inspect through an exposed clean out the pipe that runs from the home to the tank. We are looking for construction and condition of the pipe. We then complete a visual inspection of the exposed septic tank and continue our camera inspection from the tank to the field. It is important to inspect the field because most failures occur in the septic field and this is the most expensive component to repair.
A dye test is done by completing a hydraulic load test with tracer dye. Dye is used to visually identify a problem. A follow up to the property should be completed between 2-5 days after the inspection to check the yard for any signs of problems. For this testing to be completed we would need to have the tank exposed completely. If it cannot be exposed we can do a less invasive inspection from the clean out pipe to the tank, and locate the tank for you.
- Cost of full septic inspections: $350 + hst
- Cost of clean out + dye test: $275 + hst
