How to collect a Well Water Sample: (ALL STEPS MUST BE FOLLOWED TO ENSURE ACCURACY)


  • Clean each jar / bottle thoroughly with soapy water. Make sure all soap and water is washed out and dried.

  • Use a minimum of 8 oz. of water from each location you want to draw a sample from.

  • Take a cloth and dab bleach onto the cloth. Rub each faucet head you will be collecting the water sample from in order to clean it from any airborne bacteria that may contaminate the sample.

  • Run the water for 5 minutes after cleaned from each faucet before collecting a sample.

  • Fill each jar to the top with as little air as possible in the jar / bottle. Close it tightly.

  • Label each bottle / jar with your name and the source you collected it from (i.e. Outside faucet, Kitchen faucet, etc.)

  • Bring in the sample the same day you collect it to our office

  • Testing available Monday thru Friday 8:00 – 5:00 pm. Please allow 3 business days for results as it takes time for bacteria to culture.

  • DO NOT store jars / bottles in a hot location or leave in a hot car as it may compromise the sample's accuracy.
