Standard VA FHA- water test parameters - how to check for pesticide contaminants in drinking water

This article lists a set of standard water test parameters for property buyers or owners who want to be more thorough than performing only a simple "coliform" or "bacteria" test (all that most banks require) but who do not have reason to test for more specific water contaminants.

One might take this approach after obtaining knowledge of property history, site inspection, conversation with neighbors, or check with a local health department.

The parameters selected in this test group will meet all VA (Veterans Administration) or FHA (Federal Housing Administration) requirements for water potability. Be sure to review actual parameters with your home inspector or laboratory: parameters and costs vary.
