General water test parameters:
This article lists a set of general 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.

This "General Water Test" is more thorough than a simple coliform test but may not meet VA or FHA minimum standards for drinking water. Be sure to review actual parameters with your home inspector or laboratory: parameters and costs vary.
One might take this approach after obtaining knowledge of property history, site inspection, conversation with neighbors, or check with a local health department. Readers should also see General Classes of Water Contaminants.
