Technical Assistance without Conflict
Suburban Water Testing Labs, Inc.
is ONLY in the business of testing drinking water.
We don't sell water
treatment equipment, so we have nothing to gain by reporting problems in
If your report indicates a water quality problem, our experienced
Technical Assistance personnel are available to provide practical recommendations
for correcting any areas of concern.
We don't suggest "brand names."
We simply give you the information you need to confidently shop around for the
best deals in water treatment equipment. If a "home remedy" will handle
the problem, we explain that as well.
While certain in-home test procedures exist, water testing
is best done in a laboratory.
Microbiology requires culturing of microorganisms.
Other tests require the use of harsh chemicals. This can be dangerous.
We have the proper facility, expertise, and equipment to perform these analyses
in a safe manner.
Why attempt to perform them at home?
