The Bacterial Test was developed by Xperiential’s scientists in accordance with the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Revised Total Coliform Rule, which has been designed to improve public health as compared to prior regulation. In addition, we provide you with a count of the number of bacterial colonies found in your water sample, another indicator of the quality of your water supply.
This package tests your water for the presence of Total Coliform and E. coli bacteria and also includes a count of bacterial colonies found in your water, through our heterotrophic plate count. The Bacterial Test is often ordered as part of our customers’ annual water testing plans or as follow up testing after completion of water treatment or plumbing repairs and particularly when you want the improved accuracy and precision that comes with certified laboratory testing of your water for bacteria, as compared to do-it-yourself bacteria tests.
(*)shows you the number of bacterial colonies found in your water sample. Increases in this number over time can indicate adverse changes in your water quality.
