Sulfate Reducing Bacteria (SRB) are naturally present in the environment and can produce a slime that may clog plumbing, wells, and irrigation systems. The SRB Well Water Test checks your well water for this commonly found bacteria. The SRB Well Water Test may only be ordered as an add-on to our other Xpress Water Testing® kits.
Sulfate Reducing Bacteria may cause a buildup of white, grey, black, or reddish-brown slime, which can clog plumbing, wells, and irrigation systems. Sulfate reducing bacteria can also cause corrosion of your plumbing and may be found in conjunction with a rotten egg smell and hydrogen sulfide gas. If you have any of these issues, this test is for you! NOTE: This test takes 10 business days.
