We recommend having a water treatment company to inspect the water treatment equipment. This is a service, we can provide for you as a minor addition to the cost of doing the home inspection. They will test to make sure the correct equipment is being used for the specific water coming out of the well.
They will test for:

• Total dissolved solids
• Tannins or color

According to the Florida Department of Health, 25-33% of homes in Southwest Florida have elevated levels of radon.
