Full Service PWTA Well Testing for Real Estate Transactions

The PWTA (Private Well Testing Act) well test is mandated for all home sales in the state of NJ. Unfortunately, a real estate transaction can be a very stressful time to begin with, so let us handle your water needs. RAdata’s in-house certified laboratory and sampling technicians can assist you with knowledge about what needs to be tested, arranging for the test, interpreting your test results, and options for treating a problem if one exists.

To order your NJ well water test online, please fill out the following form:

Note: A PWTA well test is required for Real Estate Transactions in NJ. (To order a PWTA test for an existing well, please select Buy House, Sell House, or Rental when prompted below for the purpose of the test). The standard PWTA test includes analysis for: Coliform, Nitrates, Arsenic, Iron, Manganese, Lead, pH, Gross Alpha Radiation, and 26 Volatile Organic Chemicals. Where required by County, the PWTA test may also include: Mercury or Uranium. Some Municipalities require additional parameters, which are included in the pricing shown below. Please do not use this form to order well testing for FHA or VA loans, as the Standard PWTA test may NOT meet your lenders requirements. Please call our office at 973-927-7303 to discuss testing for FHA or VA loans.

If the home is not involved in a real estate transaction, but you are interested in well water quality testing, you can use this form to order a similar test that includes the same analysis parameters but does not include PWTA State Reporting and GPS positioning. Choose “Water Quality Only” when prompted below for the purpose of the test.

The Standard Turnaround Time is 6 business days. If you need a faster turnaround time please call the office at 877-723-6600 for a price quote, subject to availability. You cannot order a rush sample online.

Please note: we will make every attempt to accommodate your first or second preferred scheduled date; in some instances we may not be able to accommodate your requested dates based on volume or other factors outside of our control. You will be contacted to choose the next available date if we cannot accommodate your preferred dates.

We are a NJ certified Laboratory OQA# 14006, and we offer many options from the State Required PWTA test for home sales, to basic water safety testing, and analysis for general water chemistry or even specific uncommon contaminants of concern for your area. Call today to speak to a representative that can assist you in selecting the correct water quality test to fit your needs.

Water contaminants are present in many homes. 65% of New Jersey is serviced by private wells, and the water quality should be tested on a regular basis to monitor any changes in chemistry. An estimated 20-40% of wells fail bacteria testing. Some indicators of nuisance issues are white spots on clean dishes, unwanted color or odor to the water, erosion of appliances and plumbing, and dry or brittle skin, hair, and nails. Other potentially harmful contaminants, such as Coliform bacteria, can upset the stomach and make you sick.

According to the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), private well owners should test their water regularly for bacteria. The U.S. E.P.A. recommends testing your private well every year for bacteria, nitrates, and pH. If you suspect any other contaminants or there are known contaminants in your area, you should test for those as well. Clean water is something we often take for granted. In truth, the water we use to drink and bathe can contain a number of unseen contaminants. Even from city water sources, which have to follow mandatory quality standards, water must flow through miles of piping and can pick up dirt, chemicals, and bacteria on its way to your home.
