Why should I test for Coliform bacteria?
Coliform bacteria are commonly reffered to as indicator organisms because their presence indicates microbial contamination which suggests the presence pathogens. Coliform bacteria themselves are not harmful.
When will I get my test results?
It depends on what test you've requested. The Coliform analysis takes between 18-24hrs and as required by the state, if your Coliform test is positive (present) then we will notify you immediatly via phone call. However, the official report isn't released for 2-3 weeks after the test. For all other analysis it takes about 2-3 weeks until the results are available.
