Water Sampling

Get your water tested for impurities.

Water sampling is the process of taking a representative sample of water for analysis or testing. There are a number of reasons why water may be sampled, including:

  • To test the quality of the water
  • To determine the presence of pollutants or contaminants
  • To monitor the progress of water treatment processes
  • To assess the impact of proposed or existing land use activities on water quality


Some common water-borne diseases include cholera, typhoid, and hepatitis A. These diseases are all caused by the ingestion of contaminated water and can be deadly if not treated. Symptoms of water-borne diseases vary depending on the disease but often include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever.

In Alberta, it is not uncommon for traces of lead to be found in drinking water. Lead can enter the water supply through leaching from old lead pipes, or from contact with lead-based paint. Exposure to high levels of lead can cause a range of health problems, including:

  • Anemia
  • Weakness
  • Kidney damage
  • Brain damage


If you are concerned about the quality of your water, you can have it tested by a certified home inspector. Water sampling is usually a simple and straightforward process, and the results of the analysis can give you peace of mind that your water is safe to drink. Always test your water before buying a new property.

My Experience with John Erdman during our home inspection was a positive and enjoyable one. As a first time home-buyer the inspection was a critical part of the experience and it was John’s professionalism and honesty that helped to put me at ease through the process. John was detailed and thorough but what I appreciated most was his willingness to take the time to explain everything to me. Even my father, who as been in the construction business for over 30 years, was impressed by John’s quality appraisal. John is clearly very knowledgeable and because the inspection was informative and educational for us, I felt extremely prepared and able to commit to our home purchase with confidence. John’s meticulous inspection helped us to prioritize the maintenance of our new home and to begin plans of it’s future development. Not only have I recommended Reliable Home Inspections to everyone I know, I will continue to do so as I feel that anyone in need of a home inspection would benefit greatly from the services he provides.

We have used John from Reliable Home Inspections a couple times now and he is the best. He was highly recommended to us and I am happy to have found someone in the area that we can trust. He is very thorough and very patient. He goes above and beyond to explain what he is doing and what he recommends and why. I also have a million questions and he has been very patient with me and answering all my questions without hesitation. He is very knowledgable! We have been very impressed our experiences with John and highly recommend him !

My husband and I hired John in October 2018 to conduct the home inspection for our new house. I was so impressed with John’s thoroughness and expertise! We were able to walk through with him and he patiently explained items that were an immediate concern or potential future concern, as well as giving us great recommendations on preventative maintenance. He also provided a very comprehensive report with his findings and recommendations (which helped a lot in the house buying negotiation process!) and a home owner’s manual detailing out preventative maintenance tasks. As a first-time homeowner, this manual was very appreciated and has been referenced multiple times already! The other great thing about John’s services is the insurance period he offers after the inspection to back up his work, giving even further peace of mind. John was friendly and helpful throughout the whole process. My husband and I were satisfied that John had completed a very comprehensive inspection, and would highly recommend John to anyone who requires home inspection services.
