Water Testing/Analysis Service?

Was wondering if anyone knows of a reliable water testing/analysis service/lab anywhere near Loreto/Mulege/Sta. Rosalia. I'm increasingly curious about what is in the acquifer water we use at Punta Chivato. I know I can get comprehensive testing done stateside, but the logistics would be a bit tricky.

the water has lots of calcium in it

it could have mold from the pipes since no one adds chlorine to it

it could have grease and oil from the pump if they service it
i've gotten unusable milky water right at the pump after a service

it will have dirt and sand in it...there is no filter at the pump

i recently got water from your pump and its really clear
san bruno's water was murky

just filter it and put some chlorine in it...
dont drink it

its safe...people drink it

We chlorinate our water, add H2O2 for iron and sulphur smell and bubble ozone through the water tank. Never have had any problems. We filter all the water and soften the hot water as well.
