Why test drinking water?
When was the last time that you had the quality of your tap water tested?
Here in the UK, water utility companies have to conform to strict water quality standards set by the Government, and enforced by the regulator, the Drinking Water Inspectorate (DWI).
These standards ensure that the water flowing through the mains distribution system is up to scratch at all times.
However, once the water leaves the mains supply and enters a private residence or commercial building, the pipes, storage tanks, local distribution systems and other factors can start to affect the quality of the water.
There are also properties, mostly in remote locations, which depend on other types of private water supplies such as springs, boreholes, rivers, lakes or wells and people using these types of supplies may need to carry out their own drinking water testing too.
Monitoring packages can include water sampling and analysis (chemical and microbiological including legionella).
Water samples collected will be submitted to an independent UKAS accredited laboratory facility for analysis and reporting. Pool water samples collected are stored in refrigerators following collection and during transit.
All water samples collected are processed by independent UKAS accredited laboratory facilities within 6 hours of collection.
Certificates of analysis will be sent to the client following the receipt of results from the laboratory.
