Lab Services

If you do not monitor your water quality by having it tested at an accredited laboratory, you cannot tell whether your drinking water is safe or not. Harmful bacteria, parasites, and viruses are invisible to the naked eye, so water that looks and tastes good may not necessarily be safe to drink. These microbes can exist in both ground and surface water supplies, and can cause immediate health effects if not properly treated for.

Why test my water?
  • Regular testing is necessary to determine specific water quality problems
  • To help ensure you are using water suitable for your intended use.
  • To help ensure that your drinking water is safe.
  • To help determine the effectiveness of your water treatment system.

The quality of a water source may change over time, sometimes suddenly. Many changes can go unnoticed as the water may look, smell and taste the same as it always did. Monitoring your water quality is necessary to ensure your treatment system is working effectively, providing the best quality water for your intended use.

We provide a highly personal approach to all aspects of our service, maintaining close links with our clients throughout the testing process. Our experienced team is always willing to discuss any problems or concerns that might be present and give the best possible advice to suit the needs of our clients. Our testing services are always tailored to meet your individual analysis requirements, delivering high quality laboratory analysis to demanding deadlines and budgets.
