Sampling and Testing

Microbiological And Testing

All water sources contain naturally-occurring bacteria, the majority of which are harmless to humans. Any water supplied for domestic purposes, whether for drinking, washing or cooking, must not contain any element, organism or substance that would be detrimental to public health.

We can provide simple bacteria dip slide testing or expert water sampling and analysis services using UKAS approved laboratories where the interpretation of the results are carried out by experienced microbiologists.

Sampling can be carried out for all water-borne bacteria including:

  • Legionella
  • Total Viable Count
  • Coliforms
  • Cryptosporidium

We can also provide chemical analysis of low pressure hot water and chiller systems to ensure the correct dosing for maximum efficiency and long term protection of the plant and pipework.
