Water Testing

Water Testing

We offer a broad range of individual tests, as well as a suite of cost-effective group tests tailored to the needs of experts, as well as non-specialists, private households, farms, guesthouses small businesses and a range of industries.

General recommendations, for instance on the suitability of a tested water sample for human consumption, livestock watering or irrigation purposes, waste water, bottling water, concrete water, corrosion testing, annual testing for food manufacturing and industrial effluents are included with the group test reports.

Analytical Laboratory Services continuously improves services and updates methods and operating procedures in line with current best practices in the field.

To ensure that performance is up to international standards the laboratory participates regularly in inter laboratory comparisons.

Standard water test

Standard water test

Applicable to any water which is used for domestic purposes irrespective of its source, or whether or not, it has been treated. The test report includes an assessment of suitability for primarily human and livestock consumption, but also for other household uses.

This group includes pH, conductivity, turbidity, total dissolved solids, alkalinity, total calcium and magnesium hardness, chloride, fluoride, sulphate, nitrate, nitrite, Na, K, Mg, Ca, Mn, Fe, stability index, corrosivity index.

Human consumption water test

Human consumption water test

Appropriate as above, furthermore where there is concern over microbial contamination or where the absence of bacteria must be demonstrated such as in the case of water bottling and hospitality businesses.

This group includes the same tests as the Standard Water Microbiology (heterotrophic plate count E coli (MPN 10 tubes). Samples are accepted only in laboratory supplied bottles.

Bottling water test

Applicable to any water which is sold as a beverage in bottles irrespective of its source, or whether or not, it has been treated. The test report includes an assessment of suitability for human consumption. This group includes the same tests as the Standard Water Test + Toxic elements ( Pb, As, Cr, Se)
Approved !

Irrigation water test

Irrigation water test

Appropriate for the testing of borehole and dam water. The test report includes an assessment of suitability for irrigation purposes. This group includes pH, conductivity, alkalinity, total hardness, chloride, fluoride, sulphate, nitrate, Na, K, Mg, Ca,
Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, stability index, corrosivity index, sodium absorption ratio, residual sodium carbonate, magnesium ratio.

Waste water re use test

Waste water re use test

This group includes pH, conductivity, oxidation reduction potential, DO, TDS means TSS, COD, BOD, total nitrogen, nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, o phosphate, chloride, sulphate, sodium.

Concrete mixing water test

This group includes pH, conductivity, TDS calc alkalinity, chloride, sulphate.
