This Audit Drinking Water suite is based on European Union (Drinking Water) Regulations 2023. The purpose of audit monitoring is to check whether all the limit values specified in the Drinking Water Regulations are being achieved in your water supply.
This kit contains 12 bottles, gloves and instructions on how to take your drinking water sample properly. Once the sample is taken you should deliver the bottles back to us on the same day however the sample can be received in the laboratory up to 24 hours after being taken.
All analysis is INAB accredited to ISO17025 standards, giving you confidence that your results are accurate. Our laboratory scientists use advanced instrumentation to provide accurate results up to 5 times more accurate than a home water testing kit purchased off the shelf.
The water sample will be tested for the following parameters:
|Ammonium as NH4
|TBC @ 22°C
|PAH (Sum of 4)
|Nitrate as NO3
|Nitrite as NO2
|Tetrachloroethene & Trichloroethene
If we find your drinking water sample to contain levels of bacteria, we will alert you within 3 days by email. The Certificate of Analysis with the remainder of the parameters to be tested will be emailed to you in 10 working days along with an information sheet on understanding your results.
(Note: From July 2020 all local authorities require a trained technician from an accredited laboratory to take the sample for the purposes of applying for a well grant. Fitz Scientific Technicians are very experienced and trained in taking aseptic water samples using the proper sampling regime. They will bring the sample back to our Drogheda Laboratory, on the same day within the recommended time span and under the proper temperature conditions. Do not purchase this self sampling kit if you are applying for a well grant - see https://drinkingwater.fitzsci.ie/collections/well-water-grants)
