Meath Co Co Well Grant Testing - Self Sampling


This full drinking water test is based on European Union (Drinking Water) Regulations 2023.

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.

This option is customers who choose to sample themselves. Technician sampling is not included in this option.

All analysis is INAB accredited to ISO 17025 standards, giving you confidence that your results are accurate and will be accepted by County Councils for the purpose of Well Grant applications. 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 sample will be tested for the following parameters as required by Meath County Council:

Arsenic Ammonia Colour Conductivity
Iron Nitrate pH Hardness
Turbidity Total Coliforms E Coli Fluoride
Manganese Taste Odour

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.
