This full drinking water test is based on European Union (Drinking Water) Regulations 2014.
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.
All analysis is UKAS (equivalent to 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.
Once you place your order, we will contact you to arrange a suitable time for a technician to call to take the water sample.
The sample will be tested for the following parameters as required by Westmeath County Council:
|TBCs @ 22 C||Total Coliforms||E Coli||Enterococci|
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.
