It is common practice to test water for metals, this could be for drinking water reasons, limits on the levels prohibited in waste water or to establish the scale potential of the water. To make the provision of these types of water tests simple, Feedwater has created a number of metals analysis packs which include the sample kit and freepost return to our chemistry laboratory for analysis.
We can break down the guidance for you in an easily digestible manner so that you can be clear on what the guidance says and what you should be doing in your situation. Be aware that sometimes there is no requirement or need to sample. But in some cases sampling is required, especially in care homes and health care premises.
