Laboratory Water Analysis

Laboratory analysis services ready to order from our online shop.

Both Microbial and Chemical analysis available.

Water Analysis Service

Feedwater has two laboratories, a UKAS accredited micro bacteriological laboratory which makes us the only UK water treatment service company with an in-house UKAS accredited laboratory for Legionella Testing and a chemistry laboratory which allows us to offer exceptional service to our clients providing technical and analytical assistance where needed.

More recently we have also opened up this service as a package which can be ordered online through our webshop by anyone who requires assistance in identifying water contaminates, bacterial presence, water treatment levels or the makeup of elements which define its character including metals.

You can now purchase the water analysis you need through our webshop. Our complete analysis packages come supplied with sample bottles & instructions and pre-paid return postage packs. As soon as we have completed the analysis we will issue you with a certificate of results. We believe this makes water investigation as straightforward as possible from the moment you order online.

So whether you are concerned about legionella, drinking water quality or chemical or microbial contamination of your water system we can help you today!

Swimming Pool / Spa Microbial Water Analysis

£72.00£116.00 exc. VAT
Rated 4.80 out of 5

Swimming Pools and Spas can cause outbreaks of infection such as eye and ear infection and gastro-enteritis. Spas have also been shown to cause serious, potentially fatal Legionnaires’ disease. For these reasons swimming pool testing is required for public pools and recommended by Feedwater for private pools.

Parameters included for Swimming Pool and Spa testing analysis are set out in the product description below.

Spa pools require the additional Legionella water test every quarter as well as risk assessments and comprehensive control program. Speak to us about risk assessments and pool treatments.

Insulated Special Delivery Return Packets are now included in the price.

For this analysis we require at least two samples, one from the leak water the second from a reference sample from a likely source such as mains or a stream etc. This allows us to compare the two and work out if they match or if the leak sample is different, if different we can investigate to identify the likely source from the chemistry. If you would like to provide the leak + 2 reference samples from different sources you suspect this can assist analysis further.

We require a full 1l & 250ml sample bottle from each source to be able to perform this test. Refunds will not be offered where minimum sample requirements are not met.

Chemical analysis can take up to 12 days and micro results 3 days.

Chemical analysis is readily available to order online, however sometimes it may not be immediately obvious which analysis is most suitable, this video explains what to do in the event you require further assistance.

Analysis for metals including heavy metals is also available in the next tab where we have predesigned packages for the most common requirements.

For bespoke analysis, we have a Pick and Mix analysis package below which can be used to choose the parameters which you require analysis for. Be aware there is a premium for bespoke analysis due to additional admin it creates for the lab so it is always best to check existing packages to see if these cover the parameters you require analysis for. If you require periodic analysis for a bespoke set of parameters we may be able to design a set package for you at an agreed cost, in this case please get in contact using the contact us tab above.

Legionella Testing & Analysis

Feedwater have made the deliberate decision to be a Centre of Excellence for legionella control, using our own in-house laboratory accredited by UKAS we have stringent legionella analysis & testing services. Being highly knowledgeable in Legionella our laboratory is always a top performers in the HPA EQA scheme.* More recently Feedwater has been pioneering a new rapid legionella analysis using qPCR technology to count Legionella DNA with results in as little as 8 hours.

Please visit our Legionella Testing page to find out more.

How can I arrange sampling?

If you require a service where we visit site to perform one-off or periodic sampling we can arrange for one of our local consultants to take on this role, if required they may also be able to assist in identifying sampling points, in the case of Legionella sampling it is a requirement for businesses that a legionella risk assessment is performed to identify risk to people and which outlets need to be periodically sampled. If you think you may require a legionella risk assessment please speak to us. In many cases it is simpler and much more cost effective to order sample kits from us online, these include sample bottles and prepaid mailing packs so that you can collect the samples and courier them to us for rapid analysis. This service is available to both our UK and overseas customers (for certain analysis).

Legionella sampling and all types of water testing can be carried out on a one-off or contract basis. Contact us to discuss your water analysis requirements.
