Chemical Potability (Drinking) Water Analysis

£147.00£187.00 exc. VAT

Break down of parameters in each analysis in description below.

Simply fill the bottle, return in the prepaid envelope and wait for results.

Uses of analysis to identify:

  • Possible cause of scale or corrosion including galvanic
  • Possible cause of taste issues
  • Possible cause of staining or discolouration
  • Cause of ‘eggy smell’ in water
  • Common toxins

Lead Time: Up to 12 working days

For a wider water screen for toxicity or hygiene reasons you may want to add potable metals and microbial potability.

When would you test chemical potability?

The chemical potability analysis can be performed when trying to identify a strange taste or taint in drinking water which can be caused by higher metal levels.

It can also show the scaling or corrosive tendencies of the water. This may be useful where a household or business is trying to identify the reason for corrosion or scale in the pipework be this for drinking water or process water. The analysis can identify galvanic corrosion for example an excess of manganese could be the cause of copper corrosion or corrosive water rusting a heating cylinder could be the reason for brown water (iron).

Excessive levels of Iron, Manganese or Copper can cause staining of fixtures, basins & pools.

High Nitrite and Sulphide levels can be toxic and may be indicative of fertiliser or sewage contamination.

An eggy smell in water could mean the presence be sulphate reducing bacteria which can be identified by the presence of high levels of sulphide and sulphate.

Our analysis will come with a written interpretation of our findings giving you a explanation as to whether any issues you have informed us of could be caused by out of spec parameters with a comparison against the Drinking Water Inspectorate limits.

For a wider water screen for toxicity or hygiene reasons you may want to add potable metals and microbial potability.
