It’s simple send us a 375ml sample of water, or we will come to you for a fee - for E.coli we need to receive the sample 500ml ASAP in a sterile container chilled or within an hour of sample, we can supply containers if needed
If you are not sure how to collect a sample please contact our office, we are happy to help you 07 54424788
Why perform water analysis?
The single most important substance on earth is water. Water plays a crucial role in transporting essential nutrients in plants and animals. Knowledge of water quality is essential for wise economic management of primary production land, control of corrosion in pumping & storage equipment, as well as for the health & well being of livestock and humans.
How is your water analysed?
- A number of sophisticated techniques are used to analyse soil samples. Conductivity, pH, TDS, ammonium, nitrates, and chlorides are measured with selective probes. Carbonates and bicarbonates are measured by titration, whilst minerals are measured by ICP MS & OES, GCMS, AAS and IC.
Water Analysis - What we test for
1. Basic parameters:
|Acidity (pH)||Conductivity||Saturation index|
|Conductivity||Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)||Total hardness|
|Ammonium (NH4+)||Magnesium (Mg2+)||Sodium (Na+)|
|Calcium (Ca2+)||Potassium (K+)|
|Phosphates (PO43-)||Chlorides (Cl-)||Carbonates (CO3-)|
|Nitrates (NO3-)||Sulphates (SO42-)||Bicarbonates (HCO32-)|
- 4. Trace elements
- 5. Toxic elements
The levels of the measured parameters will be presented as parts per million
We also conduct a colour index test for the detection of tannins.
Due to the nature of water, samples will change depending on where and how they were taken as well as the time frames in which they are analysed.
Depending on the result in question these changes can occur rather rapidly or very slowly, with temperature playing a role for a various reasons. The analysis of some heavy metals for example is quite stable in most conditions and varies very little, while other parameters such as pH are often measured on site at the time of sampling where possible in order to achieve the most accurate results. We do recommend that samples are sent to us as quickly as possible in order to reduce any possible change in results and refrigerated in order to slow down potential changes where they might occur in order to obtain the most accurate results. How the time frame and temperature changes might affect each sample can change between sample to sample and how any results might be affected
Please advise Aqua Wise if you want your sample sent express and in a cold pack will be extra,
