TESTING - Knowing what is in your water is so very important. We offer a basic water test for a modest fee to cover our time and testing equipment. We test for up to 12 parameters commonly shown to be of the most widely varied and significant when it comes to making your water fit for consumption. The results we get, give us a strong indication of what is required by the means of filtration and treatment. We however always advise a UKAS accredited laboratory test to finalise water quality before and/or after filtration/treatment - we can arrange this for you and talk you through the results. Please call or email to discuss your best options.
