Water Resources

Increasing environmental pollution also affects the water which is used to supply us with drinking water. To ensure your family’s health and safety, it is important to make sure that your home drinking water is safe. Water can be made up of a wide range of substances or organisms.
They are not necessarily harmful but may become a contaminant or a nuisance at higher levels.
Our water test kits contain a range of different test strips to give you a wide overview of the quality of your water, whether relating to a less harmful contaminant like pH or chlorine or a more harmful one.

There are many reasons why you may want to test the water supply in your home or business.
Some instances of when it is recommended to test drinking water are listed below:

  • If your water supply is private, ie. comes from a well in your garden, then routine tests should be carried out regularly
  • If you have recurring incidents of gastrointestinal illness within your family
  • If you know or suspect that your household plumbing contains lead pipes, fittings, or solder joints
  • If you are buying a new home or renting a new property
  • If water stains plumbing fixtures and laundry
  • If water has an objectionable taste or smell
  • If water appears cloudy, frothy, or coloured
  • If pipes or plumbing show signs of corrosion
  • If water leaves scaly residues or household appliances don’t appear to be working efficiently
  • If water supply equipment (pump, chlorinators, etc.) wear rapidly
  • If you have installed a water softener or some sort of filtering system to ensure it is working correctly
  • If you know or suspect that you may have lead pipes

Don’t just rely on your water supplier to deliver clean and safe water. Most contaminants cannot be detected by smell, taste or sight.
