Water Sample Collection and Analysis

HighWater can collect water samples from your property for submission to an independent UKAS accredited laboratory. Upon receipt of the laboratory report we will write to you with our interpretation of the results, and a recommended course of action if there are water quality issues.

Water samples are often required for the following purposes: in connection with the conveyancing of a house, design of a new private water supply for a new property, identifying water quality issues, such as elevated iron or manganese, bacterial contamination or low pH resulting in corrosion of copper pipework and blue-green staining of sanitary ware and ensuring ongoing effectiveness of installed water treatment equipment.
