Your Water & The Local Water Authority
Most people do not normally have a problem with their water. Water supplied from the mains supply is regulated and should be what is called "Potable" water meaning it is safe to drink and wash in. There are however some regional differences in water types, taste and smell. Any immediate concern should be reported to your local water authority as they are legally responsible for the mains supply to your property boundary. Once "potable" water enters your property boundary it becomes your responsibility and you are responsible for any leaks, contamination, misuse or "erroneous measurement" of the mains water.
Your local water authority can provide you with a free report on water quality in the area and if you wish test your water (there may be a fee for this). If you are unhappy with their response you can contact the Drinking Water Inspectorate who will try and work the water authority to resolve your complaint. If you want to have your water tested independently we can help and advise you on the test results.
Our Water Testing Service
If you want to have your water tested independently we can arrange to call to your property, take a sample(s) of water to be tested by a UKAS Accredited Laboratory. Once the test is complete you will be issued with a report about your water quality. Microbiological Analysis is a testing process that looks for bacteria in your water such as Ecoli and other Coliform bacteria. These types of bacteria indicate contamination of the water supply and if present require immediate action. If you are interested in our testing service please email us for a quote.
Even when your water meets the legal standards it doesn't mean your water is right for you and your needs. You may have hard or soft water. You may even have a reaction to substances in your water such as chlorine, metals and minerals although this is rare. For some people even, the acidity or alkalinity of water can be an issue. If you have problems with your water even though it meets the legal supply standards we may be able to help.
