Drinking water analysis

Water is enriched with countless constituents. Ideally, these constituents are healthy and even vital. Unfortunately, there are compounds that can also accumulate in water and become extremely harmful in the long run. Improper handling can lead to dangerous germs and pathogens to form in the water. That is why legislators require regular water analyses from owners of heating and drinking water facilities of a certain scale.

Drinking water test complete

The drinking water test complete is the most comprehensive water analysis in our product portfolio. This water analysis is used to determine the quality of your water. We analyze the water for microbiological parameters and advise you on any and all questions regarding the purity of your drinking water. The water is tested for the most common contaminations and compared to the limits set in the drinking water ordinance. This way you can see at a glance how your water compares the to the given parameters.

Microbiological parameters:

  • E. coli
  • coliform bacteria
  • colony count at 22 °C and 36 °C
