Making water testing easy...
Offering you the independent lab certified way of testing your water
From pH, and alkalinity, to common and rare metals, to PFAs and other volatile organic compounds, we cover it all. If you can't find the analyte you are after, get in touch with us and chances are that one of our contracted labs could definitely help.
fully reliable water testing
We went ahead and contracted independent UKAS certified labs that you can easily access for your water testing.
We know your family's health and safety are most important. That is why we created the first network of UK and EU labs that individual households and businesses can access to have their drinking water tested.
- Use the same water testing labs as government companies
- NO hidden agendas
- NO biased opinions
- NO upsells of filtering equipment
- NO wasted time
Although the human body is made up of 60-70% water, the purity of water today isn’t what it used to be 100 years ago.
Factors negatively affecting the water quality include:
- Pollution: Industrial and agricultural activities, as well as urbanization, have caused increased pollution of water sources. This can include the discharge of chemicals, sewage, and other waste products into rivers, lakes, and other large bodies of water.
- Climate change: Changes in weather activity, and the general global warming has lead to more severe droughts and floods, and this can affect water quality. The higher temperatures in pipes, lakes and the ocean can also lead to an increase in harmful algae and bacteria.
- Overuse and depletion of water resources: With increasing populations and urbanization, the demand for water is higher than ever before. This has led to the depletion of water reservoirs, that were once the main source of water for whole urban or rural centres. This low water level can lead to increased salinization and degradation of water quality.
- Poor infrastructure: Quick expansion of the population and communities, has led to inadequate infrastructure to treat and distribute clean water. This can lead to water contamination and disease outbreaks.
- Lack of regulation: Not so much in the UK and Western Europe, but a lack of regulation and enforcement can also contribute to the decline in water quality. This can include the failure of companies or individuals to properly treat and dispose of waste, as well as a lack of oversight of water treatment facilities. Although regular water testing is a strict requirement for water companies, a lot of the testing is user dependent and may not always fully conform to the UKAS certification requirements.
- PFAS (aka Forever Chemicals): There are over 9,000 different types of Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS). These are becoming more and more commonly used in today’s products. Most people are not even aware that the stain resistant carpet they just bought or their favorite non-stick frying pan contains chemicals that could be harming them. Once in nature, they would also take over 1,000 years to break down, and for this reason they are known as “forever chemicals”. The result? Over time, these PFAS will sip into the water table and eventually into our drinking water.
Our founding team recognised the challenges posed today in ensuring that the water you and your family drink on a daily basis, is free from harmful contaminants.

So how does our water testing work?
As we all know, prevention is better than cure – hence why we created our own network of UKAS/ ISO approved laboratories that would help us provide every single household with a way of accurately testing their tap water.
Following this, we created a custom-made kit that can be purchased by anyone wanting to obtain a lab-quality water testing report. The water testing kit contains one or multiple bottles (depending on the test package ordered) that need to be filled and returned to the address on the pre-paid label.
Five to seven days later, you get your report, together with non-biased and honest recommendations on what you can do to improve your water quality.
Please note that all our tests offered are used for self-monitoring and may not stand up to official or judicial authority, since the sampling is carried out by you as a private individual and not by accredited staff. If you believe that you require judicially and officially recognised results in accordance with local regulatory requirements, please ensure you read the local regulations. You can contact us and we will be happy to advise you.
