Bacteria Water Testing
Ensuring the safety and purity of your drinking water is crucial for maintaining your family’s good health and well-being.
Unfortunately, many water sources may contain harmful bacteria such as Coliform (inc. E. Coli) or even Legionella, which can cause serious illness if consumed.
This is why you can now test your water sample at UKAS/ ISO certified labs all through our easy to use mail delivery kit.
Have a look below at your options. We would recommend to use these kits in addition to one of our CORE WATER TESTING KITS as this will help gain a thorough picture of your water supply and help you make the right changes.
Have confidence that your water is safe to consume with our UKAS certified lab testing for Coliform, including E. Coli and also Legionella bacteria (16 serogroups of Legionella pneumophila and non-pneumophila species)
Our user-friendly products provide accurate and certified results, equipping you with the knowledge of knowing just how pure your drinking water really is.
Legionella bacteria are often found in water systems such as hot tubs, showers, hot water tanks or even old taps. They often cause severe respiratory illnesses such as Legionnaire’s disease. This can be serious and even life-threatening, especially in children or older people, or those with weakened immune systems.
Coliform bacteria are a group of bacteria that are commonly found in the environment, and while most are harmless, some can cause severe illnesses such as diarrhea, dysentery, and other illnesses.
Our testing kits provide an accessible and reliable way to identify potentially hazardous bacteria in your water supply. The process is straightforward.
For the Legionella testing, you collect a sample in our special containers, then send it for analysis at a lead UKAS certified lab – results are delivered to you in about 10-12 days (incubation time of 10 days required as per regulations)
For the self-test Coliform kit, you simply order the kit then follow the instructions, allowing for the bacteria to incubate (this can often be for 48-72 hours).
In the event of coliform or legionella contamination being detected, we advise on effective and independent treatment options so that safe drinking water can be restored without delay.
