Our Top Water Testing Kits

We offer a range of tap water testing kits¬† to suit your needs. Our testing kits are easy to use, with detailed instructions and results available within a few days in most cases. We also offer a water hardness test as part of all packages, which will help you determine if your tap water is too hard or soft for the intended use. So if you’re looking for an accurate and reliable way to test your tap water, look no further than Aquavue! Thanks for choosing us!

Unless mentioned otherwise, all our tests are certified in a UKAS approved lab (or ISO equivalent if based in Europe) and independently tested.
