New Mains Water Supply Analysis
New Mains Water Supply Analysis
The perfect test for New Mains Water Supply Chlorination Certificates for local water companies.
Pressure testing for your new water mains is vital. They will test the durability, reliability and capacity of your pipework, which will allow them to be serviced by water utility companies. They also require evidence that your water mains are leak-proof.
Not having your internal water mains pressure tested could also cause health issues. This is because your existing pipework, over time, would have built up a great amount of dust, dirt and debris which may even impact the cleanliness of your drinking water. It’s essential to get these kinds of issues resolved before even considering refurbishing your water mains pipe.
This water test and analysis includes Coliforms, E. coli, TVC @22°C, TVC @37°C, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Legionella UKAS Analysis. Non-UKAS analysis is also included via on-site testing: Total Chlorine, Chlorine Free, Turbidity.
The test will include 2 sterile bottles.

New Mains Water Supply Analysis FAQs
Why should I conduct a New Mains Water Supply Analysis?
Testing for bacteria in water is important because it can indicate the presence of harmful microorganisms that can cause illness if consumed or used for personal hygiene. Bacteria such as E. coli, Coliform and fecal coliform can indicate the presence of fecal matter and sewage in the water, which can increase the risk of waterborne diseases such as diarrhea, cholera, and typhoid fever. Additionally, testing can also indicate if the water is safe for swimming, boating, and other recreational activities. Regular testing helps ensure that the water supply is safe for consumption and use.
How long does the test take?
The time it takes for water testing to be completed in the UK can vary depending on the type of test being conducted, the water sample size, and the specific laboratory conducting the analysis.
For routine testing of drinking water, the time frame can vary from a few days to a week. However, if specialised tests are required such as identification of specific microorganisms, the process may take longer.
It’s worth noting that the overall time for water testing will also depend on the process of obtaining the samples, including the preparation of the sampling plan, the collection of the samples, and their transportation to the laboratory.
What types of water can be tested?
Drinking water, surface water, ground water, swimming pool water, and waste water can all be tested for various parameters.
What are some common water contaminants that are tested for?
Bacteria, viruses, parasites, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, nitrates, and other dissolved minerals can be tested for in water.
