It is important to test your water to ensure it is safe to drink. The EPA recommends the monitoring of well water for bacteria annually and for chemical parameters every three years.
We provide testing to well owners, well drillers, filtration companies, industry, local county councils, Irish Water, group water schemes and Board Bia members as well as private domestic householders and other Business owners.
Even if your water has a satisfactory odour and taste, and shows no visual contamination, it may still pose a risk to your health. Poor quality water can damage your water system, i.e. acidic or hard water causing corrosion or lime scale, respectively.
