Water Testing

Domestic Wells

IAS Laboratories carry out all water testing for a variety of purposes including general safety monitoring or for individuals applying for private well filtration system grants. We provide a full service, from supplying sample bottles, carrying out all analysis and providing a full explanation of your results. Our explanation will include advice on how to deal with any issues you may have with lime, bacteria or other factors.

Most of our customers will have experienced an issue with their water in the past, they may be unsure if it is safe to drink if it hasn’t been tested in a long time. Some of our customers experience issues such as high hardness damaging their appliances or high manganese and iron changing the colour of the water or low pH value causing their pipes to corrode. Its very important that your well is tested once per year especially if there are young children or older people drinking the water as they may be more susceptible to illness if their is bacteria present in the water.

IAS Laboratories analyse for issues and components such as Hardness, Iron, Manganese and Bacteria, all in accordance with the S.I. 122 of 2014 Drinking Water Regulations.

Many people will be entitled to a grant for reopening a well or upgrading their well. Please check with your local council as to your entitlements.
