Order a water test kit: when is tap water testing worth doing?
Even though UK drinking water is generally of very high quality, time and time again impure water can make it into homes and contaminate plumbing systems. Contamination can be caused by heavy metals (e.g. due to old lead pipes or new copper pipes in the house), bacteria such as legionella that settles in pipes or water heating systems, and a variety of other factors.

Water testing in an accredited laboratory
Your water sample is in good hands
After you have sent back your sample, one of our accredited water testing laboratories will carry out your chosen test. Our partners for water testing are various groups of laboratories, some of which have more than 23,000 employees working at over 225 locations in 39 countries and using over 150,000 different analytical methods. Your test is truly in good hands.

After you have ordered, you will receive your own professional test kit. Together with sterile containers and step-by-step instructions, it includes everything you need to send your water sample back, hassle-free.
Water analysis in an accredited water testing laboratory
After your water sample has arrived at the accredited laboratory, specialists carry out a thorough analysis of your drinking water using the latest scientific methods. Mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) is one of the methods used to measure chemical and physical parameters as precisely as possible. This guarantees accuracy and ensures even low concentrations of individual contaminants can be traced. For microbiological testing, e.g. for legionella or E.coli, conventional methods using cultures are used.
Your water analysis results - clear and fast
With the exception of the legionella test which takes around fourteen days, you will receive the results of your test within approx. 5 - 7 days. If you prefer, you can receive the analysis results by post, free of charge. You can view the results online and print them out in the comfort of your own home. To keep everything as straightforward as possible, the individual results are clearly laid out. In addition, they are compared with the maximum values stated in the Water Supply Regulations so that you can immediately spot potential threats. Not only do you find out if your water is contaminated, but you find out to what degree. The results are therefore ideal for submitting to landlords or property managers.
