Flotter u. (08.12.2015)
Our tap water stinks and so we opted for the Bacteria Test. We did the Legionella Test too. Both test results arrived on time.

Please note that this test serves as a self-monitoring tool and cannot be used for official or legal purposes because the sample is taken by you as a private individual and not by a specialist. If you require officially approved results in accordance with the Water Supply Regulations (e.g. for landlords or housing companies), the sample must be taken by a specialist. If you have questions concerning this, contact us and we will be happy to advise you.
