Water Testing and Analysis

It’s not always apparent what’s in your water. Some contaminants go unnoticed, and others cause a terrible smell, scale buildup or fouling. At SA Clean Water, we are experts in South Africa’s water, and with our free water testing, we can check for common issues like hardness, chlorine, total dissolved solids (TDS) and iron. We can also send your test to our SANS accredited testing lab for a more in-depth test.

If you’re concerned about the quality of your water, it’s important to get it tested. SA Clean Water offers free water testing and analysis, so you can be sure that your water is safe to drink. To learn more, book a test today or give us a call.

Types of Lab Water Testing

One of the most common water testing and analysis methods is through a water testing lab. Water testing labs can test for various contaminants, including bacteria, viruses, and chemicals. Labs typically use one or more of several other methods to test water samples, including:

  • Microbiological analysis: This type of analysis uses a microscope to detect the presence of bacteria and other microorganisms in water.

  • Chemical analysis: This type of analysis uses various chemical tests to detect the presence of chemical contaminants in water.

  • Radiological analysis: This type of analysis uses radiation to detect the presence of radioactive elements in the water.

What is Water Testing and Analysis

We at SA Clean Water believe that if it concerns your health and your family’s health, you should know the facts about your water. This is why it is essential to test your home or business water at least once a year or, at the very least, once a new water source is installed. We say once a year because a water source’s quality constantly varies. Variables like pipe breakages, plant maintenance or breakdowns, oversights, nearness of your borehole to septic systems or the composition of your home’s plumbing materials. Whether you are based in Johannesburg, Gauteng or Cape Town, several variables can affect your water quality, meaning water testing is your best option.

Poor water quality can present itself in a variety of less severe ways like taste, colour, odour or staining of clothes. More seriously, poor water can lead to illness and, in some cases, death. This is why it is imperative for drinking water testing to be conducted on your water.

Even if you currently know or think your water is safe, keeping a record of water quality is always a good idea. Suppose your drinking water does not come directly from the municipality, or you get your water from a borehole on your property. In that case, you alone are responsible for assuring it is safe for use. Because of this, routine testing for, at the very least, the most common contaminants is highly recommended.

Now you might be thinking, where do I find a water testing lab near me? Well, this is where we come in. Although we are based in Johannesburg, we conduct water testing throughout South Africa daily. We, therefore, have a clear understanding of general water quality in areas around the country.
