One of the key challenges for event organisers & venue operators is that it can often be very difficult to organise one-off or irregular water sampling at a reasonable cost.

Furthermore, many of the results that are returned consist only of raw data, with little or no interpretation.

We make water quality testing simple and hassle free, backed up by industry leading expert advice and support.

Your Results

To get accurate results, samples are incubated which allows bacteria & organisms within the sample to ‘grow’, once they have grown a count can be provided. This is via an accredited UKAS methodology.

The incubation process takes 48h-72hrs. Result certificates are then emailed to you using our traffic-light colour coding system, compared against the EU bathing water standards, providing clear and easy to interpret results.
