Drinking Water Testing
Drinking water is water that has gone through a filtration process throughout the water treatment sources acquired from the main sources. Thus making drinking water reliably safe for humans to consume it.
Drinking Water Testing & Analysis
As drinking water is vital to human health, the water must be free of bacteria, heavy metals, and pesticides to avoid negative health effects. At IAQ Facility Services, assuring the quality of drinking water is done by testing and analysis. Drinking water may deceive people by its clean looks, and the filtration process it undergoes, because the bacteria and pathogens cannot be seen from the naked eye, but can be detected with laboratory equipment.
Frequently Asked Questions
You should test your drinking water once a year. It is strongly recommended to check for total coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, and pH levels. You should test for additional contaminants as well if you suspect they are present.
A private well relies on groundwater as its water source. It is common for groundwater to be contaminated by many different sources (e.g., the foods you eat, the water you drink, the products you use, and the waste materials you create.) Residual chemicals and minerals, which are abundant in nature, come from mother nature (e.g., arsenic, radon, uranium), area-specific land-use techniques (e.g., fertilisers, pesticides, livestock, animal feeding operations, biosolids application) and various manufacturing processes. Additionally, sewer overflows can happen, leaving systems not operating correctly (e.g., nearby septic systems).
