– Water sampling selected from different source (different from distribution system that is consumable).
– Water sampling taken at the most unfavourable sources or locations within the supply chain, especially potential contamination points such as unprotected sources, loops, reservoirs, low-pressure zones, and system ends, etc.
– Water sampling points taken at every connection point or branches.
– General sampling point should be taken, represent the whole water system.
– Location of water sampling (if water system has more than one source of water).
– Clean water outlet water sampling from treatment plant (at least one sampling point)
Frequently Asked Questions
Water testing is a critical part of public and environmental safety, and as such it must be done in accordance with stringent regulatory requirements. As a manager or owner of a facility, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety and health of the occupants. Water analysis can reduce the risk and the potentially damaging impact on both public health and the environment.
Most people in the area use public water for drinking and domestic purposes. So therefore, it is critical to check for contaminants. Regardless of the water source, water-quality checks should be performed annually. Most tap water tests for chlorine levels, pH, and bacteria.
Testing yearly even if you aren’t suspecting a contaminant is prudent. Some water issues can’t be detected using conventional means.
