Having a water analysis service on your water supply will tell you exactly what is in the water and we can propose a filtration solution to meet your needs.

Pacific Water Technology Water Analysis Service

A water analysis service provides a comprehensive evaluation of water quality, identifying any contaminants or impurities that may be present. Here are some of the key benefits of having a water analysis service:

Ensuring safety: One of the most important benefits of water analysis is ensuring that the water is safe for use. A water analysis can identify any harmful substances, such as bacteria or heavy metals, that may be present in the water. This can help to prevent potential health risks for laboratory workers and ensure that experiments are not affected by contaminated water.

Maintaining equipment: Impurities in water can damage laboratory equipment, resulting in increased maintenance costs and reduced equipment lifespan. A water analysis service can help identify any impurities in the water that may be causing equipment damage, allowing you to take corrective action and prolong the lifespan of your equipment.

Improving experiment accuracy: Water quality can significantly affect the accuracy of laboratory experiments. Contaminants in the water can lead to inconsistent or inaccurate results, which can be detrimental to scientific research. A water analysis can help to identify any impurities that may be affecting experiment accuracy, allowing you to take corrective action and improve the quality of your research.

Meeting regulatory requirements: Many laboratories are required to meet specific regulatory requirements for water quality. A water analysis service can help ensure that your laboratory’s water supply meets these requirements, helping you to avoid regulatory issues and potential penalties.

Cost-effective: A water analysis service can be a cost-effective way to maintain water quality in your laboratory. By identifying any issues with water quality early on, you can take corrective action before they become more serious and more expensive to fix.

In conclusion, this service is essential for any laboratory that uses water in its experiments or processes. It helps ensure the safety of laboratory workers, maintains equipment, improves experiment accuracy, meets regulatory requirements, and is cost-effective. If you are looking to maintain high water quality standards in your laboratory, a water analysis service is an essential investment.

Water Analysis – Why?

Water testing is a vital component in determining the type of treatment that will be required; once we know what type of contaminants are in the water, we’ll be able to design a filtration system that will be right for you. It’s crucial that you get your water tested before investing money and time into a filtration system that may/may not be right for your water. Water varies from house to house, over time and also depends on the source (dam water, bore water etc.), as such a filtration system that might be right for your neighbour might not necessarily be right for you.

Water Analysis – How?

Once your required water analysis service is ordered (please don’t hesitate to call if you’re not sure on what type of analysis is required) and we have it in our system, we’ll contact you with instructions on how much water sample is required for your particular analysis. Once we receive the water samples, we’ll test them using a NATA approved laboratory (lead times are generally around 1-2 weeks) and send through the results pinpointing any possible issues with the water as well as discuss with you regarding a filtration solution catered to your requirements.
PLEASE NOTE: In some cases, the water being analysed i.e. your water supply might be deemed to be unusable. This is a key reason why we ask for an analysis prior to implementing any filtration system as this ensures that money is not wasted on a filtration system that will prove useless for your water supply.

Water Analysis – Which Test?

Our standard water analysis range includes 7 different ‘Standard’ tests depending on the type of application:

  • Basic Water Test: This is a basic test that will analyse and provide an overview as to the usability of the water. The test includes pH, Hardness, Salts, Iron (Fe) and Manganese (Mn).
    Please Note: Further testing may be required depending on the application.
  • Municipal Water Test: This test is used for analysing mains water. The test includes looking at guideline levels of Disinfection Level By-products (DBPs), pH, Hardness, Salts, Chlorine (Free + Total), TDS and TOC.
  • Irrigation Suite: This test is used for analysing water intended for irrigation purposes. The test includes Salts, Hardness, Bicarbonates and pH.
  • Bore water Suite: This test is a full comprehensive analysis used for analysing bore water and is generally taken when looking to use bore water for drinking/domestic applications. The test includes Heavy metals, turbidity, Alkalinity, Hardness, TDS, pH, Salt Index, Cations, Chlorine (Cl), Fluoride, Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Silicon (Si), Sulphates (SO4), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Nitrogen Oxide (Nox), Electrical Conductivity (EC).
  • Dam/Creek water Suite: This test is a full comprehensive analysis similar to the bore water suite, excluding heavy metals test but including tests for tannins, Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD).
  • Total Metal Analysis by ICPMS: This test analyses total potable water in the water. The test includes Aluminium (Al), Antimomy (Sb), Arsenic (As), Barium (Ba), Beryllium (Be), Boron (B), Cadmium (Cd), Calcium (Ca), Chromium (Cr), Cobalt (Co), Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Lead (Pb), Magnesium (Mg), Manganese (Mn), Molybdenum (Mo), Nickel (Ni), Potassium (K), Selenium (Se), Silica (SiO2), Silicon (Si), Silver (Ag), Sodium (Na), Strontium (Sr), Sulphate (SO4), Sulphur (S), Tin (Sn), Uranium (U), Vanadium (V) and Zinc (Zn).
  • Soluble Metal Analysis by ICPMS: This test includes Aluminium (Al), Arsenic (As), Barium (Ba), Boron (B), Cadmium (Cd), Calcium (Ca), Chromium (Cr), Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Lead (Pb), Magnesium (Mg), Manganese (Mn), Mercury (Hg), Molybdenum (Mo), Nickel (Ni), Silica (SiO2), Sodium (Na), Sulphur (S), and Zinc (Zn).
