Water Sampling and Testing

What you should know

Landmark Specialist Solutions offers an nationwide service for all your water sampling and testing requirements.  The samples taken on site are sent to UKAS accredited laboratories for testing and the reports produced.

Typically sampling specified as a result of a Water Risk Assessment will cover Legionella, E.coli and other bacteria but we can also sample and test for a wide range of substances including the testing of closed water systems

Where water sampling is recommended, this is normally carried out as close to the water inlet for the building as possible, at any storage points and at a specified number of water outlets. By comparing both the stored water readings and outlet readings with the inlet figures, any areas of concern can be quickly identified and rectification put in place. Any changes at an outlet over time would also indicate something that might need to be investigated.

Landmark Specialist Solutions provides expert microbiological analysis of water for Legionella, Pseudomonas, Coliforms, E.coli, Total Viable Counts (TVCs) and other parameters. All samples are tested in UKAS accredited Laboratories.
