Water Testing

RO Plant for Community

Water quality testing is important because it identifies the quantum of contaminants present in the water and prevents water-borne diseases.

Basically, water quality testing makes sure that water meets the standards both local and international and safe for drinking. This type of water testing can be completed by using water sampling techniques and using technology to estimate the amount and level of chemicals and other impurities present in the water.

All water for human and animal use should be tested for safety. In addition to household water, recreational and agricultural water should also be tested.

Once water testing is done, then the water analysis report can leader us towards the solution that water needs. For example if the water is more hard than usual then there is a need of water softener. If there is higher concentration of arsenic then arsenic removal filter is needed. So water testing is very important to diagnose the problem underlying in the water because on the base of that diagnosis the solution would be suggested.

Household Water Quality Testing

The usage of contaminated water specially for drinking can cause severe diseases or illness. That is why it is important to ensure that household water is safe, clear and free from bacteriological impurities and diseases.

The source water for household use is usually municipal supply water or bore well water. In any case it must be tested to maintain public health standards. In routine water testing of household water is necessary TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) levels first, to have an idea that how heavy the water is. Water Engineering Technologies offers this service free of cost to check the TDS levels of your source water with a handy TDS meter.
Therefore, you should test your own drinking water to determine the health and safety of your water supply. At home TDS testing is simple and can identify the presence of total dissolved solids in household water.

One of the most pertinent questions that arises when testing the quality of water, is what types of contaminants can be in the water other than TDS? The answer is Several contaminants which could be present in water. They are arsenic, coliform bacteria and E. coli; copper, fluoride, lead, manganese, nitrate, heavy metals and pesticides. For the testing of these contaminants water sample is need to be send in Water Testing Laboratory.

Here are the links of some popular and reliable water testing laboratories; these labs are governed by Government.
