Expert water testing and laboratory analysis services
Our specialist laboratory based water testing and in-field water sampling solutions include:
Laboratory Water Testing & Analysis
Microbiological analysis of water for Legionella, Pseudomonas, Coliforms, E.coli, Total Viable Counts (TVCs) and other parameters.
Laboratory testing for chemical parameters in water.
Monitoring & Validation
Latest water analysis equipment to monitor and validate water treatment programme performance.
Water quality evaluation and the expert interpretation of laboratory results is incredibly important, which makes fast and accurate testing essential in so many different circumstances.
Our teams of highly trained technicians are experienced in obtaining and handling water samples so as to maintain a high standard throughout the sampling and collection process. Our UKAS accredited Laboratory partner are set up specifically to handle expert testing whenever required by our clients.
Our sampling services include the analysis of potable water (drinking water), swimming pool and spa waters, hydrotherapy pools, natural recreational waters, domestic hot and cold water installations; water used in cooling systems, cooling towers, industrial and manufacturing processes, and other commercial and healthcare settings.
Testing for waterborne pathogens & chemicals
Our professional water quality analysis and water sampling services cover a wide range of tests that include microbiological, chemical and physical parameters:
- Microbiological testing of water
- Legionella bacteria
- Total Viable Counts (TVCs)
- Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other Pseudomonas species
- Staphylococcus aureus
Chemical parameters in water
- Dissolved oxygen
- Hardness, alkalinity
- Redox potential
- Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
- Heavy metals
- Non metals
Physical parameters in water
- Effluent analysis
- Suspended solids
- Silt Density Index (SDI)
- Sludge Density
On completion of laboratory analysis, a full report is issued and our experts are on-hand to explain the results and what these mean for you, and the safety and health of those exposed to your water systems.
You can therefore be confident in choosing us for all your sampling, water testing and laboratory analysis requirements.
Testing water across all business sectors
Regardless of the reason why you need your water testing, it is reassuring to know Integrated Compliance have experience across all business sectors.
We provide professional advice and support for customers who believe they may need to test the quality of their water, but are unsure of which tests are required to best meet their needs.
How do I control the risks from legionella in my water system?
The key point is to design, maintain and operate your water services under conditions that will either prevent or adequately control the risk from legionella bacteria. It is important that you either have, or have access to, competent help to fulfil these obligations.
If you identify a risk that you are unable to prevent, you must introduce appropriate controls. You should introduce a course of action that will help you to control any risks from legionella by describing:
- your system and its component parts eg developing a schematic diagram
- who is responsible for carrying out the assessment and managing its implementation
- the safe and correct operation of your system
- what control methods and other precautions you will be using
- what checks will be carried out to ensure risks are being managed and how often
You should where appropriate:
- ensure that the release of water spray is properly controlled
- avoid water temperatures and conditions that favour the growth of legionella and other micro-organisms
- ensure water cannot stagnate anywhere in the system by keeping pipe lengths as short as possible or by removing redundant pipe work
- avoid materials that encourage the growth of legionella (The Water Fittings & Materials Directory references fittings, materials, and appliances approved for use on the UK Water Supply System by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme)
- keep the system and the water in it clean
- treat water to either control the growth of legionella (and other microorganisms) or limit their ability to grow.
