At Aldgate Pump Sales & Service we know ground water is not always safe.
Even if it looks clear and tastes good. What about the things you can’t see
and taste, like metals, pH and bacteria? A laboratory water analysis
that will let you know the real quality of your water. Once you have a water
analysis, let us recommend a system for you.
• Testing rain water for unhealthy organisms
• Testing ground water (dam and bore etc)
• Getting the most out of your bore water
* Please note these water tests are not applicable for pool water
There are three types of water analysis
Basic: Done by Aldgate Pump Sales & Service
A basic test done in store, suitable for non-potable water. We test for: pH, TDS, Electrical Conductivity, Iron and Hardness. This test is perfect for ground water analysis. If irregularities are shown, further chemical testing may be required. If there is any chance of human consumption, chemical and biological testing should be performed.
Chemical: Aldgate Pumps can organise via a laboratory in Melbourne
A laboratory chemical test will give a detailed analysis including pH, Hardness, Iron, Copper, Lead, Sodium, Electrical Conductivity and more. This test is for potable (drinking) water. Samples must be collected in specific bottles for testing. Please call or email for details.
Biological: (Suggest contacting AWQC - a Division of SA Water)
A laboratory biological test will test for the presence of coliforms and bacteria including Ecoli. Samples must be taken in a specific bottle and reach the laboratory within 24 hours of sample taken. Please not: If the water is for drinking (potable) purpose, then a biological analysis should be undertaken.
A Laboratory Test for your bore and rainwater testing
Please visit the AWQC site at www.awqc.com.au for information. Once the analysis has been completed, bring it to Aldgate Pumps for evaluation.
Aldgate Pump Sales & Service can then recommend a water system test procedure to get the most out of your water. Whether it’s for potable (drinking) water, stock or simply for irrigation. Contact an Aldgate Pumps Sales person on (08) 8339 6577 for details on our water analysis procedure.
