As an independent UK water quality testing company, we help homeowners across the UK test water quality at home. We can identify harmful contaminants typically found in tap water to help avoid drinking and washing with poor quality water.
Whether you’re concerned about the damaging effects of showering in hard water, or the poor quality of your tap water, our team is here to help. Unlike most companies, we can provide independent laboratory test results that are not designed to promote products or convince you to buy water filters. We simply want to empower you when it comes to testing UK water quality.


Frequently Asked Questions

The test kit that you need will depend on the contaminants you are interested in testing for. Single element water test kits are available, up to a whole house water test kit that includes sample bottles for multiple taps in your home. Our water testing kits are appropriate for tap water, pool water, aquariums, bore holes, and streams/springs.

In most cases having a water filter is a personal choice, for example if hard water is a problem. In other cases, it can be used to reduce the amount of harmful contaminants in your drinking water. We are not affiliated with any brands, but we can give advice on which type of filter might help. This could include sediment filters to help remove larger debris like sand, a water softener to remove sodium and calcium causing high water hardness, or a reverse osmosis system to remove common contaminants such as lead or fluoride.

Our water testing kits provide much more accurate results than a test strip can. We use state-of-the-art mass spectrometry equipment which gives us unrivalled sensitivity and resolution to below the parts per billion (ppb) level. This is important in detecting harmful contaminants as the legal drinking water limits often go to the ppb range. Test strips often cannot reach the required sensitivity and can produce false positives when other analytes are high in the water sample.

After purchasing the appropriate water quality test kit for you, we will post you a kit which includes a water sample bottle and instructions. No test strips are included, we do all the analysis for you. Once your water sample has been taken, simply post it back to us in the pre-paid envelope. You will be notified when your sample reaches us, and we will begin the analysis. When it is complete, we will upload your accurate results to our reporting site which will contextualise your results and provide you more information.
