Lead Water Test


Recommended for targeted lead testing in drinking water. 

Lead is a toxic heavy metal commonly found in UK drinking water, particularly in houses built before the 1970s when lead water pipes were frequently used. Lead is also often a concern for houses with private water supplies (such as boreholes) where the pH of the water may increase corrosion of lead pipes.

Lead can leach from water supply pipes, domestic plumbing, and brass fittings in both hard and soft water areas. Lead can build up in the body and it is recommended that exposure to lead is minimised as far as possible. 

Our lead water test provides an analysis of lead contaminants that are found in drinking water. We report the level of lead in parts per billion (equivalent to micrograms per litre) along with pH (acidity), total dissolved solids and water hardness.

Unlike cheaper lead test kits that such as test strips, we determined the amount of lead in our laboratory using a highly sensitive technique called ICP-MS (inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry) which is a gold standard method within the water analysis industry.

Our service includes tracked royal mail delivery both ways.

When we have results, you can view them on-line and start learning about your tap water quality.

The Water Professor offers a service which will provide you with information about your water and may help you make informed decisions about whether you wish to purchase water purification products.

The information provided by The Water Professor is for personal use. Our services are designed for home testing, as such, the water samples are not taken by certified specialists and therefore cannot be used for official or legal purposes.

If you require certified results (e.g. housing companies or landlords) then water samples will need to be collected by a certified professional, please contact our customer support team to discuss.
