How does this service work?
First you must purchase your test package at the fee outlined above, in addition to any of the tests below which you may choose to supplement with. Typically these tests are only required if you have a suspicion that your water already suffers from one of the issues outlined. However, if you are unsure you may ring 01507 608100 and speak to one of our engineers before proceeding.
Once payment has been received we will send you the sample bottles which you will need to fill and then post on a Next Day service (Royal Mail Special Delivery or similar) to the laboratory. Full details will be enclosed with the sample bottles.
Your samples will be overnighted to our laboratory and your tests should be completed within 12 working days after receipt. At this point we will email you a copy of your analysis, along with a recommendation on what treatment solutions may be applicable to resolve them.
Do we guarantee our tests?
We have been in the water treatment business over 25 years and throughout this time have been involved in hundreds of private water treatment projects ranging from small domestic dwellings up to large clients such as Meadowhall, Pepsi and Unilever. Typically we know what to expect on most reports from the different areas of the UK, and should something seem amiss we will always investigate further.
Are there any catches?
No catches. In addition to your test results you will be given a FREE review of the test with our engineer along with a recommendation of what you can do to fix it. This is included with your email and whilst we would hope you'd consider us for any treatment options (if any are necessary), we certainly do not chase customers, send out pushy salemen or cold-call.
Can I cancel my test?
You may cancel your test up until it reaches the laboratory at which point the costs incurred do not make it feasible. If you cancel your test at any stage prior to receipt at the lab you will be liable just for the charges incurred up to that point which will consist of one or two courier deliveries and the cost of the bottles supplied - In most cases this is under £20.
