Water Testing & Analysis admin
Water Supplied to Health & Safety Standards
At Johnny Flood Water Pumps we provide clients with the peace of mind with comprehensive water testing. We work closely with an independent specialized laboratory. This ensures that it is safe for human consumption and that it complies to EU drinking water standards.
These labs test private drinking water wells to a standard list of tests and/or to customer requirements. We advise that private well owners test their drinking water supply annually, especially after a spell of bad weather. This helps to identify if further treatment is required.
Directive 2000/60/EC (OJ L327, p1, 22/12/2000) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2000 establishing a framework for Community action in the field of water policy.
Should I get my water tested?
Here is a useful link as to why you should get your water tested.
Proper maintenance of wells is important to avoid illness. Contaminated water may not look cloudy. It may not smell differently or taste strange. But the water that you are drinking could still carry a health risk. Regular water testing is therefore advised so that contaminants can be identified. Your water test results also help identify the optimal type of treatment.
This applies to:
Users of private wells
Nurseries and creches
Colleges and schools
Fruit and veg providers
Any situation where water is stored prior to drinking
