If you are concerned about your drinking water and ask yourself "How do I test my drinking water?", a full drinking water testing service is provided by Fitz Scientific. It is advisable, that if you are considering a water filtration system, that an independent laboratory like ourselves (who do not sell systems) carries out the drinking water analysis independently and then after the system is fitted that a retest is done to ensure filter system is working properly. This water test service includes well water testing and mains drinking water testing.
A Drinking Water Test Kit can be ordered over the phone or online which will be posted out to you. This kit contains bottles, gloves and instructions on how to take your drinking water sample properly. This can be ordered and paid for online here.
If you require an independent test, you can Schedule a Technician from Fitz Scientific to call to your home and take the Drinking water sample for you. The cost of this depends on your location so if you wish to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, location and phone number, we will reply to your query promptly.
Bottles can be collected by you at our laboratory located at Unit 35, Boyne Business Park, Drogheda. (North Side of Drogheda, on Newtown Road, near Greenhills College). Payment for analysis can be made at reception by cash, cheque or credit card.
